    History

    MetLife Stadium opened on April 10, 2010 as New Meadowlands Stadium after construction began in September 2007. The new stadium replaced Giants Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex, LLC, which the Giants called home since 1976 and the Jets since 1984. Giants Stadium operated with the Giants being the primary owner and the Jets holding a junior partnership, but MetLife Stadium is equally divided between the two teams. MetLife Stadium has already made profound progress despite its infancy in the league. It is the most expensive stadium ever built at approximately $1.6 billion spent in construction. The U.S Men's National Soccer Team is set to play the five-time World Cup Champion Brazil on August 10th, 2010 at MetLife Stadium. This will be the first time these two nations have played against each other. MetLife Stadium has also received approval from NFL owners to host the 2014 Super Bowl.
