This is a beautiful stadium built in 1924 and renovated in 2008. The huge wide screen at the end of the field is fantastic way to watch replays, even if the football game was a disaster. Neat to see a stadium that still has character and history.
Classic design features which have not been ruined like Soldier Field. Large clean restrooms. Colonnade seating is my favorite, drinks and Hickory River what more could you ask for?
The stadium was constructed shortly after WWI and is dedicated to our military lost during the war. Today the dedication has grown to include those lost in other wars, but it remains a terrific memorial to all.

My son is an incoming freshman at UIUC and will be playing football in this stadium, we visited the stadium while we're there dropping him off for school, it was what we thought it would be! The stadium is breathtaking when you are actually inside. Just looking at it from the outside is amazing also, it is so much history... 更多
Was there for Illinois college football game. Of course, half time is always a favorite. Decent concessions, very clean and orderly as this type of venue. Bathrooms are usually very tidy as well. We go several times a year and enjoy it. Hoping for a better football season this year. Go Illini!!
