The NFL

An NFL match at the new stadium

Dedicated pitch and facilities

The new stadium has been designed for multi-use, including a structurally engineered fully retractable pitch – the first for any stadium in the UK – to ensure that the football playing surface is always in peak condition.

Underneath the grass field will be a synthetic grass surface that would be used for NFL games and other events.  This innovative solution also allows greater flexibility in the scheduling of games, reducing the set up time required to prepare the ground for other events.

The seating bowl has also been designed to enable excellent sightlines to be achieved for the different formats of football and the NFL, without having to screen off rows of seats at the front of the lower tier, maintaining an excellent atmosphere for all sports and events. 

Dedicated facilities for the NFL – including a home locker room and media suite – are also provided such that the Club's facilities are never compromised by the need to cater for other uses. 

The NFL is well-known for providing a great match day experience which starts well before the action on the pitch.  A key feature of this is the Tailgate parties, which take place at selected venues close by the stadium and in surrounding open areas.

Typically these include:

    • Appearances from NFL legends
    • Performances from team cheerleaders
    • Interactive NFL activities
    • A selection of the best American-style food

Visitors and local residents will be able to engage in these vibrant activities and they will bring added economic benefits to the area.
