A Tennessee Titans stadium tax fund is projected to generate nearly $3 billion over 34 years.
The fund is scheduled to pay for Nashville revenue bonds on the proposed $2.1 billion Titans stadium, collecting $2.9 billion through 2056, according to Metro Nashville — not including the state’s $500 million commitment.
The tax fund is set to pay off $760 million in revenue bonds from the Metro Nashville Sports Authority and will be used toward a capital improvements fund for stadium work in the future.
