The lovely MetLife Stadium is part of the Meadowlands Sports Complex in New Jersey and it’s the home of the New York Giants and  New York Jets. It is at the moment the most expensive stadium in the world (costing around 1.6 billion dollars) and it’s also the largest stadiums in the NFL in terms of permanent seating capacity, being built by the two teams through private funds.

The exterior is designed to change colors according to the team playing, an idea that was first introduced by Allianz Arena from Munich. So changing the looks of the stadium is very easy and can be done with haste. The stadium is for now without a roof, due to some funding problems, and this sets it apart from the regular NFL venues.

The louvers and adjacent hanging system have been made by Overgaard Ltd. and Architectural Wall Systems. The stadium is also equipped with twenty pylons with LEDs made by Daktronics that display the game and main events with a high definition quality.

It can host up to 82566 persons and has 218 luxury suites and with so much room it will be the host of the Super Bowl XLVIII in the second of February 2014!
