The Philadelphia Eagles excitedly welcome fans back home to Lincoln Financial Field, beginning with the first of two public practices one happened yesterday, Sunday, August 8, the next one on Sunday, August 22. Tickets are on sale for $10 – with all proceeds benefiting the Eagles Autism Foundation – and can be purchased by visiting Ticketmaster.com.

Eagles President Don Smolenski

“We are thrilled to welcome Eagles fans home to Lincoln Financial Field,” said Philadelphia Eagles President Don Smolenski. “We are all looking forward to hearing a chorus of 70,000 people singing ‘Fly Eagles Fly’ this season. For generations – from Franklin Field to the Vet, and now at Lincoln Financial Field – there has been an incredible bond between the fans and the team. That connection was dearly missed this past year and we cannot wait to have Eagles fans bring their passion and energy to spark Lincoln Financial Field back to life.

Norman Vossschulte – Director of Fan Experience

As part of Lincoln Financial Field’s official reopening, its signature gameday experience will offer new and reimagined club spaces, amenities, fan activations, and Aramark concessions. On Friday, August 6, the Eagles hosted a stadium tour for media to showcase some of these enhanced features that Lincoln Financial Field will now be offering, and I attended.

The press conference before the tour

Definitely one of my favorite spots, watching the game on the field, in the end zone. Now that would be thrilling. A birds eye view of the game, plus all the action in the stands, a private bathroom nearby and food:

DraftKings Field Club

  • Offers a true VIP experience and exclusive game day access featuring a sideline pen in the north end zone, hospitality arrangements in the private club space, and more.

Then there’s the new Fox Bet Lounge, located right next to the players entrance into the Linc. If you’re not too cool for school you can wave to them as they head to work, that’s if you notice as you enjoy your beverages and food at the all inclusive membership club. Prices start at $5,500 a year, per seat you already have a season ticket for in the stands.

In the photo on the right, there’s a double window, mirror in the center. THAT lets you watch the post game press conference, while enjoying your all inclusive beverages and food. Now that is cool.

Meet ME AT:

LifeBrand Gate

  • LifeBrand, a rising tech start-up from West Chester, received naming rights to Lincoln Financial Field’s Northeast Gate as part of a new sponsorship agreement in April 2021. (which is adjacent to Pepsi Plaza. PS PhillyChitChat is always looking for sponsors or advertisements. I like the sound of Pepsi PhillyChitChat.) All this talk of food, is making me hungry. I can’t wait to go back to the Linc and enjoy some more Pierogies and Love & Honey Chicken!!
