NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A new look is coming to Nissan Stadium along the Cumberland River in downtown Nashville.
“It’s been so gray from the outside,” said Titans Vice President of Facilities Bob Flynn, “so we are giving it more color.”
Bright red paint is being added to ramps, entrances and signage.
While those touches are designed to add to the visual of the nearly 20-year-old facility, fans and those passing by will soon be able to see some major adjustments for comfort as well.
The process of removing and replacing all of the stadium’s nearly 70,000 seats will be underway within weeks, or even days.
The seat project will occur in tandem with the replacement of the facilities expansion joints which have aged to a point where there were leaks from upper to lower decks during heavy rains.
The changes come as the Titans prepare for more non-team events at the stadium.
Coming up on March 6 is the SheBelieves Cup involving the U.S. women’s national soccer team along with France, Germany and England.
“It involves four of the five top women’s soccer teams in the world,” says the Titan’s Flynn. “And we have already sold 14,000 tickets, but aim for 20-30,000 by the time the event is held.”
Flynn says the seat replacement will not interfere with the women’s soccer matches since it begins in one of the upper decks which would not be used during the March event.
