New York’s new $1 billion stadium will be a massive undertaking.
But the Jets are hoping to tap into their existing cash reserves and get a $100 million windfall, according to the team.
The Jets announced Monday that they will sell $100,000 bills, $100 bills, and $100 dollar bills for the new stadium.
The new stadium will feature a retractable roof, and the stadium will include a retracting roof, the team said.
“This is a monumental undertaking for the city and a tremendous opportunity to transform the Jets brand and future success,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement.
The deal is expected to be finalized in the coming weeks, the New York Post reported.
“The New York City government and the Jets team are very excited about this exciting new project,” De Blasio said.
The $1.1 billion project, which is slated to open in 2018, will feature an open-air stadium with an outdoor scoreboard and retractable roofs.
The stadium will have a retractible roof for games, a retractive roof for practice, and a retraction roof for game-day activities, the Jets said.
New York officials have been working to get the team to the point where the stadium is fully built.
Last year, the city agreed to give the team $50 million in incentives for its plans, which included building the stadium in the shadow of the Empire State Building.
New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie, a Republican, called the deal a “historic moment.”
“We are in a position now to take the next step in the rebirth of New York,” Christie said in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday.
“It’s a great day for New York.”
