I love coming to Sanford Stadium to see football games. The stadium doesn't have chairs, just bleachers. Also I do love you can see the inside of the stadium 100 yards away.

All seats have great views. Clean and up to date. Close to bookstore so you can get warm if needed. Football is great to see there.

Easy to take a look "between the hedges". Impressive stadium. A must see if you're a college football fan!

I may be a little bit biased, being a UGA grad, but Sanford Stadium is the best venue to watch college football. I have been in other college stadiums, and Sanford Stadium is unsurpassed. The fans are usually electric, especially for a big game, and can give opposing quarterbacks fits calling audible plays on the field. If you sit near... More

I work by the stadium and see it every day. If you are visiting athens and not going to a football game, then don't waste your time seeing the stadium: there's not much to see. Lots of empty seats and a field of grass and some hedges around the field that cover up the fact that there are fences there.... More

I did the game day here a few years ago. It's a good crowd and there's plenty to do at Sanford. Go see the UGA shrine in the corner of the building. There's a free tour available which is really good.

The atmosphere in Sanford Stadium is always motivating and upbeat, even when the game is not a major rivalry. When the big games are played here, it is unbelieveably incredible! People are friendly and fun, the concessions are good and the sporting events are always top notch. The surrounding tailgating parties are always extravagant.

The stadium continues to get more user friendly each year. They have ample concession stands and good service. As with any stadium, the snack bars and bathrooms have lines at high activity times like half-time and pregame. Every seat is a good one and there is also a large TV at the north end. The NCAA now allows colleges to... More

Enter from the north face (you know, from the Downtown fun side) and come on down College Street. This place rocks. They pat down; but, nothing like others. This place is very, very nice. Ticket shakedown every 25 yards - security on duty even after admittance - just to make sure one is on the right track. One concern: gotta... More
