The Philadelphia Eagles have added a premium space to Lincoln Financial Field, as the Axalta Tunnel Club debuted on Thursday.
More NFL teams have been jumping on board this trend. Previously restricted, tunnel areas are commonly being repurposed into exclusive clubs that are designed to put the fans closer to the players. The Eagles are the latest team to undertake this overhaul, adding a club that will come with some special perks.
As part of their membership packages, the Eagles are offering VIP access to training camp, pre-sale access for events, invitations to premium gatherings, as well as all-inclusive food and drink options. Tapping into some of the technology trends that are evident in facility makeovers, the Eagles have equipped every pair of seats with a Microsoft Surface tablet.
According to the Philladephia Business Journal, the Axalta Tunnel Club will be open to members from two hours before kick-off until one hour after the game. The naming rights for the Tunnel Club were purchased by Axalta, a Philadelphia-based coating company.
