The Tennessee Titans have officially released new 3D renderings of their plans for their new $2.1 billion stadium.
Last week, the Titans and Nashville Mayor John Cooper made an announcement. They had come to an agreement to tear down the current Nissan Stadium and replace it with a new, state-of-the-art facility.
This move honors an agreement between the Titans and the city of Nashville that the football team would play in a high-quality stadium through 2039.

About the New Stadium
The deal proposes for the stadium to be constructed east of its current location, just a bit closer to I-4.
The rendering of the 1.7 million square foot stadium looks incredible. It features outdoor terraces, a 12,000 square foot space for community events, and a beautiful clear, circular roof. The cover would protect from weather but would still allow natural light to fill the stadium.
The new Titans stadium rendering design claims to hold 60,000 people, making it one of the smaller stadiums in the NFL. But this is intentional. The Titans aim for a modern approach to in-person football experiences, providing experiences from luxury boxes to standing-room only tickets to game-long tailgate options.
The Council’s Approval
However, the city council hasn’t approved the stadium yet. Although Mayor Cooper and the Titans are in agreement, Nashville’s 40 person council still needs to review the plans and vote it into action.
If passed, it would be the biggest project in Nashville city history. It would also be the largest amount of public finances used on a stadium in the United States to date. Because of that, some council members expressed skepticism and plan to be highly deliberate with the proceedings.
