Metro Council Approves Funding For LP Field Upgrades

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Metro Council has approved the $25 million bond issuance needed for LP Field improvements.

The improvement plan was introduced in October and approved by the Sports Authority in November.

Bonds will be used for the project, and a new $1 user fee on tickets for events at LP field will help service that debt.  That brings the total user fee on tickets to $3.

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 plan 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 will add high speed elevators that can take fans from the ground to top level in just 20 seconds.

Work on the stadium is planned to begin in January 2012.
