Titans Play First Home Preseason Game Thursday

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Titans play their first home preseason game at LP Field on Thursday night, and fans will get to see the new improvements to the stadium.

The Titans face off against the Arizona Cardinals in a sold out game at 7 p.m.

The Titans added more than 800 speakers at the stadium, including on the light stands in the upper deck. They also built a new stage under the scoreboard on the south side of the stadium, which is hooked into those speakers.

They also installed brand new HD television screens that are 56 feet high and 156 feet wide.

Also, 12 new elevators will get you to the upper deck. There's also a new area for fans where you can watch other games.

Metro Police have also announced details of a traffic plan for fans coming downtown to watch the game.

Gates to LP Field will open at 5 p.m. Thursday. Stadium parking lots will open at 3 p.m. to Titans fans with parking passes.

At 4:30 p.m., the Woodland Street Bridge will close to regular traffic and be available only to pedestrians and shuttle buses. Downtown workers and other motorists making the commute home will get to their destinations quicker by avoiding the congestion around LP Field.

Fans without LP Field parking passes are urged to save time, find parking in the downtown area, and walk to LP Field or ride an InShuttle Transportation shuttle bus. InShuttle will provide park and ride bus service for this game from the state parking lots at 4th Avenue North & Harrison Street and from 10th Circle North downtown (off Charlotte across from TSU's downtown campus) beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Fans traveling downtown for the game and who normally park in state employee lots on game days will not have access to those lots Thursday evening until 5 p.m., when they are vacated by state workers. Fans parking north of Broadway, and those who use state parking lots, can safely walk across the Woodland Street Bridge from downtown to LP Field. For fans parking along and south of Broadway, the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge will provide safe, enjoyable, and easy access to the stadium.
