From 1960 to 1996 the team played at the Astrodome, which at the time of its construction was the only multipurpose stadium in the country. However, in the mid-1980s, the owner of the team Bud Adams was to change the home ground because of the low seating capacity. Some seating improvements were made to the home ground but Adams was not satisfied. So after getting the budget of $144 million approved from the Davidson County and Nashville voters. Then several other funds were raised for the stadium from taxes and the total cost of the construction was $290 million. After the completion of the 1996 season, the team moved to Tennessee. However, there was a problem that the Nissan Stadium was not ready to be used as the home ground for the team. So during its construction, the team played at Vanderbilt Stadium and Liberty Bowl for a couple of seasons. The construction of the stadium was completed in 1999 and the team played its first home game in the new home in September. And won 13 games in a row before losing to the Baltimore Ravens in November 2000.
Throughout the stadium’s history, it had four names. The first one was the Adelphia Coliseum, named by Adelphia Business Solutions. The deal was made for $30 million for 15 years. However, the company missed its payments and the agreement was abandoned in 2002. It was called the Coliseum until 2006 and then LP Building Products named it the LP Field after signing a naming agreement for $30 million for 10 years. Lastly in 2015 Nissan purchased the naming rights in a 20-year long contract.
The stadium received substantial upgrades in 2012. The improvements included the addition of LED ribbon boards added to the upper mezzanines, the installation of high-speed elevators, and a brand new sound system. The entire scoreboard apparatus was replaced with Two new HD LED video displays. And when the installation was done they were officially the second-largest display in the NFL.
The seating capacity of the stadium has been improved from 1999 to 2006. Since at the time of its construction the audience capacity was 67,700 and the current capacity has been raised to 69,143 people. The improvements have been well received since the Nissan Stadium has been a sellout since 1999.
