Ryan Field History

If you're looking for a little top-tier college football, you're definitely in the right spot, as Ryan Field is always one of those venues that is in the middle of one exciting matchup or another throughout the Northwestern Wildcats regular season. Opened in 1926, Ryan Field is able to accommodate 47,130 cheering fans of the Northwestern University Wildcats. Prior to 1997, the stadium was coined Dyche Stadium, named after William Dyche of the class of 1882. He was the former mayor of Evanston and overseer of the building project. In 1997, the infamous turf assumed the name of Ryan Field in honor of the family of Patrick G. Ryan, who was then the chairman of Northwestern's board of trustees.

In its heyday, Dyche Stadium was considered one of the finest college football stadiums in the nation, and still brings together an amazing college football tradition with modern amenities to be the perfect place for a slice of Northwestern football. The Chicago Bears hosted their debut home game of the 1970 season at Dyche Stadium as a test, as the NFL had forced the Bears to move out of Wrigley Field because of Wrigley's limited seating capacity. With a rich history and plenty of top-tier matchups on the schedule from year to year, Ryan Field remains the place to be if you're looking for some football excitement in the Evanston, Illinois area.
