Purpose-built football stadia dominate their surroundings in many major urban areas around the United States, and on fall weekends they are often surrounded by legions of fans preparing for the upcoming gridiron contests. These two sites will allow distant (and not-so distant) visitors to learn about each of these "battlegrounds" through the use of photographs and brief expository pieces on the history of each structure. By browsing through each site, visitors can also learn about proposed stadia that will be built in the near future, such as the much-discussed new home of the New York Jets and the up-and-coming structure that will house the Arizona Cardinals. A trip back in time can be had by visiting the "Past Stadiums" area which includes photographs of such former football palaces as the Kingdome in Seattle and Soldier Field (which has since undergone an unfortunate renovation and expansion) in Chicago. Finally, visitors can offer their own opinions and ratings of the stadiums profiled on the two sites.
