BB&T Field, Winston Salem

(4.7/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Probably the nicest and best small college football stadium. The atmosphere is great and the demon deacon riding in on the motorcycle is one of the greatest entrances to a home team out there. While the crowds are always small for most games even the games close to a sell out don't leave you feeling cramped. Traffic flow to and from the the games is moderate and unless there is a fender bender or breakdown one of the fastest post game exits. Ticket prices are very reasonable and the season ticket price is usually the best option if you plan on going to more than one game. The food options are very basic and usually over priced for what you are getting. I have never had a problem with any options I've tried. I would still recommend eating before you go or taking advantage of the ability to leave the stadium and reenter after the first quarter.
  • Very nice stadium, parking is the best, you will get out of the parking lot in 2 minutes. Always fun! #GODEACS
  • Fairly small in size but cannot go wrong with seating. Also has a grass field in the back of the enzone makes for a nice Saturday with the family (kids).
  • Not anything special but it's a nice arena with good service!
  • I love it!! To have a nephew play for WF it's a dream come true for him. But a blessing for me as a uncle
