Wifi is spotty and with all the cell phones trying to post/text/update it gets worse! Bathrooms aren't the best. Food lines are long (but they would be for 90k plus fans) trying to get a drink and a hotdog! Cost for food/drinks is on par with the rest of the sports world...but the hotdog quality could be better for the... More

We didn't actually see a game here--at least not in the last 52 years, but we wanted to view the current edition from outside. It is most impressive and is soon to undergo another renovation and enlargement. The campus is still lovely, and the new buildings and improvements keep the same flavor of the original buildings. The roads are very... More

Sanford is excellent. It is always clean and energetic. Parking is tough, but if you don't mind a walk you will be fine. We went to a game and had fun. Security was doing an excellent job keeping everyone safe and removing troublemakers.

gameday is the best day! Sanford holds more than just Dawgs, It holds history and tradition too. I created "Crowns of Glory" project; Sinkwich, Trippi and Herschel Walker...add in the voice of the Dawgs Larry Munsun and you have the shoulders of Giants that we stand on! Go Dawgs!!!

If you are into college football this is on the short list of top ....whatever. I'm in the camp that it's setting, size, and Vibe gets it into top 5 status of my visits. The whole UGA mascot thing is awesome. Great spot

If you like college football then you will love a Saturday afternoon at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. tailgating is second to none. A great way to spend a Saturday with family and friends.

Home of the University of Ga Bulldogs football team. Suggestion to get in early to beat the crowd and watch the team warm up. Seats in the upper deck can get very hot at times

Going to an UGA game is an awesome experience. People are nice, food service folks are nice, it's clean, bathrooms aplenty, etc. I sure do miss the days when one could sit on the tracks and watch the game; could've saved some money if I could. Overall, a excellent professionally managed venue.

They have football games down to a science. Very organized and efficient. Many choices for food and multiple bathrooms.
