Where Grange and Butkus played
2021年10月
As a 1962 graduate of the University of Illinois, I recall sitting at the top of the upper deck on the east side of Memorial Stadium to watch the football games as a freshman in 1958. Remember Army's Lonesome End? Few stadiums can boast of the history of Memorial Stadium, which was opened in 1923 as a memorial to the university students who died in World War I with their names engraved on the nearly 200 pillars surrounding the stadium's facade. It was dedicated on October 18, 1924, when Illinois hosted Michigan for homecoming and Red Grange scored five touchdowns during a 39-14 victory that was one of the greatest single-game performances in football history. As a reporter for the Champaign-Urbana Courier in 1963, I covered Dick Butkus and an Illini team that won the Big Ten championship and the Rose Bowl. Today, the stadium's capacity has been reduced from 70,000 to 60,670, the playing surface is named in honor of former coach Bob Zuppke, a 12-foot tall statue of Red Grange stands on the west side of the stadium, a new press box and luxury suites are located atop the west balcony, a color scoreboard has been installed at the north end of the stadium, more seating was added to the north and south ends of the stadium and tailgating has become a popular feature of game day on the west side of the stadium. Unfortunately, the university's longtime symbol, Chief Illiniwek, a popular halftime attraction who was as much a part of Illinois' marching band as the band itself, is gone.

Big Stadium
2020年7月
This stadium is the home to the Fighting Illini. It is a nice mix of old and modern in design. I like the pillars. There are parks around most of it. Would be a great place to see a game.

nice upgrades
2019年11月
It had been a few years since I set foot in Memorial Stadium. I can only take so much bad football.
I was impressed with the upgrades to the stadium since my last visit. While the Illini got whacked badly by a Northwestern team they were supposed to crush, at least beer sales helped ease the pain. No more sneaking in booze...like I heard other people do.

Memorial Stadium is a great place - family friendly- to see an Illini football game. Seats are great in most any part of the stadium.

Have you heard the story about the bulldozer?
2019年8月
Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois, the home of the University of Illinois' football team, has been steeped in legend ever since Red Grange scored five touchdowns in a 39-14 homecoming victory over Michigan on the day the stadium was officially dedicated on October 18, 1924. Celebrated sportswriter Grantland Rice, who created the legend of "The Galloping Ghost of Illinois," said it was one of the greatest single-game performances in football history. Grange's statue now stands on the west side of the stadium. There have been other changes since Grange's day, since I was a student in 1958-1962, since Dick Butkus led the Illini to the Rose Bowl. A memorial to the university students who died in World War I, whose names are engraved on the nearly 200 pillars surrounding the stadium's facade, it was completed in 1923 at a cost of $1.7 million. It once had a capacity of over 70,000 with double-decked stands on the east and west sidelines. The single-decked horseshoe around the south end zone and a large student section near the north end zone were added later. Did you know that during the original construction a bulldozer sank into the field during a heavy rain. It was decided that the expense of removing the bulldozer would have been greater than leaving it buried under the field. It remains there today. In 1967, the old, dilapidated, green-painted, wooden press box at the top of the west balcony was replaced by an ultra-modern, state-of-the-art, glass encased press box. In 2013, the main scoreboard was replaced by a new Daktronics video board that measures 36 by 96 feet. But I still miss some things...like the student card sections in the lower east stand and the upper west balcony and Chief Illiniwek, whose presence with the Illini Marching Band at halftime was an emotional experience for thousands of students and alumni.

Fantastic place for an outdoor commencement exercise
2019年5月 • 家庭
Memorial Stadium is the home to "The Fighting Illini". It is located on the northeast corner of S 1st St. and W. Kirby Ave. on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. The stadium seats nearly 61,000 and was built in 1923 as a memorial to those from Illinois who died in World War I and later in 2002, those from Illinois who died during World War II were added. Though it is primarily used for football games, the 2019 commencement (the 148th) was held here. There were great seats to watch the commencement of the approximately 4,650 graduates. The only two issues - the weather wasn't very co-operative, though it did not rain. And there were not enough staff to keep people from standing in front of others in the stands.
