About Beaver Stadium
Around 150 miles east of Pittsburgh, smack dab in the center of the wilds of Pennsylvania, Beaver Stadium on the grounds of Penn State University in University Park stands tall and proud over the landscape. This outdoor football stadium absolutely dominates – at more than 106,000 seats, it’s the second-largest venue of its kind in the Americas and the fourth largest worldwide. If there’s ever been a place to catch collegiate football, it’s right here!
The History of Beaver Stadium
Beaver Stadium was officially opened in 1960 to provide a better environment for college football than its original venue. That football stadium, known as Beaver Field, had been opened in 1909 and was across campus, making it both too small and too inconvenient to get to. The new stadium opened with a capacity of around 46,000, much better than its predecessor, and over the decades this figure would slowly but surely increase with each renovation and expansion to its current massive capacity.
What makes Beaver Stadium Events So Special?
Beaver Stadium is absolutely huge. It’s not the most modern, or the most comfortable – something that means it’s likely to be slated for a major renovation sometime within the next decade, or even knocked down completely and replaced with something else. This means that the stadium, in its current form, may be history soon. So unless you want to miss out on being one of more than 106,000 screaming football fans, get yourself some tickets today!
