The Linc was officially opened in August, 2003 to replace the Veterans Stadium. Construction began in 2001 and it took two years to complete. The Lincoln Financial group acquired the rights to name the stadium in 2002, for a whooping sum of over $139 million. This naming right was valid for 21 years. The sale of builder licenses to Eagles season ticket holders played a major role in raising additional funds to construct the massive stadium with a capacity of a little over 69,000.
In 2013, the Eagles decided to give The Linc a face lift. This was in a bid to upgrade the stadium to modern standards. In so doing, it was expected that even Eagles odds would be boosted. These improvements would take two years and in this regard, they were major developments. The upgrade saw the installation of two new High Definition video boards, expansion of the sitting arrangements, Wi-Fi incorporation and the addition of two bridges that would connect upper levels.
Overall, there was an upgrade of other amenities to modernize the stadium. The decision to make improvements was informed by research conducted on fan focus groups, ticket holders for the season and consultation with advisory boards.
Veterans Stadium
This stadium had a very bad reputation when it came to the playing field. For over thirty years, it was home to the Eagles (NFL) and the Phillies (MLB). Initially, the stadium was due to open in 1970, but there were delays; it finally opened in April 1971. The delay was caused by a myriad of challenges including construction delay, labor strikes and harsh weather. Because of the deteriorating playing turf, the Phillies and Eagles were in need of a new stadium. Veterans Stadium took the final bow when it was brought down on the 21st of March, 2004.
The Eagles hosted the Buccaneers of Tampa Bay at The Linc on Monday Night Football. This was the first NFL game for the regular season. At this inaugural game, the Eagles were defeated at home. However, the Eagles would recover later in the season; where in their second NFC championship game, they silenced Atlanta to head to the Super Bowl in 2004. This would be their second appearance at the Super Bowl.
College Football
As the home field for the Temple Owls, the Lincoln Financial Filed hosted its first college football in 2003. Here, Temple played Villanova. Later the same year, The Linc was sold out for Temple meetings with Notre Dame and Penn State. The Linc is also the notable home to the ArmyNavy Game. From 2003, the stadium has hosted this game over five times.
This stadium has also hosted many soccer games. The first was in August 2003 where European soccer clubs Manchester United and Barcelona clashed. In 2009, the stadium played host to the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal. The U.S bid committee for the soccer World cup named the Lincoln Financial Field as one of the potent stadiums for hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The stadium was featured in a list of 18 potential stadiums.
Which are the best seats at the Lincoln Financial Field?
Near the midfield, in the first rows of the 200 level is the best place to watch an Eagles game. For those at 100 level, sitting above row 10 will give you the best vantage point to all the corners of the field.
