The a beautiful pearl in the otherwise sprawling swamps of the New Jersey Meadowlands, MetLife Stadium (Formerly New Meadowlands Stadium) is one of the NFL's newest, most exciting, and most recognizable venues. Scoring a New York Giants ticket a New York Jets ticket at this stadium is consistently one of the hottest buys of any NFL season.
The only stadium (for now) to host two franchises, MetLife has been the home to the New York Giants and New York Jets since 2010. Coming to completion at a 1.6 billion dollar price tag, it's the most expensive sports stadium on U.S. soil, and it looks every bit the part.
Boasting a sleek, outer skin of bright silver aluminum, MetLife absolutely embodies the high-fashioned, trendy, innovative aesthetic of the New York metro area. It would look right at home beside similar area landmarks like the Chyrsler Building and One World Trade Center.
Despite being the second-largest venue in the NFL by capacity, MetLife has none of the poor sight lines one would associate with a colossal stadium. In fact, it's lower bowl actually is renowned for having the best sight lines possible - the front rows are just 46 feet from the sideline, by far the closest view any NFL stadium will give you.
Stadium amenities are diverse and delicious but they sure aren't always cheap. And navigating traffic before and after game time can be a little congested. But this is the Big Apple we're talking about, after all. Being in the thick of it all is the feature, not a glitch.
And in addition to some excellent Giants and Jets games, MetLife is a cultural hub outside of the world of New York football. In just five short years it's been home to a Super Bowl, international soccer, and a host of musical legends like Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Jay Z, and Beyonce.
