Seattle Seahawks President Mark Idelson has announced the team will renovate the CenturyLink field for an NFL stadium.
The new stadium will be called CenturyLink, and will include an open-air football stadium with an enclosed plaza.
Idelson said the team is committed to providing Seattle fans with the best in sports, entertainment and education.
The new stadium would open in 2018 and be the home of the Seahawks for the next 10 years.
Iderson also announced that the team would begin work on a new, multi-purpose stadium that would include a retractable roof and additional seating capacity.
Idelson said Seattle is already a destination for sports fans, and the Seahawks will continue to be a major draw for them.
The stadium will feature a new concourse and seating for an estimated 40,000 people, which will be in addition to the team’s current 70,000-seat stadium.
