At least 63,400 people can fit under its giant retractable roof, with 88 luxury suites available if you want to have a luxury game experience. The stadium doesn't just host football games – it also puts on major concerts as well as Monster Jam truck rallies, WrestleMania events, international soccer matches, and basketball games. Inside you'll find plenty of places to eat.
