The History of Jordan-Hare Stadium
Named for Shug Gordon and Cliff Hare, two legendary football players from Auburn University, Jordan-Hare Stadium was built in 1939 to replace their tiny little football field that was so small they couldn’t host more than one home game a year. When it opened its doors, it was known as Auburn Stadium, but in 1949, to coincide with its first renovation and expansion, it was renamed Cliff Hare Stadium. Shug Gordon had his name added to the venue in 1973, and the rest – after dozens more renovations and expansions – is history.
