Bring it! Looking forward to an awesome road trip for the occasion.
Holy schnikes that's a leap! Yeah, maybe not go to the well right away.It may be a year or two before the City of Nashville digs out of it's financial hole before serious work begins. Just raised property taxes 32% to be on par with other cities.
A few notes about upgrading the 22 year old Nissan Stadium are included in the following card I made....
It quotes comments the NFL Tennessee Titans controlling owner, Amy Adams, made within the past year. Bullets are....
- She doesn't want a new stadium, just significant upgrades
- She likes the way the Miami Dolphins upgraded their stadium recently
- It has been estimated upgrades may cost up to $300,000,000.
- The State of Tennessee has already approved a revenue stream that will cover some of the expenses.
- It may be a year or two before the City of Nashville digs out of it's financial hole before serious work begins. Just raised property taxes 32% to be on par with other cities. The city has had trouble building infrastructure fast enough to keep up with the incredible growth and went into the red.
- Should be good to go for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
- And there have been hints of holding a cold weather Super Bowl also.
Not many particulars. I don't see a canopy working very well as the lighting would have to be rebuilt and it would only shade the western end of the stadium. "Fan experience' is the wording she used to described what she sees as important in an upgraded stadium. I'm not sure what Miami specifically did to improve fan experience.Any particulars to the type of improvements they're seeking? Do they want a canopy like Miami or just a lof the behind-the-scenes stuff?

The city has spent a lot of money in recent years replacing all seats in the stadium, new ribbon boards, upgraded sound system, a Wi-Fi network and aesthetic improvements to coincide with the Nissan Stadium naming (Nissan has a large plant in the burbs and their North American HQ is also in the suburbs). It's a fun place to watch a game.

EDIT; The 80,000 seat increased capacity mentioned above is a temporary expansion created by adding another 10,000+ bleacher seats in the end zones only if Nashville were named a World Cup host city.
I dunno, Nashville would seem like a great place to host Superbowl. Stadium gonna need a roof for that, though.Granted, I have not been to a Titans game since 2001 (right before I moved away from TN), but I thought it was a solid stadium. I am glad they want to they want to keep it. A football stadium in TN does not need a roof.
There are apparently no renderings or sketches, but I suppose those will come after the public input phase.Nissan Stadium is poised for major renovations in the coming years, including a 100-acre mixed-used development that would bring a new entertainment hub and housing options to its campus.
Mayor John Cooper and the Titans, in talks for a stadium deal since spring, are going public this week with the discussion as they say they're ready for community input.
The stadium project, with an emphasis on creating a "neighborhood," is designed to act as a catalyst for the city’s bigger vision for East Bank of the Cumberland River and further bond the franchise to Nashville.
It's promising to see that efforts are being made to at least begin and continue talks regarding the upgrades. Some indication of the eventual scope of the ultimate project was stated as follows...Think Wrigley Field's Wrigleyville. The concept includes riverfront parks, green space, housing, offices, retail and restaurants – and possibly one or two hotels.
Financial details are slim, but it will take state legislation to make it happen. Cooper and Titans officials said the development will be privately funded and will generate millions in new tax revenue annually to fund stadium upgrades – mitigating the city's financial burden.
There is a lot of room for urban development (no baseball stadium) in those parking lots;The city's lease agreement with the team makes Metro responsible for upkeep at the stadium, as it previously did for Bridgestone Arena. A 2017 study on the aging stadium found a need for nearly $300 million in improvements over the next 20 years, from upgrading old technology, scoreboard and video displays to fixing the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
But changes will go beyond those upgrades, said Gil Beverly, the team's senior vice president and chief marketing and revenue officer. Fans, he said, want better amenities and better access. .....
Currently, Nissan offers a narrow range of experiences. The Titans want to diversify that.
More standing room. More premium options. But also more inclusive club areas. More screens throughout the facility. All-you-can-eat. And the surrounding development would provide pre- and postgame opportunities to encourage people to stick around.
"It'll be sort of the place where you're going to want to be," Beverly said. "It'll be more of a destination for your Sunday, as opposed to just come in and watch the game and get out."
