When fans enter the renovated Lincoln Financial Field, the first thing Eagles senior vice president of operations Jason Miller said they'll notice are new high-definition video boards behind each end zone and LED ribbon displays around the stadium. The new boards and displays are being installed as part of the second phase of the Eagles' $125-million project.

The Eagles are also adding nearly 1,600 seats in three corners of the stadium - approximately 800 in the southwest corner, 600 in the northeast corner, and 200 in the northwest corner. The team is preserving the view of the Philadelphia skyline, and capacity will remain under 70,000.

Bridges will connect 350 degrees of the stadium, and the two stadium clubs are being renovated. There will be 1,185 new high-definition televisions throughout the stadium. The renovations will be completed in time for the Inter Milan-AS Roma soccer game on Aug. 2.
