ADDITIONAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
Veterans Stadium opened in 1971 as home to the Eagles and the Phillies, and was named by the Philadelphia City Council to honor all veterans. It was built during the "cookie-cutter" or "concrete donut" trend of the 1960-70s but instead of being perfectly ciruclar, it was shaped like a rounded square. Architects called its shape the "Octorad" design as the four sides are based on four arcs of a large circle and the corners were from four arcs of a small circle. This variant on the circular stadium was created to provide better sitelines for fans but also moved them further from the field. Despite that distance, the Stadium got so loud when the crowd cheered that the opposing team members could not hear each other. In fact, the 700 Level was the highest seating area of the Stadium (prior to the installation of luxury skyboxes) and known for its noise and energy. In 1981, Veterans Stadium hosted the first of two NFC Championships. In this memorable game, the Eagles wore their white jerseys, forcing the Dallas Cowboys to wear their "unlucky" blue jerseys, and, with this slight psychological advantage, defeated the Cowboys, 20-7. The second Championship game at Veterans in 2003 was also the Eagles' last in the Stadium which was demolished a year later. The site became the parking lot for the adjacent current sports venues and, in 2006, granite markers were installed where the goal posts once stood.
