Spartan Stadium (formerly College Field, Macklin Field, and Macklin Stadium) opened in 1923 in East Lansing, Michigan, United States. It is primarily used for football, and is the home field of the Michigan State University Spartans. After the addition of luxury boxes and club seating in 2004–2005, the capacity of the stadium grew from 72,027 to 75,005—though it has held more than 80,000 fans—making it the Big Ten's sixth largest stadium.

  • Going here to cheer on the Spartans is always a thrill. Bathroom waits are better than they once were, concessions abundant. Only complaint is the confusing directions to get to certain areas. No...  more »
  • Go here and watch my Wolverines win. No better place to cheer for the maize and blue. Seriously though, it is a fun atmosphere and visitors generally are treated respectfully.  more »
  • We saw a great game on a classic fall day. MSU won - but we would have known that at home. The stadium is a great place to watch a game. The jumbotrons mean you don’t miss key bits of action. If.....  more »

  • Always have a great time at the football games. Great tailgating with family and friends. Love the atmosphere and commardorie! Little disappointed this time my dad was in a wheel chair and needed to use the elevator. Well, they only have one elevator that they were using. After an hour we arrived at our seats as the game was starting! They need a better system or more elevators.
  • I have always loved the energy and excitement of this stadium. It looks a hell of a lot different than it did my first fall there back in 2002, and changes have certainly been for the better. There is no place in this country I'd rather be to watch college football!
  • Great experience. Up in the nosebleed section but pretty good views to take in. Fast getting in even though there was a long line. Clean bathrooms. Had to park about a mile away. Road do get congested so plan for that wait or go early.
  • Great place to see Michigan State University Spartan's play football. The following picture was taken with just a little bit of zoom from Seat 17, row 32, in section 6. I'll be back. Go GREEN!
  • Its only the best football stadium in the Big Ten. To be honest I am somewhat biased. If going to a game here, I highly recommend you do your best to get a bleacher seat with your ticket. Multiple hours sitting on any bleacher can be a pain. They provide a seat with a small backrest if requested for a fee but DON'T try to bring your own. Seats and many other things are not allowed. Check the rules for your event. Truly though since the stadium has undergone renovation it's such a welcoming stadium. There's a Spartan statue for pics outside. There are many types of food and desert concessions, more than your average stadium. I'm pleasantly surprised with the upgraded bathrooms too. No more waiting in long lines for a stinky trough. It's a great place, do attend an event here.
