New Meadowlands Stadium

New Meadowlands Stadium is a stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, United States as part of the Meadowlands Sports Complex. New Meadowlands Stadium is the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets of the National Football League and is adjacent to the site of the former Giants Stadium, which was home to the Giants from 1976 until 2009 and the Jets from 1984 until 2009. Like its predecessor, the new stadium is the only NFL stadium shared by two teams. However, unlike Giants Stadium in which the Jets were a junior partner, the new stadium is a 50/50 partnership between both NFL teams, but the rights will be given to the 2010 season predecor, and while the stadium is owned by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority on paper, the two teams jointly built the stadium using private funds, and administer it jointly through New Meadowlands Stadium Corporation. New Meadowlands Stadium opened on April 10, 2010 when it featured the Big City Classic lacrosse event. At a construction cost of approximately $1.6 billion, New Meadowlands Stadium the most expensive sports stadium ever built.
On May 25, 2010, it was announced that Super Bowl XLVIII was awarded to this stadium, the first time a Super Bowl would be played in the New York metropolitan area, and the first time that a non-domed stadium in the northern United States would host the biggest American football game in the professional ranks.

The first concert at the New Meadowlands was New Jersey natives Bon Jovi, who performed four shows at the New Meadowlands Stadium venue on their The Circle Tour. The second concert at the stadium was Hot 97's Summer Jam. The Eagles performed here on June 10 as part of their summer tour. U2 is scheduled to perform at the stadium on July 20, 2011 on their U2 360° Tour. The show was originally to be held on July 19, 2010, but had to be postponed following Bono's emergency back surgery. The show will be the third in the New Jersey / New York area on the U2 360° Tour, the first two being at Giants Stadium on September 23 and 24, 2009. The stadium hosted a friendly soccer match between the United States and Brazil on August 10, 2010. Brazil won 2-0 in front of a near-sellout crowd of 77,223; the game was played on a temporary grass field.
