11 Most Expensive NFL Stadiums

NFL stadiums have gotten exponentially more expensive over the years. The reason? The NFL is a multi-billion dollar business, and a lot of pressure is placed upon its teams to produce venues worthy of hosting Super Bowls. In response, NFL teams are exploring every avenue to affording the perfect facility. We all know about the proposed stadium project in Inglewood, CA, but this is just another in a long line of mega complexes popping up across the nation. Take a look at the 11 most expensive NFL stadiums ever!

1. The University of Phoenix Stadium

Price: $527 million

Built in 2003, University of Phoenix Stadium was a massive innovation in modern stadium design, not to mention a huge upgrade for the Cardinals. It was the first stadium to include a retractable field (is rolled outdoors for the grass to collect sunlight, then rolled back indoors for game time). The venue has already hosted two Super Bowls in its short life, and it will undoubtedly host many more. There are over 14,000 on-site parking spaces around the facility.
