NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Crews have started removing the old seats inside Nissan Stadium as they make way for brand new ones.

Workers began in the 300 level on the west side just a few days ago as they work their way through the entire stadium.

Bob Flynn, Vice President of Facilities and Game Day Operations for the Titans, said the new seats will also be blue and red in color.

Officials said a lot of fans requested to have the old seats but both the Metro Sports Authority and Titans decided not to offer the seats for reuse.

Not only are they the property of Metro-Nashville, but the condition of the seats is reportedly too poor.

Flynn also said concerts at the stadium over the offseason will be “event ready,” which means some old and new seats could be in place for events like the CMA Festival in June.

All of the seats will be replaced in time for the first Titans preseason game in August.

The new seats are just the latest in a series of improvements to Nissan Stadium, which opened in 1999.
