Stadium Information 

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 Herbert Hoover's 1928 presidential nomination acceptance speech, US-USSR track & field meet in 1962, several Olympic soccer matches in 1984, Super Bowl XIX, FIFA World Cup soccer matches is 1994, FIFA Women's World Cup soccer matches in 1999, several San Jose Earthquakes MLS soccer matches, and of course, numerous college football games.

The $100 million new stadium project began on November 26, 2005, moments after Stanford's final game of the season versus Notre Dame.  The project was completed in an unprecedented 42 weeks, in time to host the Cardinal's 2006 home opener versus Navy on September 16, 2006.

The state-of-the-art stadium is set in a park-like setting among groves of eucalyptus, oaks, and redwoods.
