Twelve years removed from its $606 million renovation, Soldier Field remains one of the worst stadiums in the NFL, according to new rankings from The Sporting News.

In a ranking of all 31 stadiums, Soldier Field clocked in at 24th, just ahead of the Vikings’ TCF Bank Stadium and the Dolphins’ Sun Life Stadium. The Raiders’ Coliseum came in 31st.

Here’s what The Sporting News had to say about Soldier Field:

A dozen years after venerable Soldier Field went through a $606 million renovation, the Bears and their landlord, the Chicago Park District, are renovating concession spaces and developing The Den, a new upscale sports bar. In addition, Bear fans will enjoy new video boards this season, and the venue remains a heckler’s paradise. The 2003 reconstruction reduced the number of stadium parking spaces and tailgate spots. Fans parking remotely can grab a bite to eat at restaurants along Michigan Avenue and bars in the South Loop neighborhood.

Green Bay’s Lambeau Field took the top spot of the rankings, and the Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium was No. 2. The 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium rounded out the top three.
