FAU Stadium, Boca Raton

(4.3/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
FAU Stadium is a college football stadium located at the north end of the main campus of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton, Florida. Opened in 2011, it is home to the Florida Atlantic Owls football team and is intended to be the first part of a FAU's multi-use development project, called "Innovation Village."After selecting an architect in 2008, the university began to raise funds for the $70 million facility with the intent to begin construction in 2009. The $70 million stadium was funded through student fees, private donations, and naming rights partnerships, some of which have yet to be determined. After fundraising efforts slowed, the school delayed construction until 2010. The stadium opened when the 2011 Florida Atlantic Owls football team lost to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers on October 15, 2011.Starting in 2014, FAU Stadium will be home to the Boca Raton Bowl, a college football bowl game which will feature teams from the Mid-American Conference and in alternating years Conference USA and the American Athletic Conference.Also starting in 2014, FAU Stadium will be home to Major League Lacrosse's expansion team the Florida Launch.The playing surface was named Howard Schnellenberger Field, after the founding coach of the Owls football program, on August 20, 2014. Schnellenberger spent the final 11 seasons of his coaching career at FAU, retiring after the 2011 season.

  • Well lit stadium with plenty of parking and security! Not far from West palm!
  • Stadium seating- no benches. Full bar, premium seats, beer served throughout the stadium, pleasant atmosphere, and excellent food choices. 1.8 miles to the beach.
  • Home of the Owls! Great stadium with natural grass field, 29,419 seats all of them with back seats and aluminum floors. Stadium has really good amenities and a huge jumbotron. Go Owls!
