Alltel Stadium

Football is a passion for Jacksonville and nowhere is that more evident than at ALLTEL Stadium.
Jacksonville has one of the largest stadiums in the NFL and the biggest capacity of any stadium in the current rotation of Super Bowl cities.

Situated on 10 acres, ALLTEL Stadium is located in downtown Jacksonville inside the Sports and Entertainment Complex, a stone’s throw away from the sparkling St. Johns River. In addition to being centrally located, Jacksonville’s stadium is a convenient 20- minute drive from Jacksonville International Airport.
The stadium features 76,877 permanent seats equipped with backs and arm rests, including approximately 10,000 club seats and 85 luxury suites. Approximately 75 percent of the seats are located on the sides, with just 25 percent behind the end zones.
Temporary seating may be added as needed in the south end zone, increasing capacity to 82,000 seats. The football playing field is 53.3 yards wide by 120 yards in length and has a natural grass playing surface.

Additionally, there is a practice area, which is 160 yards by 360 yards and consists of two natural grass athletic fields. The practice fields are sized for current NFL standards and are located adjacent to the football stadium.
Renovations totaling $40 million were completed just before the start of the 2003-04 football season. New stadium features include a Terrace Suite with 700 outdoor seats. The new Terrace Suite sits atop the south end zone, with a 10,000 square foot veranda, and a 19,000 square foot restaurant-style lounge.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic vistas of the playing field on one side and the St. Johns River on the other.
Renovations also include a new 15,000-square-foot sports bar called the Budweiser BUD ZONE that is open to the field and features a state-of-the-art audio-visual system.
Outside the stadium, 100-foot escalators sweep fans into the 82,000-seat stadium, a sporting facility like no other in the country.
