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

  • Classic horseshoe shaped college football stadium. I had season tickets to the home games here in the upper deck card section my first year then on the lower deck on the 50 yard line after that. I saw many players who later became pros play here. This was when Ohio State and Michigan were the powerhouses. I saw Archie Griffin, the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner, play in this stadium. I was also there to see Red Grange honored on the 50 year anniversary of his memorable performance that originally dedicated Memorial Stadium in 1924. These are memories that last a lifetime.
  • We went to the meet and greet for the Illini football team. They were so very wonderful. We stayed for a bit of the movie. Such a wonderful night
