|New NFL Stadiums with Super Bowl Dreams
The NFL has 2 planned new stadiums coming in the next few
years that the plans are now final. They are the new Dallas
Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX and the Indianapolis Colt's
Lucas Oil Field. The Colt's stadium will open in 2008, while the
Cowboys stadium will open the following season.
Having a new stadium in a warm weather stadium is almost a
guaranteed ticket to host a Super Bowl. Shortly after the plans
were finalized, Dallas was awarded Super Bowl XLV. Having
100,000 seats was a major factor in getting a Super Bowl so
early. The NFL is very excited about having 30,000 additional
tickets to sell as opposed to recent Super Bowls.
Lucas Oil Field is lobbying for a Super Bowl, but the city
infrastructure has been the biggest liability in getting the Super
Bowl to Indianapolis. They fall well short of the minimum hotel
room requirement, and the NFL does not was another
embarrassment like Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville was not ready for a Super Bowl, and it showed. But
that will not stop the Colt's from applying to host Super Bowl
Some cities are in desperate need of new stadiums to keep their team, or in LA's case
- to receive a team. Here is the latest news on these cities.

as rowdy as college stadiums, but there
are some that can compete with even SEC
Rowdiest NFL Stadiums of 2007
1. The RCA Dome
The defending NFL champs have been
accused of pumping in sound to the Dome
to increase the difficulty of opponents to
play. Colts are expecting to go 8-0 at
home this year, but have a tough
November match-up with the Patriots.
2. Qwest Field
Home of the NFL 12th man, fans in the
bird cage rock Qwest Field and give their
Seahawks one of the best home field
advantages in the game.
|Los Angeles is set to get a NFL team by 2010. One option for a stadium to
field their NFL team is the LA Memorial Coliseum. Major renovations will be
needed. The Coliseum is a cool stadium, but didn't it already fail with the
Raiders, what's different this time?
