Memorial Stadium Nebraska History

Memorial Stadium was constructed in the late 1920s, and was made possible by generous donations from students, alumni, faculty and friends of the university. The stadium was named Memorial Stadium to honor the Nebraskans who died in the Civil and Spanish-American Wars and those who died in World War I. Native Nebraskans who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam were later honored as well. The facility only took 90 days to complete, and was dedicated in October of 1923. Since then, it has become the place to watch college football. It has one of the largest seating capacities in the country, and in 2013, more than 91,000 fans watched Nebraska play the University of Wyoming. So, go ahead and check it out for yourself and see why fans come back year after year.

Memorial Stadium Nebraska Events

Memorial Stadium is best-known as the home of the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team, and for good reason. The Huskers have one of the best programs in the sport of college pigskin, and fans love to pack the stands at this venue to see this squad hit the field. The Huskers have some tough competition coming into their stadium this season, but with a strong home crowd behind them their chance at winning improves dramatically. Nebraska will have a tough test on their hands on September 20th when the Miami Hurricanes come to town. The Canes bring with them some of the most prideful student-athletes in the nation, a team that will do anything to earn a victory, but the Huskers will look to send them back to Florida with a loss. On November 1st the Purdue Boilermakers will test their might against the Huskers and a great Big Ten matchup. There are some other great matchups to come in 2014, so peruse the schedule and head out to a game.

Lincoln, NE

Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska, and the second-most populous city in the state. Nicknamed the "Star City," Lincoln was originally founded as Lancaster in 1856. A little more than a decade later the village was renamed Lincoln and incorporated as such in 1869. Lincoln has grown considerably since then and is now a great city that features a variety of attractions that bring people to the area on a regular basis. The city is also home to the University of Nebraska, which serves as a major attraction for visitors and residents. The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team is one of the best programs in the nation, and home games are immensely popular.

Memorial Stadium Nebraska Seating Layout

Since the scarlet and cream first set foot inside Memorial Stadium, fans have enjoyed every moment of their experience. Over the years the stadium has undergone several expansions and renovations to make it even more fan-friendly. In the 1970s, the stadium was enclosed to add more seating; in the 1990s, luxury boxes were added, and in the 2000s, "Skyline Suites" were added as well as the eighth-largest video screen in college football. The capacity of Memorial Stadium is currently approximately 87,000.
