Eagles dedicate new mural outside Lincoln Financial Field

New, comments

Your walk to the Linc may look different this season.

The Eagles' stadium complex has undergone a facelift in recent years. Last season the team added new seats, installed new LED screens and completed a bridge to connect both sections of the upper concourse. This year, the Eagles are kicking off the season by updating the art around the stadium.

On Thursday evening the Eagles, in conjunction with the Mural Arts Program, dedicated a new mural outside the Linc on Darien Street. The mural features images of players, fans and the stadium itself.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper and safety Earl Wolff were in attendance for the ribbon cutting ceremony, which was accompanied by the hashtag #OurCityOurTeam.

The Eagles have been focusing on fan experience in recent years, making several upgrades in and around the stadium. Chairman and CEO Jeffery Lurie has stated in the past that he'd like to host a Super Bowl, a topic of discussion that swirled after New York was granted Super Bowl XLVIII two seasons ago.
