Gallery: Renderings of what new seats at Linc will look like with connected upper concourses

Feb 6, 2014, 1:26 PM EDT

You can get angry about ticket price hikes all you want, but as a sports fan, you really should get used to tickets to your favorite team going up every couple of years. With the impressive inroads made by HD TVs and television programming these days though, it will be up to the teams and the leagues to make the experience at the stadium or arena more enticing.

The majority of tickets at the Linc will see a rise in price next year, with some others staying the same, and a few locations even seeing a decrease.

So aside from the obvious price hikes, the most interesting thing about the announcement today by the Eagles, are the new seats and state of the art television boards. The idea of a 360 video board experience seems enticing.

Tickets to an Eagles game will now range from $75 to $130 depending on seat location. Geoff Mosher has more on the specifics of some of the changes:

The most glaring upgrade will be the Panasonic-brand HD video and LED ribbon boards along with a new sound system. The ribbon boards along side each side of the stadium will be extended to provide 360 degrees of video, real-time scores, statistics and other splashy features that the Eagles hope will enhance the fan experience.

And perhaps the most interesting aspect of the new seating areas for fans who already have seats? The upper concourses will now be connected.

    I dunno. It still doesn’t seem gold-standardy enough. Needs more wind turbines.

      and I want two cup holders per seat. Raise the field by 4 inches so I’m closer to the action. I want solar panels on each wing on every turbine. Each solar panel will have smaller wind turbines.

    125 mil.. 1600 additional seats. That seems like.. not enough. Maybe with the money they spent on 124 additional murals they could have reserved for a new playing surface. Or even.. change back their real color.

    The ribbon boards will provide “360 degrees of scores, stats and other splashy features that will enhance fan blah blah zzzzz”….wait what we mean to say is “ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS MORE ADS STILL MORE ADS (continue for 360 degrees)”.

    And really, you’re adding 1600 more upper level seats? Just for me? To enhance my experience of cattle-chuting up that single skinny escalator to 2nd level? Ya know, the one that breaks down during every home game?

    Yipee! Super Bowl here we come.

      Quick follow-up:
      1. Those video boards/ribbons are not 360 degrees. Somebody’s bad at math.
      2. Where are the 3 seats located that have the price decrease?
      3. Serious question: Are they still gonna sell the 3,000 standing room seats per game, now that they’ve eliminated all remaining sight-lines to watching anything from a standing-room position? Are those folks now just gonna clog the concourses around TV sets to say “they were at the game”?

      Most user-unfriendly stadium ever just got more unfriendly.

        Standing room was my biggest thing in those renderings- they basically blocked the two largest standing room areas…during games a lot of those ramps would be filled with people watching the game/smoking/taking a break from being drunk and in their seat, etc.

    As has been said before: the prices (tix, food, parking) are what make the stadium experience such a low point now. How is increasing prices to add video boards making it any better?

    Don’t forget the clubs under the 100 level . This will help the upper level out 0.” Let the upper level eat cake”. Why add escalators to help the upstairs? Why not add aluminum seats downstairs like the Seahawks and create a birds nest? This would increase the noise level and keep sound in. I give every team in the city thinks they have to reinvent wheel…..if the eagles wanted to enhance their green close in the open sides with recycled plastic to keep wind out and sound in…if the cared about safety they will raise railings up stairs…
