U.S. Bank Stadium’s iconic black zinc panels have been causing moisture problems since its opening in 2016. Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, contractor Mortenson and seven firms associated with its design and construction have reached a mediated settlement on repairs for its exterior enclosure, agreeing to install new panels with extra seals in order to address these issues.
Nissan CEO Burke Nihill has described renovation costs as prohibitively expensive; adding roof costs would significantly raise them further, yet could save maintenance expenses in the long run, according to him.
Walter P Moore’s engineering team recently performed a visual evaluation of Nashville’s Titans Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans since 1999 and host to many concerts and events.

Nissan Stadium seating arrangements have been carefully constructed with all fans in mind. A lower bowl surrounds the field while club and upper levels are split into dual towers along each sideline – these latter two levels contain press boxes as well as luxury suites on an upper level.
Furthermore, four open air concourses behind each endzone feature concessions and picnic tables; lower endzone sections offer fans a clear head-on view of video boards without moving their heads excessively, and are close to team benches for added convenience.
Whoever’s searching for an economical premium seat should consider club level corner seats as these offer excellent views while being less costly than other premium options. In addition, they are closer to entry tunnels than other seats within the stadium.

Guests with wheelchairs are eligible to obtain complimentary tickets at any service window; additionally there is limited wheelchair availability that guests may borrow by showing a valid driver’s license at Fan Services window behind Section 124.
