The Joan C. Edwards Stadium is a football stadium located on the campus
of Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. It can hold 38,019 spectators and includes twenty deluxe, indoor suites,
wheelchair-accessible seating, a state-of-the-art press-box, fourteen concession areas, and sixteen separate restrooms, making
it a great place to see a game.
Joan C. Edwards Stadium is one of only two in NCAA Division I named for a woman. The other is at South Carolina. Due to
the immense popularity of the Marshall Thundering Herd among the Huntington locals, Joan
C. Edwards Stadium tickets can be very hard to come by. Do yourself a favor and get your tickets early to avoid missing
all the fun.
The stadium hosted the MAC championship game in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2002. The NCAA Division I-AA national championship
game was held at then-Marshall University Stadium several times in the 1990s, including in 1992 and 1996 -- the years when
the Thundering Herd won the national championship. Check out a few Joan C.
Edwards Stadium events very soon.
