By Collin Cooper On March - 30 - 2010
Welcome to the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. Once home to some of the most notorious sports facilities in the US, perhaps the world, it is now home to a handsome collection of stadiums, each with it's own flavor. And as a bonus, we are going to try and make it through this guide without mentioning that obligatory Philadelphia style sandwich.

These are the top 5 Stadiums that are currently being constructed. These facilities can consider themselves very lucky as they crept in right before the banking crisis. I have a feeling that we will not see many stadiums come online after these 5 open so enjoy them. Three of these stadiums kept their respected teams (Penguins, Marlins & Twins) in town. The other two stadiums are over the top in luxury amenities. While Luxurys are great, they don't alway equal a great new stadium.
