5 Biggest Stadiums In The NFL

 When you look at sports betting lines, the location of the game matters. This is because some NFL teams have a greater at-home playing advantage than others.

There are 30 NFL stadiums for the 32 different NFL teams entering the 2022 season.

While twenty-eight of these venues are occupied by single teams, only two of these venues are co-inhabited by multiple NFL teams; the MetLife Stadium and the SoFi Stadium.

Here are the five biggest stadiums in the NFL today.

MetLife Stadium
Located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the multi-purpose Metlife Stadium is an impressive feat. Originally known as Meadowlands Stadium, the Metlife came about due to an agreement by two NFL teams – the New York Giants and the New York Jets – to construct the huge stadium.

The MetLife stadium first opened in April 2010 and is currently the largest NFL stadium in the US, with a maximum seated capacity of 82,500.

The stadium contains four luxury club spaces equalling around 10,000 seats in total and features dual training facilities for both teams. The venue also has amenities to host other events like concerts and wrestling tournaments.

FedEx Field
Located in Landover, Maryland, and home to the Washington Redskins, the FedEx Field Stadium is the second-largest NFL stadium around. It is 500 seats shy of being the biggest NFL stadium but still maintains an impressive 82,000-seat capacity.

Originally known as the Jack Kent Cooke Stadium in honor of the Redskins owner at the time, this stadium sits on a 200-acre site and opened in Fall 1997. It was fully operating just in time for the Redskins vs. Cardinals game (which the Redskins won.)

It used to hold 91,000 spectators but after attendance numbers declined, the Redskins removed thousands of seats.

The stadium contains the Bud Light Social Lounge thanks to a partnership with Anheuser Busch, which includes Bud Light beer, tablets, a virtual field goal kick, and lots of Xbox Ones.

Lambeau Field
Home to the Green Bay Packers, Lambeau Field stands as an iconic and fiercely adored NFL stadium by fans. It is not the oldest NFL stadium but is one of the only NFL stadiums to have a continuous team residence since opening.

Lambeau Field gets its name from the head coach, player, and founder of the Packers, Curly Lambeau, and is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Lambeau Field opened in 1957 and hosts over 81,400 seats that range in price from $100 to $400 during a regular season.

One of its most iconic features is the 376,000-square foot Atrium found on the east side of the stadium. This is five stories high and contains easy-to-rent private rooms, and a range of entertainment, retail, and dining options.

AT&T Stadium
Formerly known as the Cowboys Stadium, AT&T Stadium opened in May 2009 and is one of the newer stadiums in the NFL. The retractable roof stadium is home to “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys.

During the regular season, this Arlington stadium has a current seating capacity of 80,000 but can expand to accommodate 100,000 seats for special events like the Super Bowl.

In addition to hosting NFL games, the venue is home to basketball games, concerts, college football championships, and professional wrestling tournaments. You can also find many pieces of interesting art pieces built directly into the architecture of the stadium’s interior.

AT&T’s scoreboard holds a Guinness World Record for being the World’s Largest High-Definition Video Display.

Arrowhead Stadium
This stadium in the NFL has been open since 1972 and primarily serves as Kansas City Chiefs’ home venue. It sits in Kansas City, Missouri, and has a current seating capacity of 76,416.

After renovations took place in 2010, this venue stands out as one of the more extremely eye-catching NFL stadiums in the US. This renovation included an expansion of the seats within the stadium, leading to a bigger seating capacity.

Unlike other sports stadiums on this list, the Arrowhead Stadium was not built for multi-purpose use and is just intended to host football games.

The stadium features several concession areas, and facilities including a club restaurant and an upper deck with expensive suites. It also boasts an extensive art collection inside – a lot of which comes from local Kansas City artists.

Summary
These are the 5 biggest stadiums within the NFL. Though some venues have more facilities for fans to enjoy than others, each of these stadiums has unique characteristics that make them so iconic.
