Amazing and historic stadium. just an awesome field and awesome views of the mountains from the stands. You can hear the stadium on big plays everywhere in boulder. Could use an upgrade in terms of the amenities (wish they sold beer!) but otherwise its great. Stinks the Buffs haven't been good in awhile!

The Buffs aren't very good these days, but that doesn't mean you should skip Folsom Field. It has hands down the most beautiful stadium view I've ever seen as it looks onto the Flat Irons and base of the Rocky Mountains. The atmosphere is great as Ralphie the Buffalo storms onto the field in what is one of the finest... More

I have been to about 10 college football stadiums. I would rate this one as average as far as atmosphere. The fans of course are rude to oppossing fan base. The stadium is nice, not very loud.

I have been to several college football stadiums and have to say Folsom Field is simply average. The view of the mountains in the background is spectacular, but the stadium and surroundings are average. It is not a bad university, but small and insignificant compared to the rest of the Big 12 and Pac 12.

The Romans had their amphitheatre and Boulder has its Folsom Field. We watched this being constructed and marvelled as we saw it emerge. Strolling by evokes memories of Graduations and Boulder Boulder finish lines! With both boys graduated and hardly another race left in me, it's great to just walk by and reminisce.

This is a great place to go for a college football game. Yes, this place has had a reputation of poor treatment of opposing fans in the past. However, those days are really in the past. There is a great gameday atmosphere outside and inside the stadium. The trick is finding a parking spot. I usually recommend parking at the... More

This is an eye sore even from the mountains. It is a pity that the University is not required to abide by the environment policies that keep Boulder much more environment and people friendly. The lights from the stadium ruin the night sky from 15 or more miles away. The noise can be a problem as well. No excuse for... More

Folsom Field is the home of the University of Colorado football team. The stadium is not that large, holding approximately 53,500 seats. As such, you have a more intimate feel than larger stadiums found elsewhere. The stadium is located on the university campus, which has both its advantages and disadvantages. You have the option to walk around the campus prior... More

This field is home to the University of Colorado's Buffaloes. It is a beautiful and extremely well maintained field. The Buffs won their first game in Denver so hopefully they will keep it up at their own field. Stop by and see a game and support CU. Go Buffs!

So I am biased; I am a Buff fan. I didn't attend CU, but I love the beauty of the location of this stadium. Yes it is getting old and needs a lot of fixing up, but sitting there on a fall Saturday watching a football game helps me forget the current status of the team! You don't have to... More
