Attending an NFL game requires a lot of work. A trip to the stadium. Expensive and often elusive parking. Compulsory tailgating. Unavoidable traffic or long waits for public transportation. A wager or two on NFL betting sites. Between the journey to and from the event and the game itself, 60 minutes of pro football often translates into a full-day adventure.

Imagine living right across the street from your favorite team’s home stadium. Or renting a swanky, brand-new, state-of-the-art apartment just a five-minute walk from the main entrance. Or having the front door to your family home just around the corner. Imagine placing your wagers on sports betting apps at 12.45 p.m., then walking to your seat for the 1 p.m. kickoff.

That’s all very real for multiple NFL teams and their fans. 

An examination of all 30 NFL stadiums by Bookies.com has found the closest residence to each one.

The closest residence to any NFL stadium, based on the measurement from midfield to front door, is an apartment complex at 590 1st Ave S in Seattle, resting just across the road from Lumen Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks. The closest unit in that building is just 478.79 feet from midfield at Lumen Field. 

To find each residence in this story, Bookies.com determined the distance using the Google Earth and Google Maps tools, combined with data from multiple housing and apartment rental websites, and public real estate records. 

The NFL stadium with the furthest "closest" residence from midfield in our survey is Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. While several hotels and resorts rest on the nearby Vegas Strip, the nearest full-time residence is an apartment unit at the complex located at 5444 Danville Lane. That’s 3,975.82 feet from the midfield point of the Raiders Stadium. 

Rooms With A View

Several NFL teams have residences across the street from their home stadium’s entrances/main parking lots. Among those are US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Lambeau Field in Green Bay, and Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Each of those stadiums can be reached by a walk of five minutes or less.

An apartment community called 1919 Mile High in Denver is directly north across the street from the Empower Field at Mile High handicapped parking lot. You can tailgate from your balcony. The stadium views are sweet. 

Here is the rundown of the 30 NFL Stadiums listed with the address of the closest available full-time residence.

NOTE: Our rundown list ranks each stadium by the distance of their closest residence. There are only 30 NFL stadiums for the 32 NFL teams.

The Rundown

Here are the closest residences to each NFL stadium listed by their address, what type of residence it is, the linear distance from the residence to midfield of the stadium as measured in feet, and the walking distance to the closest stadium entrance, as measured via Google Maps.
