A new Stanford Stadium was unveiled in 2006, making the Home of Stanford Football one of the premier college football facilities in the nation. Originally built in 1921, Stanford Stadium played host to many historic events including the Super Bowl XIX, men’s and women’s World Cup Soccer matches, Olympic soccer competition, Presidential nomination, Track & Field, and numerous college football games.
The $100 million project on the new stadium began on November 26, 2005, moments after Stanford’s final game. The project was completed in an unprecedented 42-weeks, in time to host the Cardinal’s 2006 home opener versus Navy on September 16.
The state-of-the-art stadium is set in a park-like setting among groves of eucalyptus and oak trees.
