A year later, in 1977, the upper tier was completed to bring seating to 70,311. In 1988, 1,700 more seats were added to bring the facility to its current capacity.

  • Great venue to watch college football. Too bad Todd Graham is the head coach. It is clearly time for a change in Tempe. The cheerleaders add a nice level of enthusiasm to the proceedings. Go Sun Devils!
  • Nice outdoor stadium; with an amazing marching band, baton twirlers, fire works, cheerleaders, high energy and loyal fans. College football games are the best.
  • My favorite place. Love the reinvention. Just avoid the upper level seats. Fantastic view, however squished in like sardines.
  • The bathrooms are gross, it's too hot, and the sun is in your face everywhere. If you go, sit behind the mountain or under the second level, so that you can get some shade. Also, all of the seats are bleachers, so being a cushion.
  • I am here pretty frequently for different events and I have to say the parking sucks. No matter where you park it's a hike into that Stadium but it is a nice place now that they fixed it up.
