The fact that the bowl is closer to the pitch may help to create a good atmosphere. I like that, but I dont know what is to feel a NFl match.

You should go to a Seattle Seahawks game. They easily have the loudest fans in the NFL.

In Canada, the bowl is often closer to the pitch than in US stadiums, but the field is much wider (65 yards vs. 53.33 yards) and much longer (150 yards vs. 120 yards including end zones). You could have similar design and capacity, but the US stadium is going to feel bigger due to cramming more people into a smaller space. The only option is more rows which gives the feeling of being walled in on all sides with fans.

This results in better atmosphere. A Canadian stadium would need capacity about 40% higher to attain the same feel. I agree with you regarding the US stadia. The dimensions of the field allow for great stadium atmosphere.

Mall of America Field? The era of corporate names on stadia has just reached a new low. No wonder the Twins can't wait to leave.

Actually, the name of the Metrodome hasn't changed at all. All Mall of America did was buy the naming rights to the field.

Of course, this means the full name is:

Mall of America Field at The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome

yeah... kind of a mouthful...
