Stanford Stadium History
The Stanford football team knows that Stanford Stadium is the secret weapon that gives
them a significant home field advantage on Saturdays during the college football season. Packed with tens of thousands of
die hard fans, Stanford Stadium has earned the reputation of being one of the hardest places for opponents to play in all
of college football and one of the best and most intimate venues for fans. The current Stanford Stadium opened in 2005, replacing
the previous Stanford Stadium which was built in 1921. Over the years some of the best players in college football have taken
the field at Stanford Stadium both as members of the Cardinal and representing Stanford's PAC 12 foes. Be sure to get your
