The Lincoln Financial Field located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was designed by the NBBJ architectural practice in collaboration with Agroos Lovera Architects in 2001 and it is now the home of the Philadelphia Eagles.

The stadium has a capacity of 68532 seats and it replaced the Veterans Stadium as the home stadium of the Eagles offering a larger number of luxury and wheelchair accessible seats and services better suited to contemporary standards.

There are several LED video displays included in the design and over 624 feet of ribbon board. The stadium hosts soccer games as well and it was the host of the NCAA lacrosse national championship.

The naming rights for the stadium were sold to the Lincoln Financial Group in 2002 for 139.6 million dollars for 21 years and the rest of the construction funds were raised through the sale of the Stadium Builder’s Licenses to the season ticket holders of the Eagles.
