Eagles considering improvements to stadium

The Philadelphia Eagles are looking into improving their 10-year-old stadium.  

Eagles President Don Smolenski says members of the organization has been reviewing newer stadiums to see what they would do to their own home turf.

“Concepts related to seatings, related to amenities, fan experience, it’s the whole host from A to Z,” Smolenski said. “We’re really just looking at the entire experience, talking to fans to get their input and their feedback.”

Smolenski says nothing is definite yet for the Lincoln Financial Field stadium.

“People are very happy, and we are trying to make them happier — the sight lines in the building, the video boards, all of that provides such an intimate experience and we’re just trying to keep it fresh, keep it on the leading edge,” he said.

There is also no budget for renovations to “The Linc.”

However, Mayor Michael Nutter said Tuesday that even though the city owns the stadium, any renovation cost will be completely paid for by the Eagles.
