  • Great old stadium but in need of some upgrades. The bench seating is really uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Drink and food prices are way too high and lack variety. Sound system is poor. 
  • I went to the 2016 Labor Day classic with my friend and his family. Pretty good seats but if you want a great seat bring 2 or 3 people 
  • Parking is expensive but not as bad as the concession though. Bring lots of cash! Pulled pork was average. Burgers were decent. Pizza was meh at best and the most overpriced. Mini doughnuts were pretty decent.
  • We need a new stadium. This place is just good enough. WE NEED A NEW STADIUM.
  • As owner of A Laptop Shoppe I attend many of the Stampeders home games ,including the tail gate party. The staff and management should be complimented for managing all the services and parking efficiently.
  • Nice venue but people can get a little annoying at times
  • Old stadium but not too bad. Great location surrounding the stadium.
