LP Field History
Since 1999 the best place to go in Nashville to get your football fix has definitely been LP Field,
home of both the Tennessee Titans of the NFL and the Tennessee State University Tigers' football team. LP Field also hosts
soccer matches and the occasional concert as well as public meetings and parties in its additional areas. Construction of
the stadium began in 1997 as the Houston Oilers agreed to relocate to Nashville and become the Tennessee Titans. By the time
the stadium opened in 1999, fans had already snatched up all of the personal seat licenses and season tickets and the Titans
have sold out every home game at LP Stadium to date.
A 2012 renovation of LP Field provided it with a large screen that
is second in size in the NFL only to that of the Dallas Cowboys at their home field. LP Field can hold over 69,000 fans for
football games and even more when they have a big concert and fans are allowed to stand on the field. On game days for the
Tennessee Titans tens of thousands of fans pass through the gates eager to cheer on the home team and they make LP Field one
of the most exciting venues in all of professional sports.

Although LP Field is primarily
known and used as the home field for the Tennessee Titans, there is plenty else that the stadium offers locals. It is also
used as the home football field of the Tigers of Tennessee State University as well as the site for the Franklin American
Mortgage Company Motor City Bowl held at the end of each college football season. Fans of the U.S. Men's National Team know
LP Field well as it has hosted several CONCACAF games as well as friendlies and World Cup and Olympic qualifiers, notably
an April 1, 2009 3-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago which saw Jozy Altidore become the youngest U.S. soccer player to record

On January 8,
2000 the Tennessee Titans played the Buffalo Bills in a playoff game at LP Field that would go down in NFL history. The Titans,
behind with the clock expiring ran a trick play that resulted in a touchdown and allowed the home team to advance to the next
round of the playoffs. The play was executed in front of a then record crowd at the stadium and has since been remembered
as The Music City Miracle.
