Lumen Field was Nominated by USA Today for Best NFL Stadium

The home stadium for the Seattle Seahawks (also the Sounders & Sea Dragons) has been nominated by USA Today for Best NFL Stadium. The nomination landed them in a contest where fans have been voting on their favorite and voting is almost over. The stadium getting the most votes claims the 'Best NFL Stadium' crown for 2023. Lumen Field has been home to some amazing moments over the years like 'BeastQuake' or any of the NFL NFC Championship games held there (even though the stadium had a different name then) but does it deserve the 'Best NFL Stadium' crown?

USA Today: 'Lumen Field is Renowned for Its Fans'

On the voting page describing Lumen Field, they say "Truly a locals' stadium, Lumen Field is renowned for its fans, collectively known as 'The 12s'. The experience of being amongst the throng here is incredible, as is the bountiful selection of local craft beer, Starbucks and other local coffees, and fine Pacific Northwest-centric food." Yes, the article does mention being 'amongst the throng' as being incredible but they forget to mention exactly why. Seahawks fans are responsible for many damaged eardrums with the insane constant amount of noise generated on game day. Multiple times fans at Lumen Field set the world record for the 'Loudest Stadium in the World'. Even though the stadium eventually lost holding the 'loudest' World Record, the Seahawks fans at Lumen Field are still known consistently as one of the loudest NFL stadiums every year. Besides being loud, the food in the stadium is pretty darn delicious with plenty of variety. Also, the shape of the stadium and its steep incline make every seat closer to the field.
