Spartan Stadium (formerly College Field, Macklin Field, and Macklin Stadium) opened in 1923 in East Lansing, Michigan, United States. It is primarily used for football, and is the home field of the Michigan State University Spartans. After the addition of luxury boxes and club seating in 2004–2005, the capacity of the stadium grew from 72,027 to 75,005—though it has held more than 80,000 fans—making it the Big Ten's sixth largest stadium.

After an hour we arrived at our seats as the game was starting! They need a better system or more elevators.
  • I have always loved the energy and excitement of this stadium. It looks a hell of a lot different than it did my first fall there back in 2002, and changes have certainly been for the better. There is no place in this country I'd rather be to watch college football!
