I attended the Clemson-UGA football game. I am a Clemson fan and the UGA fans were very friendly. Sanford Stadium is awesome. Great traditions and a proud fanbase. It is a must see/visit for any college football fan. Parking is a challenge, we paid $20 to park on Baxter street and walked a decent bit, but got out easily.

Tough walk in flip flops, but worth it. The stadium is great! Everyone in Athens was super friendly to this Clemson fan ;-)

Your bucket list should contain "Attend a UGA home game Between the Hedges." There is nothing like the quake the UGA fans create during a Bulldawg home game. First game of the 2014 has already proven what is yet to come.

This place is massive now. I attended my first UGA game in 1979. We sat on the hill leading up to the (train) tracks at the then open end portion of the stadium. It only cost $1 each to sit there. You could bring all the alcohol you could carry to your seat back then. Sanford Stadium only held 60-70... More

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.
