Seem better days...

It's a decent enough old stadium, but it's past its prime. Not particularly comfortable or atmospheric. They have done some cosmetic work on it, but it's putting a bandaid on it... read more

It's a decent enough old stadium, but it's past its prime. Not particularly comfortable or atmospheric. They have done some cosmetic work on it, but it's putting a bandaid on it. It's old and concrete, not the best place to watch games!

Enjoyed a stampeders game last night. Great music playing outside when we are in. Loved our seats.. The lady selling our tickets gave us family fun zone prices in another section just so we could all sit together. The only bad part is that our team ..saskatchewan roughriders lost lol!!

No local beer. No craft beer. Not very impressed. You would think they would have craft beer available from local brewers.

Alberta craft beer should be sold at McMahon. Season ticket holders unite. We deserve Local craft beer.

My family and I were so lucky to have a box here for the Calgary Stampeders game on Canada Day. We were visiting from Ireland and the entire experience was just amazing for us from start to finish. We had such an amazing night...and of course Calgary won!!!!!

We saw a CFL game at the stadium. It is quite old, but is well kept. Tip 1: If you get seats near the end zones, you will be sitting on uncomfortable benches. Make sure when buying tickets you check if you will have real seats or not. Tip 2: There is no parking at the stadium. They do have... More

Two stadium geeks managing to sneak a look inside were happy! Stadium opened to help out the dislocated Fort McMahon fire victims, hope it all works out for them.

Big old stadium. Cool to watch Uni or Stampeders games. The metal, bench seats can get really cold, especially in Calgary.

We had a great time here, older stadium, good atmosphere and just a good feel walking in. It would have been a 5 star, but the concessions area is getting tired and it would be nice to go somewhere to warm up once in a while. We had fun, and the tailgate area was awesome, I hope they don't loose... More

Older building, not much for amenities. Outside football so dress warm for the weather. It is these games that make if fun. Food - whatever. Poor and expensive but what you expect now a days. Most of the staff in the concessions are volunteers earing money for their charity, be nice and tip them. The office staff and management, not... More
