The stadium has also hosted many soccer games in the city, a number of which are high level tournaments. It has all the necessary amenities and features; thanks to a revamping done in 2012. With a listed seating capacity of 69,143, this stadium is found on the east of Cumberland River. The Nissan Stadium opened its doors in 1999 and hosted its maiden game between the Falcons of Atlanta and the Titans. Official opening was delayed owing to natural disasters like floods and a tornado. The name of the stadium has also changed over time. Initially, it was known as the Aldelphia Coliseum before changing into The Coliseum in 2002 to 2006. From 2006 to 2015, the stadium was known as the LP Field. The stadium has three seating levels that include dual towers, the lower and upper levels. There is also a luxury suite located within the towers. Below is some history of how it came to be.
History
In 1996, Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County voted in a referendum to set aside funds to build a new stadium. Over $140 million of public funds were allocated as partial funding. Other funding sources included Metro water taxes and sale of personal seat licenses. The construction was halted a bit in 1998 after a tornado hit the Nashville area. In 2010, flooding covered the site, further causing completion delays. In summer of 2012, the stadium received a face lift upgrading various elements. This brought the whole facility to a higher level, raising standards greatly.
