|LP Field is a football stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, United States, used primarily as the home stadium of the NFL's Tennessee Titans, but also used as the home football field for the Tennessee State University Tigers. It is also the site of the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl, a postseason college football game played each December, and is occasionally used as a venue for soccer matches. LP Field is located on the east bank of the Cumberland River, directly across the river from downtown Nashville. Its seating capacity is slightly under 69,000. Its first event was a preseason game between the Titans and the Atlanta Falcons on August 27, 1999.
The playing surface of LP Field is Tifsport Bermuda Sod, a natural grass. However, the relatively cool climate of Nashville, combined with the wear and tear of hosting a game nearly every weekend, usually results in a resodding of the area "between the hashes" in late November. Despite the efforts to improve the field conditions, the poor quality of the grass has become a complaint of many NFL players, fans, and broadcasters.
