Philadelphia Eagles Planning Major Stadium Refurbish

The Philadelphia Eagles would like to spruce up their 10-year-old home, Lincoln Financial Field. Specifically, the team would like to add seats and install field-level luxury suites that would help generate additional revenue.

According to the Sporting News, the renovation plans are still being finalized. A proposal was issued by the team in May spelling out some of the potential improvements. The architectural firm Gensler was hired to develop the plans. Construction would take place over the course of two offseasons.

The estimated cost would range somewhere between $60 million and $100 million, representing a significant upgrade to the stadium. Who would pay for the renovations was not spelled out in the proposal, and a spokesperson for the Eagles would not comment. Lincoln Financial Field is owned by the city. Contractors had until June 1 to submit bids.

Lincoln Field is one of nine NFL stadiums build in the last decade. If this renovation happens, it would be the first to undergo such a significant upgrade. Field-level suites carry a six figure cost to purchase, and are a relatively new concept in NFL stadiums. Four facilities built in the last 10 years include field-level suits.
