If you’re travelling through America, you’re probably interested in seeing at least one NFL game at some stage. No other sport is as “American” as the NFL, and watching a game is a great way for visitors to learn more about both the sport, and American culture.
The atmosphere is what makes NFL games so amazing to watch, and this has a lot to do with the quality of the stadium. Some are simply a cut above the rest, so here are the best NFL stadiums in the USA:
Heinz Field, Pittsburgh
This stadium has a capacity of 65,000, and the whole place becomes highlighter yellow whenever there’s a home game. The championship trophy case is pretty amazing, and the aura and view of the river make the stadium one of the best in the NFL.
NRG Stadium, Houston
With a capacity of 71,500, this stadium somehow matches luxury with fun. This stadium has been sold out for every single home game since it was built in 2002, and with 7,000 club seats combined with 186 luxury seats, it’s no wonder why the stadium is so popular.
Gillette Stadium, Foxboro
Almost 69,000 people can fit inside this world-class facility, and it has hosted international soccer, as well as some of the biggest and best NFL games in history. This is the grounds of the patriots, and provides an exceptional experience for fans, along with an incredibly intimidating home-field advantage. Outside the stadium you’ll find a huge entertainment district which is perfect for drinks, food, and tailgating.
Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas city
This is a relatively old stadium, as it was built in 1972. However the capacity is on the larger side, at 76,416, and the tailgating is some of the best in the country. Plus the stadium is the fifth-largest in the United States, and has been consistently renovated to stay up to date.
MetLife Stadium, Meadowlands
This is the largest NFL stadium in the United States, with a capacity of 82,500. The stadium was built in 2010 and cost $1.6 billion in construction. It houses both the New York Jets and the New York Giants, and hosted a Super Bowl in 2013.
AT&T Stadium, Arlington
80,000 people can fit inside this stadium, and if you include standing room it’s 105,000. The roof is retractable, and the stadium is the home field for the Dallas Cowboys. The fan experience is unparalleled here, and the sleek architecture is sure to impress.
Soldier Field, Chicago
This stadium can best be described as vintage. Built in 1924, it has a capacity of 61,500, and an old-school feel with updated amenities which keep fans returning for more. This is the oldest stadium in the NFL, and well worth a visit for any fan.
Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara
This was built in 2014, and has a capacity of 68,500. Its state-of-art features make it one of the best in the league, and it is also impressively environmentally friendly with solar power panels and a green roof.
