CenturyLink Field - Seattle, WA

Some might wonder why the Seattle Seahawks, who play at CenturyLink Field, are almost twice as likely to win at home. Seahawks fans know it’s probably because of the noise. Crowds at the stadium have twice set the Guinness World Record for loudest recorded cheers. This has led to frequent calls of false starts and delays of games against visiting teams. To prepare for the 2005-2006 NFC Championship Game, the Carolina Panthers even played recordings of jet engines during practice. (They still lost.)

Many believe the shape of the stadium is the reason for its high volumes. It has one of the smaller footprints among NFL stadiums, and upper level seating extends over lower levels. The roof and both ends of the field are open and provide views of downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier. As such, the field forms a slightly open shell, creating a partial echo chamber.

The 69,000-seat stadium is used primarily as the home of the Seattle Seahawks. College and even high school football games regularly take place on the field as well. The Seattle Sounders FC of the MLS play their home games there, and the venue has hosted several national team soccer matches. Besides football and soccer, event organizers haul in 650 truckloads of dirt every year for Supercross races. The stadium is also used for trade and consumer shows.

Many major headliners have played the venue, including the Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift and Metallica. U2 set the stadium record for attendance during a 2011 show that drew 70,000 fans.

Seahawks games have generally sold out since the 2008-2009 season, but due to the flexible nature of the field, seating can be added if there’s increased demand. The stadium is just south of downtown Seattle and can be accessed via Route 99, Interstate 5 or Interstate 90. Several public transit routes connect to the site from central Seattle, and there’s plenty of parking nearby.

In terms of food and drink, the field is slightly separated from the downtown area, but there are still a few good options nearby. For those who prefer to eat at the stadium itself, there are diverse choices including pho, sandwiches, burgers, and even some locally sourced, chef-driven cuisine.
