NFL Disney World: Massive Los Angeles Stadium Underway

The Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers will both play in the brand new Los Angeles stadium once its construction is complete.

 

NFL returns to the City of Angels

Los Angeles is one of the United States’ most recognizable and populated areas. Home to two NBA, two MLB, one MLS, and one NHL franchise, not to mention the fervent rivalry between local university athletic programs UCLA and USC, it’s safe to say that L.A. is a great sports city. However, since 1994, LA has lacked professional football. This is changing in a big way; starting this upcoming 2017 NFL season, the Chargers will join the newly relocated Los Angeles Rams to bring two NFL franchises to the greater Los Angeles Area. The Bolts were founded in Los Angeles in 1960 before heading south to San Diego the following season.

Filling the Stadiums

Will Los Angeles be able to support not one, but two football franchises? Last season, the Rams were welcomed back with open arms, selling out 70,000 season tickets and drawing a crowd of over 91,000 to their season opener at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Rams’ evaluation jumped from $1.45B to $2.9B after moving, good for 3rd highest in the NFL behind the Cowboys and Patriots. The Los Angeles Chargers will move into the StubHub Center, home of the LA Galaxy. At a capacity of 30,000, it is well below the NFL’s required minimum of 50,000. However, this location is temporary, as both the Rams and Chargers will move into the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, which is currently under construction in Inglewood, for the 2020 NFL season. 

Los Angeles Stadium Quick Facts

  • 298 acres, 3.5 times the size of Disneyland
  • Expected to hold 70,240 seats, plus 25,000 in standing room only tickets behind end zones
  • 260 luxury suites, 7 different varieties
  • Joins MetLife Stadium (home of the NY Giants   and NY Jets) as the only stadiums that are shared by two NFL franchises
  • Privately funded, expected cost of $2.6B is over $1 billion more than next most costly stadium in the world (MetLife)
  • Will host Super Bowl LVI in 2022
  • 19-acre transparent canopy to cover stadium

In addition to battling for and receiving NFL franchises, Los Angeles will host the summer Olympics in 2028. The Los Angeles Stadium is expected to host the Opening Ceremony, soccer, and archery events.

Though the stadium is several years from being completed, the first 125 luxury suites have already been marketed to potential leaseholders. If you simply cannot wait, you can purchase a suite for the Los Angeles Rams at Memorial Coliseum or the Los Angeles Chargers at the StubHub Center with Suite Experience Group today.

A New Nest for the High-Flying Falcons

Fresh off a trip to the Super Bowl, the Falcons couldn’t have chosen a better time to move into their new home, Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Falcon’s owner Arthur Blank set very high expectations for his team’s brand new stadium and boy did he deliver. The $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium will feature unparalleled city views, an upgraded fan experience, and a breathtaking retractable roof. With its pulsating music and lights, the energy of Mercedes-Benz will bring a bright beating heart to the center of Atlanta.

As part of our series detailing the sports venues being unveiled in the next year, we wanted to give Falcons fans a little taste of their incredible new stadium. Mercedes-Benz Stadium should more than console Falcons fans still bitter about their Super Bowl loss as it looks to be the new standard for all other stadiums in both the NFL and MLS.

 

Premium Seating

Mercedes-Benz Stadium Quick Facts

Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta offers fan friendly pricing and eco-friendly technology.


For those fans looking for a more premium experience, Mercedes-Benz Stadium will have plenty of high-quality game experiences for their VIP guests. With 7,500 club seats, a suite level stretching from endzone to endzone, and over 100,000 square feet of premium clubs and lounges, including the Champions Lounge located behind the Falcon’s bench. Atlanta’s new NFL home is truly outfitted to give guests a top-of-the-line gameday experience.

 

Suite Options

Mercedes-Benz Stadium will offer two suite levels for fans that want to host clients or entertain friends in a suite. The Touchdown Suites are located on the field level, can host up to 22 guests, and are outfitted with a wet bar, comfortable theater-style seating and private restrooms in every suite. Each suite is decked out with all the tech that guests could want; HD TV’s with access to NFL Sunday Ticket and a local Wi-Fi network to give a full suite of guests internet access.

The Franchise Suites, which are located on the suite level, offer seating for between 14 and 22 guests. These suites are furnished with top of the line seating and offer a bird’s eye view of the action in your own comfortable climate controlled space. All suites come with a delicious catering menu, a full offering of beer, wine and spirits, and dedicated suite attendant to take care of your every need. With over 90 suites available at opening, there are plenty of options to take your gameday experience to the next level.

 

 

Iconic Roof and Halo Video Board

If fans want to see what really makes Mercedes-Benz Stadium the crown jewel of Atlanta, all fans have to do is look up. The stadium’s “360-degree Halo” video board is the largest in professional sports. The 63,000 square-foot screen is located right below the retractable roof’s opening providing fans ways to view the score, the time and recent highlights from any angle. To top it off, the stadium’s retractable roof, which was inspired by the Oculus of the Roman Pantheon, opens and closes in a unique way that is truly indescribable. Check out the video below for a fly-over of the stadium that demonstrates how the roof operates.

 

 

When Arthur Blank set out to build a stadium that was both environmentally conscious and fan-focused, I’m not sure even he knew how gorgeous his team’s new home venue would be. When Mercedes-Benz Stadium is finally opened on July 30th, NFL and MLS fans across the country will be very jealous of Atlanta’s iconic new home venue.

Sports fans should stay tuned to the Suite Experience Group’s Blog as the year progresses. We will be examining all of the new arenas opening up around the NHL, NFL, MLB and NBA this year. The next venue in our series will be Little Caesar’s Arena, which opens in 2017 and will be shared by the Detroit Pistons and Red Wings.

As always, if you are interested in purchasing a luxury suite please contact us through our website.
