Memorial Stadium (Oklahoma) History

The Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium is the Norman, Oklahoma home of the Oklahoma Sooners, one of the Big 12 football powerhouses and a team that tends to be blistering with playmakers on both sides of the ball from season to season. The stadium broke ground in 1921 and finally opened in 1923 and has been the Sooners' home as well as one of the most electrifying venues in college football ever since. It has been expanded several times, most recently in 2013. The 2013 expansion and renovation left memorial one of the biggest college stadium in the country and making it one of the most exciting places in the country to see a college football game.

But even though it's a state-of-the-art stadium that keeps up with the modern day, its history makes it one of the most unique venues you'll find anywhere. Two years after opening, the stadium was expanded by the addition of 16,000 permanent seats and officially named Memorial Stadium as a tribute to members of the university who had died in World War I. From there, as the Sooners program continued to grow and improve, Memorial Stadium soon became a major part of the local sports scene around Norma, Oklahoma, and that's not something likely to change anytime in the near future. Come out and see a big game at Memorial Stadium and you'll be a part of a tradition that goes back many generations.
