Jerry Jones isn’t the only owner with a new palace . . .

This is a list of stadiums that have been constructed (with the year the team first moved in), as well as a list of stadiums that have undergone extensive renovations totaling more than $250 million (with the year the renovations were completed). In all, 18 teams have brand new stadiums, while four have extensively renovated. The only new stadium currently in the works is the new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara, tentatively set to begin construction in 2012 to open in time for the 2014 season.
