Autzen Stadium, Eugene
(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Autzen Stadium is an outdoor football stadium in the northwest United States, in Eugene, Oregon. Located north of the University of Oregon campus, it is the home field of the Oregon Ducks of the Pac-12 Conference. Opened in 1967, the stadium has undergone several expansions. The official capacity is 54,000, although attendance is routinely around 59,000 and has exceeded capacity for every game since the most recent expansion in 2002.HistoryPrior to 1967, the Ducks' on-campus stadium was Hayward Field, which they shared with the track and field team. However, by the 1960s, it had become apparent that the 22,500-seat stadium was no longer suitable for the football team. The Ducks only played three home games per year on campus in most years; with the exception of the Civil War, the annual rivalry game with Oregon State, games that were likely to draw big crowds (against schools like Washington and USC) were played north in Portland at the larger Multnomah Stadium. With the recognition that the football team had outgrown the campus facility and with popular support to play the entire home schedule in Eugene, Oregon athletic director Leo Harris led a campaign to build a new stadium on 90acre that the school had acquired for the purpose in the 1950s on his recommendation.

  • I've been to 2 Ducks football games here and it has been great. Both times we've driven over 15 hours one way to see the game, and despite us losing both times it has still been awesome. Unmatched atm...  more »

  • Autzen Stadium has a logical layout and fun atmosphere. Their concessions are widely available and facilities are kept clean. Go Ducks!
  • Awesome college stadium. One of my favorites to visit during college football season. They also have great food and beverages services on location. Although quite a lack of restrooms, all restrooms are porta potties which I find strange for such a huge stadium.
  • If you're an Oregon Duck fan, this is the place to be during football season. Great atmosphere, great fans, and just an overall great experience.
  • I recently attended an international soccer game here (Paris St-Germain v Internacional Milan) and had a great experience. Plenty of vendors, including local favorites like Dutch Bros. Coffee, and great food. During NCAA games for the Ducks there is NO alcohol served because of sanctions.
  • Great atmosphere if youre a ducks fan. Cool stadium.
