Jordan–Hare Stadium is the playing venue for Auburn University's football team located on campus in Auburn, Alabama. The stadium is named for Ralph "Shug" Jordan, who has the most wins as head coach of the University's football team, and Cliff Hare, a member of Auburn's first football team as well as Dean of the Auburn University School of Chemistry and President of the Southern Conference.On November 19, 2005, the playing field at the stadium was named in honor of former Auburn coach and athletic director Pat Dye. The venue is now known as Pat Dye Field at Jordan–Hare Stadium. The stadium reached its current seating capacity of 87,451 with the 2004 expansion and is the 10th largest stadium in the NCAA. By the end of the 2006 season, it was estimated that 19,308,753 spectators had attended a football game in Jordan–Hare. Jordan–Hare Stadium regularly makes lists of the best gameday atmospheres and most intimidating places to play.HistoryThe stadium, then known as Auburn Stadium, hosted its first game on November 10, 1939, between the Auburn and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football freshmen teams. The stadium was dedicated on Thanksgiving Day (November 30) 1939 before the first varsity game played in the stadium, a 7-7 tie with the University of Florida under Auburn head coach Jack Meagher. The Auburn-Florida game was originally scheduled for Dec. 2, 1939 in Montgomery. The game was rescheduled in order for the stadium to be dedicated on Thanksgiving Day, Auburn officials seemingly wanting the significance of the occasion to dovetail with America's established Thanksgiving Day football tradition, a plan nearly thwarted by Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Franksgiving" decree. Had Alabama not chosen to observe Thanksgiving on its original date, the stadium likely would not have been dedicated until 1940.

  • First class facility with an amazing tradition. Pregame is a great experience. You do not need to be an alumni to enjoy and appreciate all that comes with a fall Saturday spent at Auburn. The stadium has plenty of support staff to guide you around. Elevators get you up to the upper decks quickly. Lots of stadium food options. Clean restrooms with live feeds of the game. And then there is that HUGE big screen tv at the end of the south end zone...can't miss it.
  • One of the greatest places on earth. War Eagle
  • A beautiful stadium. Went to my first college football game here and was an incredible experience.
  • I didn't grow up around Auburn so I had no idea how passionate Auburn fans were. Going to an Auburn game redefined how I feel about college football. The facilities of the stadium are old but in great shape. Had no problem getting in, finding my seat or enjoying the game. Visit Jordan-Hare stadium if you ever get the chance.
  • Best place ever I love it ,it has great hospitality,great food , and great people #It`s great to be an Auburn tiger!
