Just by looking at Lincoln Financial Field, you can tell that the Philadelphia Eagles are making big strides in upgrading their home. In the past year, the Linc has seen a variety of upgrades ranging from the club suits, better WiFi signals, wider entrances and solar panels/wind turbines to power the stadium in an effort to go green. Phase Two of the upgrades is about to begin.

The second phase of the stadium's facelift include adding 1,600 new seats and new high-definition video boards. Eagles President Don Smolenski said that the addition of the 1,600 seats is the first time that seats will be added to the Linc since it opened in 2003.

The new seats will one major side effect: higher ticket prices for 52 percent of the stadium's seats. Five percent of the seats will actually decrease in price while the remaining 43 percent will remain the same price as they have been. The new price range for Eagles tickets is between $75 and $130. 

Even with the higher prices, the new seats will be beneficial for season ticket holders that wish to relocate, buy seat licenses and/or add more tickets to their account. Smolenski said the ticket office will be working things out and be in contact with the season ticket holders who have put in such requests throughout the offseason.

In addition to the new seats, the Eagles will be adding brand new high-definition video boards to the Linc. The Eagles have teamed up with Panasonic to bring high-definition video boards as well as LED ribbon boards (the narrow video board between seating levels) that will go completely around the bowl. 

Phase Two of the Linc upgrades is expected to be done in August, just in time for the 2014 season.
