In the spring of 2010, MetLife Stadium opened its doors as the first building owned and operated by two iconic NFL franchises, the New York Jets and New York Football Giants. This $1.60 billion groundbreaking project, 100% privately funded and built by both teams, opened four months ahead of schedule and on budget.
Each year, MetLife Stadium hosts 20 NFL games (twice as many as any other NFL Stadium), major concerts and entertainment events, college sporting events, international soccer matches, motor sports, and family shows. Since opening, the Stadium tops the annual charts, being named the Top Grossing Stadium in the World!
The 2.1 million square foot facility was constructed with a neutral backdrop, allowing the Stadium to transform into a home field for the home team, be it college or professional. Everything in the building was designed with this transformation in mind.
