Scoop: Titans exploring new stadium https://t.co/uMnNwZX8zA— Nate Rau (@tnnaterau) February 17, 2022
The report indicates that Nissan Stadium renovation talks between Nashville mayor John Cooper and the Titans have expanded in recent weeks to include the possibility of building a new stadium. All avenues are reportedly being explored.
Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk had previously debunked the idea of building a new stadium in August of 2019. Things have obviously changed, and Axios reports that renovation talks recently took a turn as the two sides discovered the price tag for necessary upgrades at Nissan had unexpectedly skyrocketed to a number that now represents “more than the double” the original estimation of $600 million.
For our local readers, a new stadium would potentially be a part of a dramatic centerpiece in the team’s broader plan to transform the riverfront in East Nashville with an ambitious mixed-use redevelopment project, Rau reports.
It certainly qualifies as intriguing turn-of-events worth following closely. Stay tuned to MCM for further developments. Would you like to see the Titans play in a new stadium? Leave your thoughts, concerns, questions and opinions in the comments.
