Lincoln Financial Field, which is in South Philadelphia, is where the Eagles play their home games. The stadium can hold 69,176 people and has many amenities for fans, such as a rooftop bar and a play area where kids can interact with each other.

Head Coaches Nick Sirianni has been the team’s head coach since 2021. Before that, he worked as an assistant coach for several other NFL teams.
Rivalries The rivalry with the Cowboys is especially fierce, since both teams are among the best in the NFL and have played many memorable games against each other over the years.
The Eagles have a group of passionate, devoted fans who call themselves “Eagles Nation.” Fans are known for being loyal and passionate, and they often make it louder and more fun to play at home at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans also love the team’s mascot, which is called Swoop.
Even though Eagles fans love their team, they have been known to criticize the team and management when they think the team isn’t doing well.
