Lincoln Financial Field

Lincoln Financial Field, “The Linc”, on Pattison Avenue between 11th and South Darien streets in South Philadelphia (and part of the South Philadelphia Sports Complex), is the present home field of the National Football League’s Philadelphia Eagles.
The team’s name and eagle logo came from the symbol of the National Recovery Administration of the New Deal– see
The team then played at the Baker Bowl, a field they shared with the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball.
