Met Life Stadium
MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Jets and New York Football Giants, is the number one stadium in the world. This 82,500 seat stadium, one of the largest in the National Football League, sets the standard for venue excellence with state-of-the-art technology, comfort and amenities. The only active venue to serve as the home stadium for two NFL teams, MetLife Stadium hosts 20 NFL games per season, more than any other Stadium.
MetLife Stadium hosts the World’s Biggest Events, on the World’s Biggest Stage. Major events hosted at the stadium include Super Bowl XLVIII, WrestleMania, CONCACAF Gold Cup Quarterfinals, U2, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, and the Copa America Centenario (3 matches, including the Final).
MetLife Stadium tops the industry charts annually since opening (April 10, 2010). The Stadium is ranked the #1 Highest Grossing Stadium in the world for non-NFL events in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 by Billboard Magazine; #1 in the U.S. in 2011. In 2011 MetLife Stadium was ranked No. 1 for safety by Security magazine’s “Security 500” in the Arenas/Stadiums/Leagues/Entertainment division.
The 2.1 million square foot facility was constructed with a neutral backdrop, allowing the Stadium to transform into a home field for the home team, be it college or professional. Everything in the building was designed with this transformation in mind. From the first removable endzones, to the flagpole banners and signs, all team-specific elements are switched out on a game by game basis to reflect the respective home team. Each week during the NFL season, the Stadium’s exterior uplighting and flagship team merchandise store are also transformed from Jets Green to Giants Blue and back again, bathing the building in hues of the upcoming home team.
