Sports Authority Approves $25M Plan For LP Field

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On Monday, the Sports Authority in Nashville voted to approve a $25 million plan to make improvements to LP Field.

The plan will still have to go before Metro Council because the Titans rent the stadium from the city of Nashville.

The Tennessee Titans said LP Field is falling behind other stadiums around the country and needs to keep up.

The improvements, which include new score boards and elevators, were introduced last month.

The Titans said they want to dramatically improve the experience for fans. The plan is to install some 800 new speakers around the stadium, which will be a major improvement in sound quality not only for games but for concerts as well. 

They also want to replace the current scoreboard, with two huge high definition scoreboards that are four times as big as the present ones. 

They are looking to make changes to the building itself by converting unused storage space to a fan hospitality area.  They also want to add high speed elevators that can take fans from the ground to top level in just 20 seconds. 

The improvements won't be paid by tax dollars, but by $2 dollar user fees that are already added to the cost of every ticket.

The Titans are also looking to increase that user fee by $1 dollar for future improvements.

If the Sports Authority approves the plan, it will still have to go before Metro Council because the Titans rent the stadium from the city of Nashville.

Once approved, some of the work could start in early January.
