There's nothing like going to your first Sunday NFL game, sitting in a stadium with all the excitement, and watching your favorite players and idols take the field.
These are some of the best NFL Stadiums to enjoy a game at. They were judged on overall look and construction of the stadium, the tailgating, the team quality, the overall atmosphere, and the accessibility.
Located in the Windy City along the shores of Lake Michigan is Soldier Field, the home of the Chicago Bears. When fans think of Soldier Field, they may think that it is the oldest stadium in the NFL. However, it is one of the newer stadiums in the league. The original Soldier Field opened in 1924 and had a seating capacity of 74,000. The Bears moved here from Wrigley Field in 1971
With the current stadium capacity of 61,500, Soldier Field became the smallest stadium in the NFL after the remodel in 2003.
Opened : 1972
Capacity : 79,451
Arrowhead has long held a reputation for being one of the loudest outdoor stadiums in the NFL due to the exuberance of the Chiefs' fans. Fan generated noise was once measured at 116 decibels by the Acoustical Design Group of Mission, KS. This contributes to the unique "atmosphere" of the stadium, which Sports Illustrated quoted as the reason they gave Arrowhead Stadium the title of being the "Toughest Place to Play" for opposing teams. They explained, "When the Chiefs are having a bad season, they’re tough to beat at Arrowhead. When they’re having a good season, they’re unbeatable. With the scent of barbecue in the air and a sea of red in the stands, Kansas City is the best football atmosphere in the country."
Invesco Field at Mile High (commonly known as Invesco Field) is a stadium in Denver, Colorado. Invesco Field at Mile High replaced the identically sized, but commercially obsolete Mile High Stadium (named for the fact that Denver is exactly one mile above sea level) in 2001. The stadium is best known as the home of the Denver Broncos of the NFL.
The Field being a mile high above sea level really gives Denver Broncos one of the best home field advantages in the entire league. And you know when you enter Bronco Country and their fans will let you know too.
Heinz Field is a stadium located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It primarily serves as the home to the Pittsburgh Steelers and University of Pittsburgh Panthers American football teams, members of the National Football League (NFL) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) respectively. The stadium opened in 2001, after the controlled implosion of the teams' previous stadium, Three Rivers Stadium. The stadium is named for locally based H. J. Heinz Company, which purchased the naming rights in 2001.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have the biggest and the best fans in the NFL and maybe in all of sports, period. The noise and fans really push this stadium up there.
Lambeau Field was the first stadium built for the exclusive use of an NFL team, and is the longest continuously-occupied stadium in the NFL. And for that reason it is the stadium with the best history, end of story. It is quoted to be a "religous experience" and a must see to any NFL fan.
