Tennessee Titans Unveil Images of New Proposed Stadium
The Titans are on the move. On Tuesday, the Tennessee Titans released images and a video of the proposed $2.1 billion stadium.
Last week, the Titans and the City of Nashville reached a proposed agreement on the new, enclosed stadium. With the new trend for NFL teams to opt for an enclosed stadium, teams hope that this could be a pathway for hosting multiple events, most notably bringing a Super Bowl to their particular city.
The Titans’ new stadium is expected to be 1.7 million square feet with the capacity to hold around 60,000 fans. Approximately 12,000 square feet of community space will be built outside the stadium for non-profits and community events, per the release. The Titans’ new home will have a translucent roof along with many other features inside the new state-of-the-art stadium. The same firm that designed Allegiant Stadium, home of the Raiders, designed this proposed stadium.
“We envision a potential new stadium that makes our community proud and enhances the reputation of our great city and state,” Titans president and CEO Burke Nihill said. “We’re focused on designing a stadium capable of hosting a prestigious international event on a Sunday and a steady flow of impactful community programming later that same week. This is a building that would serve Nashville and Tennessee for generations.”
With the Titans dropping these images for the new stadium, the team will finally leave Nissan Stadium, which the team has called home since 1999. The team has recorded a record of 109-79 during that stretch. In addition to that record, the Tennessee Titans hold a record of 2-4 during the playoffs at Nissan.
The Titans still have 17 years left on their lease at Nissan Stadium, but it has been rated as one of the worst stadiums in the NFL. The team has come out and said it would cost $1.8 billion in renovations to get it up to quality with stadiums across the league. With that being the case, a new stadium for the Titans was always in the future.
NFL teams have been going with the new trend of enclosed stadiums in recent years. The Raiders, Rams, Chargers, Vikings and Falcons have recently opted for a dome stadium. The only team not to opt for a new enclosed stadium would be the 49ers with Levi’s Stadium. The Titans are hoping on the trend with their new stadium. The team will hope to host Final Fours, Super Bowls and multiple other big events. If everything goes according to plan, the new stadium should be ready by 2026.
