Lincoln Financial Field, commonly known as The Linc, is an American football stadium located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It serves as the home stadium of the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL) and the Temple Owls football team of Temple University. Lincoln Financial Field has a seating capacity of 71,896.

Lincoln Financial Field opened on August 3rd, 2003, after two years of construction that began on May 7th, 2001. It replaced the Veterans Stadium, which opened in 1971 and served as the home field for both the Eagles and Phillies. One interesting fact about Lincoln Financial Field is that the design of the stadium replicates the shape of an eagle, with wing-like canopies above the east and west stands.

The ballpark lies on the northeast corner of the Sports Complex, which includes Citizens Bank Park, the Wells Fargo Center, and Xfinity Live!, the Center’s adjacent theme park and food court.

Philadelphia Eagles Tickets

The Philadelphia Eagles sell their tickets via Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket outlet for the NFL.

For most teams, Ticketmaster sells tickets on behalf of the team and resells tickets on behalf of ticket sellers. You can tell the difference on the site as the Blue dots are tickets from the team themselves, and the pink dots are from verified sellers.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown may have further selling platform fees added, so take time to read my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the team’s Mobile App to your phone as it contains much Gameday information for the stadium.
