What to expect in 2017 from the NFL’s newest stadium
In his first full year in office, President Donald Trump is expected to build a massive new NFL stadium.
It’ll cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.7 billion.
But, there’s no denying the scope of the task ahead.
That’s why we decided to look at the cost of a stadium, and how much it’ll cost over the course of the 10 years that it’s expected to be open.
The cost of stadium construction and upkeep The construction of the new NFL stadiums has been on the rise for decades.
The league has been investing heavily in stadium upgrades since 2000, when the New York Giants completed their first NFL stadium, in Arlington, Texas.
The NFL has also spent millions of dollars in the past decade to modernize aging stadiums, such as the new San Diego stadium that opened in 2020.
While the league has had a clear path toward completing all of the stadium projects it had originally planned for, its expansion plans in recent years have slowed down.
That has led to a sharp slowdown in construction of new stadiums, with only five stadiums completed since 2010.
The biggest reason for the slowdown is that many of the existing stadiums were not built to their full potential.
Some of those were built before the current league-imposed construction limits were enforced in 2015, when all stadiums were required to be at least 18,000 seats deep.
That means many of these stadiums could not accommodate as many fans as they should have been.
This was a major issue when the NFL played its first preseason games in 2005, when seats were typically limited to just 500.
That led to the most severe shortage of seats in recent memory, with a number of teams being forced to move to smaller, more intimate stadiums.
And with the league having to expand its home field in the 2020s, there simply wasn’t room for more seating.
As a result, a number teams were forced to sell their games at their own stadiums, including the Oakland Raiders, who have moved their entire home games to Levi’s Stadium.
Meanwhile, other teams, such a Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals, were forced into the “locker room” by the NFL, which decided to close its locker rooms and strip-searches players at a lower level than was permitted in previous years.
The end result was a drop in attendance, with fans leaving the stadiums for the local bars and clubs.
And this wasn’t just a team issue either.
A recent study by the Sports Business Journal found that the NFL has the most hostile fan base in the world, with 49.5 percent of NFL fans saying they wouldn’t leave an NFL game to attend a different sports event.
So how much will the stadium cost?
To put the total cost of building a new stadium in perspective, the stadium that Trump is supposed to open in 2021 is estimated to cost around $1 billion.
That figure includes the cost to build all of its buildings, plus an estimated $2 billion to renovate existing stadiums, which includes the addition of additional suites, locker rooms, concessions and more.
That total includes an estimated cost to refurbish the existing facilities.
As the NFL expands, it will likely also add more amenities to the stadiums, but the total total cost will still be higher than many stadiums that are currently used.
That includes an additional $1 million to expand the concourse area that was previously used to accommodate the NFL games, according to the Associated Press.
There’s no guarantee that the additional amenities will be able to keep up with the demand, though.
Many of the current stadiums, for instance, have been struggling to keep their fans coming.
A new NFL team will probably have a harder time keeping fans coming than a team like the Minnesota Vikings.
The Vikings, for example, have had a rough start to their new stadium, but it’s been a pretty good start for them.
Minnesota’s stadium is built to accommodate two teams, the Minnesota-St. Paul Vikings and the Minnesota St. Lynx, and both teams are averaging a crowd of over 40,000 fans per game.
In 2017, the Vikings averaged over 26,000 per game, which is about what a new Vikings stadium could comfortably seat.
That number is expected drop significantly in 2019, and by 2020, it could be below 20,000.
So if a new NFL franchise is able to attract more fans, how will the cost compare to what teams in the old-school NFL could afford?
According to the AP, the average ticket price for a game in 2017 is $99.50, which would make the new stadium’s cost around three times that of a game played in the 1960s, 70s, or 80s.
That would put it at a whopping $1,092 per game in 2021, the cheapest of the 17 stadiums expected to open this year.
That said, there are some caveats to the study, which only included teams with full-time teams and full-season games.
For instance, the study excluded
