  • Ryan Field is the home of the Northwestern Wildcats football team and is located on the campus of Northwestern University. This stadium is also located in the town of Evanston, Illinois, about 15 mile...  more »
  • Saw the Michigan State game....triple overtime. Bring a seat cushion & a blanket if it's cold. Be sure to read the clear bag policy before going.  more »
  • Perhaps the smallest stadium in the Big10, therefore an easy one to navigate. Good sighlines & a very friendly crowd  more »

  • Pros: There's not a bad seat in the house. Restrooms were clean. Security wasn't obnoxious. Cons: The placement of the big screen is 100% ridiculous. I'm pretty sure only 40% of the spectators can see it. The seating is crammed. It's clearly an older stadium. One full of character but with the inherent accompanying issues. The biggest complaint is the lack of signage and the hostility of the staff post-game. We were rudely reprimanded for walking on the sidewalk when there was no signage, fence or staff marking out a restricted perimeter.
  • Great atmosphere! Chicken strips were great. The parking in the area is EXTREMELY limited. Your best bet is public transportation, or park in a campus lot and take a shuttle. I was lucky enough to find parking within a ten minute walk. If you have a permit you can park near the stadium lots.
  • Little small but a nice place to watch the Badgers beat the wildcats.
  • Cool vibe and I really enjoyed the tailgating experience. It's sort of like a high school stadium.
  • Ryan field is a great stadium to watch a game!! The Northwestern fans are great hosts. Highly recommend a visit
