Went here with our son for Family Weekend. We had to walk about 6 blocks to get to the stadium. They gave us the nosebleed seats. I'm no spring chicken- so several flights of stairs was taxing. Maybe they do that so you spend more on drinks. The food is overpriced. But, the experience is worth a Million! I vote... More

Home of the Dawgs...love Sanford Stadium and UGA. The place is electric between the hedges! Nothing like the experience and a lot of fun during rivalry weekends! The only downside is the hotels in Athens gouge you during game day weekends if you stay overnight.

There is nothing...and I mean NOTHING...like being in Sanford Stadium for a UGA home football game. The stadium is everything a college football stadium should be. I brought my son to his first game this year and he loved everything about this place. We were able to come back the day after the game and walk around and see some... More

Sanford Stadium is an awesome place to attend an SEC football game. The atmosphere is electric, especially when the Dogs are doing well. TV is no substitute for attendance at the live game. The high seats are a little ways from the field, but the giant screen and replays keep everyone up to date on the happenings. Every football fan... More

This extravagance which seats some 90,000 people is used 6 times per year according to the local tour guide. It serves as a show-piece to the U. of Georgia's apparent philosophy that the throwing of and catching of balls is the penultimate educational goal of this school.

I walked by Sanford Stadium, butI didn't attend a game on this trip. I have attended games here on 4 separate occasions, and I can tell you it is a great place to watch a football game.

There is nothing...and I mean NOTHING...like being in Sanford Stadium for a UGA home football game. The stadium is everything a college football stadium should be. Be sure to check out the little cemetery dedicated to the Bulldog's mascot, UGA. It's a little creepy, but unique. Go Dawgs!

I like to go to Sanford Stadium to watch UGA beat up on opposing teams. If you are young, the student section is where you want to be. Be sure to have pre-game drinks if you are a normal college student.

It's big. It's loud. It's obnoxious. UGA's Sanford stadium is an intimidating place for players and fans of football alike, but a great place to watch college football on Saturdays. Views from the stands are good, and the atmosphere is exactly what you'd expect from SEC fans. However, the concessions are hard to access, and big games can be very... More
