There’s nothing like getting together with your friends or family to watch your favorite football team battle for victory on the field. Being part of the action is so much more exciting than watching from your home. The crowds of people filling the stadium chanting as loud as they can, while dressed in their team’s color, is something football fans look forward to every season. A huge part of this experience is actually the stadium itself and that’s why we have created a list for you, with every NFL Stadium ranked worst to best.
Dignity Health Sports Park — Los Angeles Chargers
Ever since they moved to Los Angeles in 2017, the Chargers have been playing football in a temporary location, a soccer stadium in Carson, California. They have been patiently waiting for their new SoFi stadium located in Inglewood to finish renovations. This is the final season the Chargers will play here and their fans could not be happier.
RingCentral Coliseum — Oakland Raiders
Dating back to the 1960s, the coliseum has been known for being the second smallest stadium in the NFL. The stadium has quite the amount of history too with the Oakland A’s infield play at the beginning of their season, as well as the excellent memories of the Raiders in the 1970s-80s.
Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum — Los Angeles Rams
The newly renovated coliseum does look fantastic but at this point, the NFL deserves better. The Ram’s are expected to play in the new SoFI stadium, also the future home to the Chargers, and should be finished by 2020.
FedEx Field — Washington Redskins
Fans who have followed the Washington Redskins feel strongly that the deteriorated RFK stadium was a better home for them. FedEx field holds 82,000 people and is located nearly five miles from D.C. The facility itself is average but okay. However, many feel that the prices of the tickets are not consistent with the field’s quality.
New Era Field — Buffalo Bills
There are rumors of a new stadium on its way for the Bills and hopefully closer to the downtown Buffalo. Their current stadium has been experiencing renovations but not enough to make it stand out. New Era Field is situated in the south of the city in Orchard Park and resembles a college stadium.
TIAA Bank Field — Jacksonville Jaguars
This has been the home to the Jaguars since their entry to the league in the mid-1990s. It has gone through renovations but still is nothing fancy. Since the early seasons are typically hotter, there are two pool areas which are a great addition.
Hard Rock Stadium — Miami Dolphins
The Hard Rock Stadium has gone through recent renovations to appear more intimate, but unfortunately, it remains the same as always. They have a substantial amount of room for tailgates, but the temperature at the beginning of the season can be pure torture. Also, the Dolphin’s recent downfall has resulted in empty seats and contributes to the overall dull experience in the stadium.
Nissan Stadium — Tennessee Titans
The home of the Titans is most special for its location. The stadium is easily accessed as its near to the action of Nashville. It is a great area for tailgates, but upon entering you will realize that it’s actually less than average and can benefit from a makeover.
Bank of America Stadium — Carolina Panthers
Almost all of the Panther’s seasons have been played in the downtown Charlotte stadium. The stadium is rather simple and allows fans to see the game. Unfortunately, despite its amenities, it is easy for fans to quickly forget their experience there.
FirstEnergy Stadium — Cleveland Browns
There is an increasing amount of people wanting to see the Cleveland Browns in action. Thus, more people are attending games and visiting the stadium. It is modernized but does not offer any unique qualities that bring people in. The reality is nobody wants to watch bad football at a boring stadium. Luckily, they can head over to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for a nice treat.
Paul Brown Stadium — Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals are rivals to the Cleaveland Browns and we will touch on some similarities. Their riverfront home location is pleasant and provides fans with plenty to do before and after the game. Unfortunately, if you are afraid of heights to avoid going to the upper levels. The stadium itself is not super successful and this is in part due to the team’s bad record.
Raymond James Stadium — Tampa Bay Buccaneers
If you can endure the boiling sun of Florida then you will enjoy the Raymond James Stadium. It is not a bad stadium necessarily, and even has a full-on pirate ship in the north end zone!
MetLife Stadium — New York Giants & New York Jets
The MetLife stadium exceeds the Giants stadium and is worth about $1.6 billion. However, the truth is that it is not that much different than any other stadium mention, so why does it cost so much? We don’t have so many critics about it, but we also don’t have anything to boast about either.
Soldier Field — Chicago Bears
This field holds significant history and its location is one of the bests in the NFL. There is, unfortunately, a substantial amount of traffic that occurs near the beginning and end of the game. The stadium does have a good view for fans to see the field.
M&T Bank Stadium — Baltimore Ravens
The Raven’s home is not specifically unique, but it is a comfortable space to enjoy the game. Fans have a great view of the game and the Raven’s winning streak helps with the environment. It is located downtown and easy to get to. It is also close to other entertainment spots like Camden Yards, which is the home if the Orioles.
Gillette Stadium — New England Patriots
The New England Patriots have their home base in an unfamiliar location, in Foxboro, Mass, which is located between Boston and Providence. With the team’s growing success, the stadium is also growing. Today it is is a full-blown entertainment compound with more than enough to do before and after the game. However, upon entering there is still an intimate feel despite all that’s going on around.
Lincoln Financial Field — Philadelphia Eagles
The Lincoln Financial Field has plenty of services offered and seating options for all fan types. The fans have shown overall improved satisfaction with their experience in this new location, but the Philly locals from the foolish behavior, especially to their rivals.
Mercedes-Benz Superdome — New Orleans Saints
Even with Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the old dome of New Orleans remains today. It suffered minor damages and was renovated to be good as new. The newly improved Superdomealso helped move the team to higher levels of achievement, like a Superbowl win in 2009. Today it exists as one o the best home-field advantages in sports history.
Levi’s Stadium — San Francisco 49ers
Those who frequently visit Levi’s stadium would argue that its rankings are too high. It is almost an hour’s distance from San Francisco, and it is extremely difficult to get in and out. It certainly has earned some brownie points with is go green movement like the roof and solar panels. It may motivate other facilities to follow their example.
Ford Field — Detroit Lions
Ford Field is rather underrated when it comes to NFL venues. This indoor stadium is extremely beneficial in months like November and December. Fans can also leisurely walk through the concourses and still watch the excitement on the field.
State Farm Stadium — Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinal’s home is one of our favorites. It has a retractable roof and retractable field since it is used for other sports and entertainment events. Fans always leave with the best experiences!
Empower Field at Mile High — Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos have gained themself a spot in the top 10 best NFL Stadiums. With a backdrop like the Rocky Mountains, fans having the best tailgate experience every time. As of 2019, the Broncos haven’t heard themselves the best reputation, but the stadium itself is worth visiting.
NRG Stadium — Houston Texans
The NRG Stadium has many purposes aside from the NFL. It is enormous and can seat 72,000 comfortably! However, it still keeps up an intimate and comfortable feel.It also has a unique feature that makes it that much more special, its mammoth retractable roof.
Arrowhead Stadium — Kansas City Chiefs
The fans of the Chiefs only care about football and supporting their team. Chief fans make playing in Arrowhead difficult for opponents because of how devoted they are to their team. This is the place to come if you want to watch football next to passionate fans.
Lucas Oil Stadium — Indianapolis Colts
Lucas Oil is one of the largest stadiums in the NFL and offers an overwhelmingly satisfying experience for Colts fans. With its exciting spirit and abundance of seats, everyone leaves happy. They also have never-ending food and drink options. What’s even better are the entertainment options in the surrounding area!
Heinz Field — Pittsburgh Steelers
Hein Field is acknowledged for its excellent location and clear picture of downtown Pittsburg. It is next to the baseball field PNC Park, which is also highly acclaimed. Heinz appears like another world compared to the Three Rivers Stadium.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium — Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons are living it up with their new and improved state-of-the-art 360 video screen and a specialized retractable roof. It offers everything you could imagine for sports fans and ensures a comfortable experience for frequent game goers. They also have decently priced food and drinks, which is always a plus! Building this stadium alone cost more than $1.5 billion.
U.S. Bank Stadium — Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings impressively progressed from playing at the worst sports stadium to now one of the best. U.S. bank was worth spending the $1 billion. It offers everything that fans could imagine and is a great home-field advantage for the Vikings. Something truly unique is seeing how the natural light manifests from the roof and walls.
AT&T Stadium — Dallas Cowboys
Things in Texas typically follow the motto “go big or go home” and given that Cowboys are owned by Jerry Jones, we expect this to apply to them as well. The stadium seats a whopping 80,000 and holds a video screen that covers the entire field. Whether you love the cowboys or not, this is a sight worth seeing.
CenturyLink Field — Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks have the best advantage with the stadium in CenturyLink. Fans are certainly rowdy and opposing teams have something to fear. The area is structured in a unique clam shape, that manages to handle noise control.
Lambeau Field — Green Bay Packers
This field is one to add to your bucket list if it is not there already. It is the same company as Fenway Park and has gone through incredible renovations both inside and outside. However, Lambeau still has no lost its personality.
