Titans’ Historic New $2.1B Stadium One Step Closer to Reality

The Tennessee Titans are one step closer to a new $2.1 billion domed stadium in Nashville.

At around midnight on Wednesday, the city council voted 25-11 to send the proposal to a final vote, according to The Tennessean. 

The project would be the most expensive public fund ever for an NFL stadium.

  • About $1.26 billion in public money would go toward the new stadium — more than half the cost of the entire project.
  • Loans from the NFL, sales, and team funds would cover the rest of the $840 million needed to complete the stadium.

The blueprint, released in October 2022, shows a 1.7-million-square-foot building with 60,000 seats and a retractable dome. The Titans and the city of Nashville want the stadium to be able to compete for top sporting events like Final Fours and Super Bowls.

The final vote will take place on April 25, during a meeting in which about four hours of debate could take place between supporters and opponents of the project. 

If approved, the stadium wouldn’t be slated to open until 2026 at the earliest.
