Lincoln Financial Field - Philadelphia, PA

Located about seven miles from downtown Philadelphia, Lincoln Financial Field is an open-air multipurpose stadium often referred to as “The Linc.” It’s the home of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles, and is one of the few NFL stadiums that is also the home to a collegiate team, the Temple Owls of Temple University. Lincoln Financial Field opened in 2003, and its first ticketed event was a soccer match between Manchester United and FC Barcelona. A few weeks later, the Eagles played their first pre-season game against the New England Patriots in the stadium. Since then, it’s played host to a number of major sports and entertainment events including the home games of the Eagles and Temple Owls, three NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championships, soccer matches and live concerts by music legends. Its event spaces have been used for tradeshows and corporate events.

Lincoln Financial Field has a seating capacity of 69,054 with 685 wheelchair accessible seats. It has 172 luxurious suites with 3,040 seats, and two club lounges with 10,828 seats. The stadium is known for its wing-like roof structures that provide covering for fans during stormy weather, and also channels the noise back into the stadium. Lincoln Financial Field boasts one of the largest and most sophisticated video boards in the NFL, located at the north and south end zones. The best seats are located in the sections closest to midfield in the lower and club levels, which provide fans the opportunity to see the plays progress from all corners of the field. Lincoln Financial Field parking lots can accommodate 22,000 vehicles. Public and private tours are available all year round except during game days and special events.

Spend a few days in the “City of Brotherly Love” and be dazzled by its array of attractions. Philadelphia welcomes more than 40 million visitors annually, and its top attractions include Independence National Historical Park, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell Center, Valley Forge National Historical Park, Philadelphia Zoo, Peddler’s, Village, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rocky Statue and Rocky Steps, and the Reading Terminal Market.
