Opened in 1967, Roos Field is located on the campus of Eastern Washington University and is the home of the Eastern Washington Eagles football team. The venue has approximately 8,700 permanent seats, but temporary bleachers can be brought in during major events to increase the capacity to 12,000. When the stadium first started hosting football games, it was called Woodward Field in honor of a former coach. In 2010, the stadium was renamed after Michael Roos, an alum and former player who went on to play in the NFL and supported the conversion of the stadium's grass to turf. The turf, which was installed in 2010, is colored red, one of the school's colors, making it a unique playing surface. Another major renovation took place in 2004 to upgrade the seats, press box and locker room. To watch the gridiron action, get your Roos Field tickets at StubHub.
How is Roos Field seating arranged?
Seats are located to the west, north and east sides of the field. The student section takes up most of the seats on the west sideline with reserved seats located above their section. Reserved seats are located around both 20-yard lines, premium reserved seats are situated around the 30-yard lines and premium seats with chairbacks are centered around the 40- and 50-yard lines. General seating, which is not reserved, makes up the north and east sections. If you do sit in the north section, you'll be next to the lively marching band.
Is there a VIP section?
The VIP section is located next to the press box, above the west bleachers. There are loge reserved seats as well as accommodations in the Eagle Club.
Are there concessions?
There are three concessions stands at the stadium. One is behind the scoreboard near the south end zone, one is on the opposite end behind the north end zone and the other is located behind the press box. Traditional snacks like nachos and hot dogs are offered as are heartier dishes such as barbecue beef sandwiches and chicken and rice. The on-site beer garden opens 90 minutes before kickoff and continues serving until the game begins. It re-opens at halftime for a short period.
