IN FEBRUARY 2012, the Eagles started the process of revitalizing Lincoln Financial Field to give fans a better in game experience. More than 2 1/2 years and $125 million later, the renovations are "99 percent complete," according to team president Don Smolenski. All of the work will be done before the Eagles' home opener on Sept. 7 against Jacksonville. The in-game experience at the Linc, which opened in 2003, will be much more modern, an upgrade that was much needed, Smolenski said.

After 10 seasons at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles are investing $125 million to renovate the stadium during the next two years. The privately financed project will include a seating expansion, two new high-definition video boards, upgraded amenities, WiFi installation, imagery of great moments and players throughout team history, and two new connecting bridges for the upper concourses. The project was started in 2010 and has included research of season-ticket holders, the season-ticket advisory board, and focus groups of fans, as well as surveying architectural firms that have built stadiums since Lincoln Financial Field opened.

Your wedding inside the Linc? Why not? The Eagles announced yesterday that Lincoln Financial Field will be available to host special events, such as corporate events, banquets, trade shows, product launches and even weddings. Since its opening in 2003, the stadium has been available for only a small number of events each year, mostly for charitable causes. The Eagles said areas from the 45,000-square foot SCA Club to the locker room could be set up for specific events.

The Eagles are bringing some of the living room to Lincoln Financial Field. As part of its $125 million revitalization of the stadium, team officials said Wednesday, they are putting $25 million worth of high-definition TV displays, including two huge video walls in both end zones, into the 11-year-old stadium. The team also will install 2,000 linear feet of digital "ribbon boards" between seating levels for out-of-town NFL scores and fantasy football statistics, and 1,200 wall-mounted TVs on the concourses and other areas.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Rutgers junior cornerback Logan Ryan said that he bled Eagles green while attending Eastern High in Voorhees, and that is another reason Saturday's game at Lincoln Financial Field against Temple will have a special significance. It's not just because Rutgers (6-0, 3-0 Big East) and Temple (3-2, 2-0) are unbeaten in conference play. It's also because Ryan has seen his share of football at the Linc. "It's going to be a dream come true," Ryan said about playing at the Eagles stadium.

The Eagles' newest player is a real powerhouse. The stats are electrifying: On a recent sunny day, this bulky unit churned out 21,033.7 kilowatt hours, nearly enough to power two average homes for a year. Yes, the long-awaited solar panels and wind turbines at Lincoln Financial Field are up and running. More than 11,000 panels have been positioned atop the roof, over some of the parking spots, and armoring the side of the building along I-95. Those are the workhorses.

The Temple Owls have their own locker room, complete with cherry-red metal lockers, at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple's 2003 schedule scrolled on the electronic boards during a media open house at the new stadium yesterday. Yes, it looks as if the Owls will play their home football games at the Eagles' new stadium after all. The two sides have agreed to the basics of a deal, a source familiar with the negotiations said. There were some details to work out, and they are holding up an announcement, but it would be a shock if Temple played its games anywhere else this year.

The U.S. bid committee hoping to stage the World Cup in 2018 or 2022 sent initial letters last week to public officials and stadium operators of 70 potential sites in 50 markets for soccer's showcase tournament. Among those contacted was Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles' interest in hosting matches is unclear, but the stadium has been used for international soccer events in the past and will host a CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal doubleheader July 18. Six of the stadiums used for the 1994 tournament were contacted, including Soldier Field in Chicago; the Cotton Bowl in Dallas; the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando; the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

THEY HELD a soccer match at Lincoln Financial Field a few weeks before the first Eagles game in 2003. In the restaurant business, this would be called a soft opening. Don Smolenski, who was the Eagles CFO at the time, and team president Joe Banner headed out into the concourse to check things out. They discovered a rather sizable problem that showed why soft openings are a good idea. "For the soccer game, we realized that our signage was confusing," recalled Smolenski, now the team's president.

The Eagles are in their 10th season at Lincoln Financial Field, where they've posted a 45-34 regular-season record and a 4-2 mark in the postseason. In that same span, they are 46-32-1 on the road. So much for home-field advantage. Even so, here is a look at some of the most significant Eagles moments at the stadium: Sept. 8, 2003: The Linc opened with a thud as Tampa Bay, which closed Veterans Stadium by stunning the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game 9 months earlier, shut out the Eagles, 17-0.

Chip Kelly values the NFL draft. He just doesn't understand the hype surrounding it. Expounding on an interview with the MMQB website, the Eagles coach identified the draft hype as the one thing in the NFL that has surprised him. "Literally from the day the Super Bowl ends until the draft . . . that's all everybody talks about," Kelly said before Monday's practice. He also said the signing-day hype in college was misguided, pointing out that few of those players immediately contribute.

WHEN HE would drop back and survey the field, thoughts of his surgically repaired shoulder occasionally lingered in the back of his mind. This was during the Eagles' organized team activities in May and June, and although Mark Sanchez felt good, it took physical reps on the fields at the NovaCare Complex before he felt all the way back. With the Eagles through 3 days of training camp, the front-runner to become Nick Foles' primary backup said he feels no apprehension or hesitation on the field regarding his 2013 injury.

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.
