HISTORY:

 

 

Veterans Stadium was a multi-purpose stadium in Philadelphia, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. It was located at the northeast corner of Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, as part of the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. The listed seating capacities in 1971 were 65,358 seats for football, and 56,371 for baseball.

 

It hosted the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL) from 1971 to January 2003 and the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball from 1971 to 2003. The 1976 and 1996 Major League Baseball All-Star Games were held at the venue. The Vet also hosted the annual Army-Navy football game seventeen times, between 1980 and 2001.

 

In addition to professional baseball and football, the stadium hosted other amateur and professional sports, large entertainment events, and other civic affairs. It was demolished by implosion in March 2004 after being replaced by the adjacent Citizens Bank Park and Lincoln Financial Field. A parking lot now sits on its former site.
