A historical landmark of Athens, GA and home of University of Georgia football. The best way to spend a Saturday with 95,000 of you closest friends. Go Dawgs, Sic'em.

Even though I am not a dawg fan, my wife is and wanted to see Sanford Stadium. Was disappointed they did not have tours where you go down on the field or near the hedges during off season. She wants me to rate it 5 stars so I will.

Even though I am married to an avid GEORGIA fan, with several of our daughters attending UGA, I had never been in the stadium. For years I wanted to attend just one game in the stadium for the experience of being there. We FINALLY went to the South Carolina game last fall, it was totally amazing! It was a RED... More

This stadium is fantastic! There is a refreshment to meet your wants/needs. Watching the Dawgs play between the hedges is the best way to spend any football Saturday.

By far and away the finest football stadium anywhere. Unless maybe you are a visitor which we have reserved seats for in the "higher up" sections.. Go Dawgs!!
