Philadelphia has a New Football and Soccer Stadium

The new Lincoln Financial Field was a huge, multi-faceted concrete construction project. LATICRETE® was proud to take part in this $520 million undertaking. The new stadium's construction brought a unique slate of obstacles with it. Record rains, snow, high winds and scheduling challenges all threatened the common goal to keep the stadium project on time and on budget. Yet the construction team met and overcame those challenges to complete the project in June, 2003, giving Eagles fans a state-of-the-art facility in which to enjoy another playoff-bound Eagles season!
