What was temporarily called the New Meadowlands Arena, officially got a new name yesterday. The home to the New York Jets and New York Giants is now known as the MetLife Stadium.

According to www.Giants.com, MetLife Stadium is the only stadium that houses two NFL teams (both of which are ranked among the top-five most valuable franchises in the league). More than two million football fans attend games there every year, and the stadium is slated to host Super Bowl XLVIII© in February 2014.

This Friday, August 26, Jets and Giants players will come together to celebrate in Manhattan’s Bryant Park starting at 1 p.m. Fans are invited, and there’ll be game ticket giveaways and mingling with the team, notably Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan with Mark Sanchez and Darrelle Revis, and Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin with Eli Manning and Justin Tuck.

  1. Lets see, the stadium is in NJ, the games are played in NJ and both teams practice in NJ. So why is the celebration in NY????? AND why isn’t NJ in the teams name????

  2. Why is Newark Academy in Livingston? Why is East Orange Golf Club in Short Hills? If it made sense, it wouldnt be the Jersey way!

  3. Jimmy, don’t forget the Upper Montclair Country Club in Clifton.

    I have to say, though, as corporate sponsorships go, “MetLife Stadium” doesn’t sound all that bad. I wonder if they’ll put up ads with Snoopy playing football — perhaps with appropriate team colors?
