Let’s Huddle: Football Stadiums a Train Ride Away
If you’re a real football fan, you live by two seasons: football season and not football season. As America’s Railroad, it should come as no surprise, that we love taking you to see America’s Game. Whether you responsibly tailgate in our café car, stretch out for a nap or adjust your fantasy team with our free wifi, a train ride is the way to get to the game this season. To get hyped for the season we've got a quick rundown of football stadiums just a train ride away.
Seattle – Century Link Field
After winning the Lombardi Trophy, we can guarantee the 12th Man is going to be ready to cause a raucous this season. Bring those ear plugs and neon green to see if Seattle is ready to repeat.
Routes: Amtrak Cascades, Coast Starlight and Empire Builder
First Home Game: Sept. 4
Atlanta- The Georgia Dome
Don’t lie, you’ve been watching Hard Knocks and now you’re a little bit of a Falcons fan. It’s all good, happens every August. Now that you're a low key ATL fan, let us take you to the game so you can see the Dirty Birds in person.
First Home Game: Sept. 7
Oakland - Coliseum
Ok, stay with us for this one. We know Oakland isn’t the best team in the league, but last season they weren’t the worst either (sorry Houston). We think you should train it to Oaktown because the fans are enthusiastic and spirited. Need another reason? Our stop is across the parking lot. How's that for convenience?
Route: Coast Starlight, San Joaquin and Capitol Corridor
First Home Game: Sept. 14
Denver – Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Allegedly, there are 10 other men on the field but we know your ride to Denver is all for #7 (and to hear Omaha! Omaha! in person). You're secret's safe with us. Just make sure to book early and enjoy views before the game.
Route: California Zephyr
First Home Game: Sept. 7
San Francisco – Levi’s Stadium
They made it to the NFC Championship game two years in a row. They have a feisty coach, talented inked up QB and are known for some football drama here and there. If that wasn’t enough, our station is walking distance from their brand new stadium. We're not sure if they’ll bring home the trophy this year, but we’re saying there’s a chance.
Route: Capitol Corridor
First Home Game: Sept. 17
Jacksonville- Everbank Field
It’s their 20th year in the league, and they came into 2014 guns blazing. They added a pool to the upper deck, had a great showing in the draft and are ready to make some noise. If you’re curious of their chances like we are, then book your ticket to Duval today.
Routes: Silver Service/Palmetto
First Home Game: Sept. 21
