Are you ready for some $2.1 billion dollar football?
The Tennessee Titans sure are, and they are excited to let people know what their new stadium, which is set to open in 2027, will look like both inside and out.
A video that was released earlier today showcased the new $2.1 billion dollar replacement for Nissan Stadium and how it will be enjoyed during game days, concerts, and other events.
I’ll give them credit for the video rendering and animation because it really gives a cool sneak peak for what to expect once the state-of-the-art stadium is complete four years from now (fingers crossed).
However, I do have to knock the music choice down a couple of notches. I see what they were trying to do with it, but if you are going to go for a Johnny Cash song, just use an actual Cash song.
Instead of the classic, timeless version of “Ring of Fire,” the video included a melodic, dreamy cover version of the song, which I personally feel like took away from the reveal as a whole. It was kind of distracting, and could have really been driven home by the actual Cash version (there must have been some copyright issues).
In addition to the video, the Tennessee Titans also introduced a brand new website that will allow for people to keep track of the stadium’s building progress, get updates with news regarding the stadium, and even sign up for a waitlist for personal seating licenses, as well as information on season tickets.
As far as where the enclosed stadium itself will be located, the massive new football arena will be on the East Bank of Nashville close to where the existing Nissan Stadium stands. It will be a 1.75 million square feet facility, and will be locked in for a lease of 30 years, meaning that the Titans aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The stadium was designed by Manica Architecture, which has previously designed other sports arenas such as Allegiant Stadium, NRG Stadium, and Wembley Stadium.
The Titans’ new home will be able to house 55,000 to 60,000 people (which is smaller than their current stadium), and hopes to bring in hosting opportunities for other sporting events like the Final Four and the Super Bowl.
