Ryan Field History

The Northwestern Wildcats are sure to be right in the thick of the action this season, which makes Ryan Field the place to be all season long as the Wildcats look to make their move up the Big 10 standings. It's never easy in the same conference as Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and other powerhouses, but the Wildcats have plenty of talent on their roster from season to season and have no intention of going quietly this season either. 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, a former mayor of Evanston and overseer of the building project. In 1997, the venue 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 is still one of the very best places for big-time college football in the Chicago, Illinois area.
