New, domed $2.2 billion Titans stadium could be ready for 2026 season

USA TODAY Sports

The Titans are on track for a new stadium. It will be expensive. And it will have a roof. Which undoubtedly means it will host at least one Super Bowl.

Via the Tennessean, a new domed stadium for the Titans could open by 2026, and it could cost up to $2.2 billion.

The stadium would take 31 months to build, and it would replace Nissan Stadium, the open-air venue at which the Titans have played since 1999.

The facility would be funded by state and local taxpayer dollars, with the former coming in the form of bonds and the latter potentially financed by a hotel/motel tax. The Titans and the league would kick in roughly $750 million.

And a Super Bowl would likely end up being played in Nashville, as part of the quid pro quo that plays out when significant public money is devoted to a new stadium.

    You mean a new DOMED stadium.

  2. Just PLEASE don’t do it like Dallas. It’s terrible. Retractable roof, sometimes open sometimes closed, NFL rules on when it can be closed, on day games half the field brings in too much light and players have the sun in their eyes, meanwhile half of the field is dark and shadowy. PLEASE, if it’s gonna be a dome, make it a true dome like Lions, Falcons, Saints, etc.

  3. Will the league and it’s owners kick anything back to the taxpayer for financing this private business? We all know the answer to that.

  4. So from now on, teams will be insisting on new stadiums every 25 years? The city of Oakland still holds $86 million in debt on the upgrade they made to the Coliseum back in 1996. Insane.

  5. Domes are the worst for football stadiums. Baseball – yes. Football is meant for the elements.

    Yes, the owners supply the team and corporation. The state supplies the building that will bring it billions of dollars in tax revenue over the next 20 years. AS they should – the owner doesnt see any of that tax money.

  7. Yep, housing and cost of living keep going up, the team makes billions and now the citizens will foot most of the bill … Way to go Nashville !

    Cowboys stadium is a bit southwest/northeast. More or less East to West/ So the right southern quadrant is blinding, as the sun sets. Serious blunder. Who signed off on that?

    Giants/Jets old and new stadium is almost North/South. A tad NW/SE. You freeze on on the west side as the sun sets but at least the players don’t have the sun in their eyes.

  9. Nytro – the mismanagement of funds in Oakland should be a cautionary tale, not an example of why progress should be halted.

  10. These new fangled stadiums don’t last VERY long ,so Start saving now Tennessee for your new new stadium in 2046.

  11. From a purist football sense I hate dome stadiums but if a team plays in the midwest or northeast it kind of makes sense to have one. With the price tags now routinely exceeding $1 billion dollars and half of it or more now paid with public money, I think the days of hosting 8 or 9 football games are over. To make it worth the public investment then you should want as many events held there as possible year around. Hotels, restaurants, jobs, all that stuff has to be taken into consideration if throwing taxpayer money at such a plan to build a new stadium. Would be different if the owners ponied up their own money but they’ve caught on, they don’t have to.

  12. The “worthless” Packer stock sales keeps looking better and better to taxpayers that aren’t interested in sports. They don’t tear down and build new schools after twenty-two years, do they? No, they don’t.

  13. Great for the Dolphins when they come play in December, 1 less freezing stadium to play in

  14. Sofi stadium had an estimated cost of just under $2bil, the actual cost was over $5.5bil!

    I’ve neve in my 60+yrs seen and NFL stadium come in under or on budget, they all run over!

  15. 22 years is all a stadium (Nissan Stadium) can last these days? I know they say “They don’t build them like they used to.” with most products, but one would think construction today is much more elite than years past. How long did the original famous stadiums stay in good shape for hosting events? I just don’t understand how these stadiums can possibly need to be replaced so quickly, especially at the cost they’re spending on them. It just makes no sense (to me anyway), regardless of who’s paying for them.
