Eagles planning major upgrades to the Linc
Lincoln Financial Field could see some big changes within the next two off-seasons. Sports Business Journal
's Don Muret reports the Eagles are planning some major enhancements to the Linc, and total upgrades could be between $60 million and $100 million.
Eagles president Don Smolenski on Tuesday was at FDR Park in Philadelphia, where the Birds plan to help rebuild a playground
that was vandalized over the weekend, and was asked about the renovation plans.
"We're still in that planning process," Smolenski said. "It's very early. We've been engaged with it for several months now. We know there's a long way to go."
Potential changes include new field level boxes, improved video technology, renovations to clubs on the east and west sides and gate entry upgrades.
"Some of the ideas we are looking at are ideas from other venues," Smolenski said. "We've reached out to fans as well."
The Linc was built by the team of Turner Construction, Keating Building and McKissack Group for a cost of $512 million in 2001.
