Drafting Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota with the second pick in April's draft has even Tennessee Titans ticket buyers newfound optimism for the upcoming 2015 season. The Oregon Ducks quarterback is one of those rare talents who can transform a franchise overnight. Big things are happening at Nissan Stadium this year.
Situated on the east bank of the Cumberland River, across from downtown Nashville, Nissan Stadium is one of the most scenic and architecturally beautiful stadiums in the National Football League. Opening its doors in 1999, this 69,000+ seater has all the charm and chutzpah of the Music City that it calls home. Tennessee fried food and BBQ adorns its menus and there Bourbon whiskey on the liquor list.
Nissan Stadium is also one of the best places to see a football game because the building was designed as a concert venue in addition to a pigskin palace. That means the sight lines and acoustics of every seat in the house is topnotch. The only thing Nashville residents love more than their Titans is country music, after all. And, unlike many stadiums that are situated on the outskirts of their respective metropolitan areas, Nissan Stadium truly is in the heart of downtown Nashville, meaning there is a near-limitless amount of destination bars, shops, restaurants, and clubs to call your own both before and after the game.
Ken Whisenhunt and the rest of the Titans are looking for a bounce back year in 2015. Get your hands on some Nissan Stadium tickets today to cheer them as they go.
