Lincoln Financial Field
The Eagles’ Nest
Lincoln Financial Field, the official home of the Philadelphia Eagles, opened to the public in 2003 and has been garnering praise ever since.
The 68,532-seat, $512 million stadium, also known as ‘the Linc’, features extra-wide concourses, three massive LED video displays, over 300 concession stands and both luxury and club seating areas.
Boasting incredible sightlines, with a majority of seats along the sidelines, Lincoln Financial Field is a football fan’s dream. The stadium also serves as the perfect venue for soccer, college football and concerts from some of the top acts in the world.
Not Just Football
The stadium opened in August 2003 with a soccer match between hugely popular Manchester United and FC Barcelona. Since then, it has hosted FIFA Women’s World Cup matches, the U.S. National vs. Turkey and the Philadelphia Union.
Bruce Springsteen held three sold-out first rock concerts at the Linc in 2003 and U2 dazzled the crowd with the 360 Tour in July 2011.
With over 68,000 hungry fans to feed, Lincoln Financial serves up some of the top local favorites with a few specialties of their own.
You won’t have any problems finding a cheesesteak, with venerable stands like Tony Luke’s and Rick’s Steaks. If you want some crab fries on the side, Chickie’s & Pete’s has you covered with 13 locations in the stadium.
Other Philly favorites on hand include the Schmitter from McNally’s Tavern, hoagies from Planet Hoagie, Johnson’s Popcorn, Federal Pretzels and Tastykakes.
Lincoln Financial Field has also been named the most vetegarian-friendly NFL stadium with a wealth of meat-free options including veggie wraps, veggie steak sandwiches, veggie hotdogs and veggie burgers. Gluten-free hot dogs and beer are also available.
Located at the north end of the Lincoln Financial Field, HeadHouse Plaza is 100,000-square-feet devoted to Eagles’ fans. Get your gear at the team shop, grab a bite to eat, head to the Miller Lite Tailgate Zoon or check out the family-friendly Interactive Zone full of games and entertainment for kids and adults.
The HeadHouse features memories of Eagles past seasons, including a visual timeline of past seasons and defining moments. The stand alone building is open all year long and contains the Eagles ticket office, pro shop and Red Zone Lounge and Suites.
For those driving into the city, Lincoln Financial Field is easily accessible from I-95 and I-76. Parking is plentiful, with over 22,000 spots available at $25 for cars and $50 for oversized vehicles.
The quickest way to Lincoln Financial Field is south along the SEPTA Broad Street Subway Line. Exit at the last southbound stop, Pattison Avenue. If games end after midnight, shuttle buses operating on Broad Street will replace subway trains.
