List of National Football League stadiums

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of current National Football League stadiums, sorted by how many people it holds, their locations, their first year of usage and home teams.

The New York Giants and New York Jets share a stadium (MetLife Stadium), thus there are only 31 NFL stadiums.[1]

The NFL uses several other stadiums on a regular basis in addition to the teams' designated regular home sites. The Jacksonville Jaguars currently have a agreement to play one regular season home game per year at Wembley Stadium in London, England, as part of the NFL International Series through 2020.

Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio, is the location of the annual exhibition Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, and Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, is usually the location of the Pro Bowl.

The New York Giants and New York Jets MetLife Stadium is the largest stadium in the NFL by its regular seating capacity. The Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium can expand past that of MetLife Stadium by means of using standing-room and temporary seating, which makes AT&T Stadium the only NFL stadium capable of holding 100,000 or more spectators, though it normally only seats 80,000. The smallest permanent NFL stadium is Soldier Field, the home of the Chicago Bears. In the 2015 season, the smallest was TCF Bank Stadium, temporary home of the Minnesota Vikings while the team's former home, the Metrodome, was replaced on-site by U.S. Bank Stadium.
