MetLife Stadium

1 MetLife Stadium Dr, East Rutherford, NJ 07073

The MetLife Stadium is a sports stadium located in the Meadowlands at the MetLife Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, United States. It is the home of the New York Jets and New York Giants of the National Football League.

In the spring of 2010, MetLife Stadium opened its doors as the first building owned and operated by two iconic NFL franchises, the New York Jets and New York Football Giants. This $1.60 billion groundbreaking project, 100% privately funded and built by both teams, opened four months ahead of schedule and on budget.

Each year, MetLife Stadium hosts 20 NFL games (twice as many as any other NFL Stadium), major concerts and entertainment events, college sporting events, international soccer matches, motor sports, and family shows. Since opening, the Stadium tops the annual charts, being named the Top Grossing Stadium in the World!

The 2.1 million square foot facility was constructed with a neutral backdrop, allowing the Stadium to transform into a home field for the home team, be it college or professional. Everything in the building was designed with this transformation in mind. From the first removable endzones, to the flagpole banners and signs, all team-specific elements are switched out on a game by game basis to reflect the respective home team. Each week during the NFL season, the Stadium's exterior uplighting and flagship team merchandise store are also transformed from Jets Green to Giants Blue and back again, bathing the building in hues of the upcoming home team.
