We are now less than two weeks from the opening of Livestrong Sporting Park. I took a tour yesterday and snapped a few photos. If you've not seen the stadium recently, you might be surprised at how much work has actually been done.See the gallery here.
You may notice in the pictures that the video boards along the field seem to have disappeared. That was planned: Gillette Stadium is borrowing them for the USA-Spain game on June 4th.
Also, yesterday was keg delivery day, so the beer will flow. There will be many types of beer available, but Budweiser is a stadium partner and will be the only beer with advertising in the stadium. For you those not interested in beer, the stadium will serve Pepsi products only.
