The Metlife Stadium is one of the largest fields in the United States, with a capacity for 82,500 people and is located specifically in East Rutherford, in the metropolitan area of New York. The stadium is home to the two New York NFL teams: the Giants and the Jets. The stadium already hosted Wrestlemania 29 in 2013, with an audience of more than 80,000 spectators.
