BB&T Field, Winston Salem

BB&T Field is a football field in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field of the Wake Forest University Demon Deacons. The stadium opened in 1968 and holds 31,500 people. It is the smallest football stadium, by capacity, in both the ACC, and in all BCS Automatic Qualifying conferences.In September 2007, Wake Forest University and BB&T, which is headquartered in Winston-Salem, announced a 10-year deal to officially rename the stadium "BB&T Field" starting with the first 2007 home game against Nebraska. The deal is part of a larger development process to secure funds for stadium renovations and upgrades.The former stadium name of Groves Field goes back to the original stadium at the original location of Wake Forest . The old stadium was financed by Henry Groves, and when the school announced the move to Winston-Salem, he and his brother, Earl, decided to make a further contribution to the school to keep their name on any new stadium. After moving to Winston-Salem, many games were played in Bowman Gray Stadium while the project to build a new stadium met with many setbacks. It was not until 1966 that the final fundraising was done, and the stadium opened in September 1968, with the Deacons losing to old rival NC State. The former Groves Stadium became the home football field for Wake Forest High School and is today known as Trentini Stadium.

  • Very nice stadium. It had been upgraded and modernized quite a bit since the last time we were there. The concession stands in the concourse and around the outside are plentiful but it seems like ther...  more »

  • This football stadium is the home of the Wake Forest University Demon Deacons football team. Try to plan parking before arrival. The stadium is updated and comfortable for watching games day or night.  more »

  • Top notch facility. Easy parking, good food and drink options, though a bit on the pricey side. My only complaint is my team, NCSU, lost a heartbreaker to the home squad! Great place to enjoy a college football game.
  • They had some of the rudest staff, and were very unorganised for the NC state football championship. I visited several high schools that handled games and band competitions that handled themselves a lot better than the staff at Wake Forest handled everything. Very disappointed with our treatment. Hope we never have to return.
  • It was an awesome experience even though Wake Forest University lost to Duke Blue Devils it was still awesome especially since I'm a Blue Devils fan. The crowd the facility the lights the cameras it was great
  • Best college football venue in North Carolina! No bad seats. Superior food from either Deacon Tower restaurants or premium food trucks inside the fence along the walk ways.
  • Fun times! Great memories coming here as a kid with my sister and parents and now with my boys, my sister, her kids, and my parents to cheer on the Deacs. Enjoying fun times with amazing people!❤🏈🏈
