In 2003, the SuperCoppa Italiana, an annual match pitting the winners of Serie A (Italy's top division) and the Coppa Italia (Italian Cup), was held in Giants Stadium instead of in Italy because both clubs involved (Juventus and AC Milan) were touring the United States late in the summer, when the event is normally scheduled. In 2005, it played host to many matches to the CONCACAF Gold Cup, including the final which saw the USA victorious over Panama in a 3-1 penalty shootout after both sides failed to score goals during regulation and extra time. It has seen many European soccer tours in recent years paying venue to such big clubs as Manchester United,Celtic F.C, Chelsea, Liverpool, and many others.

New York Giants playing at Giants Stadium, December 2005

To accommodate these varied events, Giants Stadium has sported various playing surfaces in its history. AstroTurf was the original surface for the playing field. This surface was covered by Bermuda grass sod for the World Cup in 1994, identical to that at the Rose Bowl where the other semifinal and the finals were held (so that both teams in the finals would have played on identical surfaces). The grass was removed after the World Cup, as it would have died in the New Jersey winter. The MetroStars, however, installed a grass field each spring, but was removed prior to the football season, forcing the team to play its final home games each year on AstroTurf. The AstroTurf was removed in 2000 and a system of interchangeable grass trays was implemented from 2000 to 2002, but was considered a failure, since the quality of the field worsened as the NFL season progressed. (Part of the problem may have stemmed from the fact that the original AstroTurf field was kept in place under the grass, to help in drainage.) It was replaced by a new artificial surface, FieldTurf, in 2003.

When the New York Jets left Shea Stadium and moved to Giants Stadium in 1984, many predicted the stadium would be renamed. Understandably, the Jets organization preferred not to reside in a facility named after another team. However, under the terms of the stadium lease, changing the name of the stadium requires the Giants' approval, and the Giants refused to change the name. The proposed new stadium is expected to bear a sponsor's name as bids for the naming rights are currently being accepted - it is not yet known if such an agreement will include renaming the current stadium if and when it is finalized.

While the stadium has a decidedly blue atmosphere, matching the Giants' team colors, when the Jets play there, the walls are covered with green banners, matching their colors. In addition, the gates outside the stadium are covered with green Jets logos to hide the standard blue and red. The endzones also used to be repainted green when the Giants played with blue endzones, but ever since the Giants changed their endzone art to a white GIANTS with a green background, the painting of the entire endzone is not needed. However, Jets logos are still painted on over the Giant logo. In mid-December, traditionally the stadium hosts a Saturday-Sunday NFL doubleheader, with the Giants playing a home game one day and the Jets playing the other. The night between the games is a challenge for the stadium grounds crew, as they have only hours to convert the stadium from one team's colors to the other. As per the NFL schedule, the Giants and the Jets play each other once every four years. In that case, there is a predetermined home team, and a predetermined away team. In those games, the "away" team gets a rare away game in their own home stadium. The Giants and Jets typically play each other every year in the NFL Preseason, and the teams rotate annually home/away.

The New Meadowlands Stadium will be nearby the current stadium. The New York Jets were planning a move to a new domed stadium on Manhattan's West Side sometime near the year 2010. However, with the political defeat in June 2005 of the West Side Stadium plan, the Jets ended up agreeing to share the new Meadowlands stadium with the Giants.

On January 25, 2007, Swedish construction company Skanska AB had announced that it received a $998 million order to design and build a new football stadium for the New York Giants and the New York Jets. The open-air stadium will seat 82,000 spectators and include 217 luxury suite boxes. The luxury suites will include several additional amenities, such as more ample space between rows which will help people arrive to their seat much easier and watch the game more comfortably. The overall atmosphere will be enhanced with comfortable couches, armchairs and several flat panel televisions.

Once the New Meadowlands Stadium is completed, Giants Stadium will be demolished to make way for parking and possible expansion of the Meadowlands Xanadu complex. The next step for the Giants and Jets is to collaborate on getting their new stadium built while still playing games in Giants Stadium alongside the construction site. The Washington Post reported that Giants co-owner John Mara has said that the two clubs will have to address some problems arising from the loss of parking spaces. The Giants' other co-owner, Steve Tisch, has said: "It is a relief. But it sort of takes this off the table and the bigger issue is building the stadium." The Meadowlands Xanadu (also known as the Xanadu Project) will be a retail and entertainment complex in the New Jersey Meadowlands. ...


One issue with the new Giants Stadium is the rising costs. Ticket prices will continue to rise in order to offset this tremendous cost. In addition, season ticket holders may have to pay a fee just in order to reclaim their seats, through the sale of Personal Seat Licenses.

A personal seat license gives the holder the right to buy season tickets for a certain seat in the stadium. ... Naming rights are the right to name a piece of property, either tangible property or an event, usually granted in exchange for financial considerations. ...
