Nashville’s LP Field is well on its way to final approval for improvements to the arena, which is home field for the Tennessee Titans, who say the enhancements are needed. The improvements were approved by the Metro Sports Authority and are now pending on a decision by the Metro Council before plans can be finalized.
Included in the $26.8 proposed plan for enhancements are high-definition video screens, an improved and more reliable sound system, LED ribbon boards, a new control room, new fan entertainment and event areas and elevators to the upper parts of the stadium.
The Titans say the enhancements are needed–for their fans. Improvements to the stadium will allow their fans to continue to have a pleasant and enjoyable experience at games as well as allow Nashville to be represented well on national television.
While the upgrades sound pricey, Titans executives and city officials have reported that revenues from a $2 ticket tax will pay for the enhancements.
