5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Crisp fall evening, 92000 fans, two great University Marching Bands...the best college football atmosphere around.

“UGA Football Hard to Beat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Can be electrifying for a big game, but is hot and boring for a paid blowout. Hard to beat the experience of an excited crowd; but lots of folks who have had too much to drink.

“lousy sound system colors game”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This review could get me shot, as there are those here in Athens that worship at Sanford far more devoutly than church, however in my first experience there I was incredibly underwhelmed. Being a big college football fan, I like the whole experience. I was on the first upper deck, (not the high one), down low, near the 50 yard line. I never heard a thing over the speakers, which sounded like they were only coming from the scoreboard. Nice scoreboard, btw. I would have liked to have seen scores from other schools outside the SEC. Rest of the stadium seemed fine, and I liked the ample room inbetween my bleacher and the person in front of me. You can't blame the stadium for the crazy perky/high/drunk freshman girl in front of me, but that added to the experience for sure.

“The quintessential college football experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Awesome experience everyone in the south should have at least once. Excellent tailgating, passionate fans, and immersion in the SEC experience. Great location in the middle of campus across from the bookstore where you can buy a little something to remember your trip.

“Great stadium in the heart of SEC country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Sanford stadium is a great stadium to watch a game. All of the lower level seats are great views and it's nothing like being in the UGA atmosphere . If your not a fan it might be a little much, but you'll be converted shortly.
