The Linc's expansion plan suggests the Eagles are focusing their efforts on hosting a Super Bowl.

The Linc’s expansion plan suggests the Eagles are focusing their efforts on hosting a Super Bowl.

With the NFL branching out its Super Bowl locations to cold weather cities, the Eagles could have an eye on landing the big game themselves. The team recently announced a two-year expansion plan which will be completed prior to the start of the 2014 season. Here are the main features of the plan:

  • 1,600 seat expansion to bring the stadium’s capacity to 70,000
  • New HD video boards
  • Footbridges connecting opposite sides of the upper concourse
  • In-stadium Wi-Fi installation

Next year’s Super Bowl will be held at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. If the game is successful, expect cities like Chicago and Philadelphia to pounce on the opportunity to host the game. Owner Jeffrey Lurie admitted that he would be intrigued by the possibility of luring the big game to Philly.

“We’re going to watch that very carefully. I’m sure we’ve all been at phenomenal football games outside in December and January. So, absolutely, root for a decent-weather day in New York and New Jersey and we think we’ve got a great city here to host it, a great stadium, and I’m sure others feel the same way.”

Ultimately, the Eagles’ potential bid on the Super Bowl won’t have any effect on the team’s on-field performance, which is what fans are most concerned about. The important thing for the Eagles is to win the Super Bowl, not to host it.
