While attending a Notre Dame - Boston College football game as a fan of the visiting team, the BC/Alumni Stadium staff were friendly, helpful and overall outstanding. The recent addition of beer/wine sales during games is an excellent plus, particularly for those of us that...More

This place is old and not well kept. The concessions are limited in variety. The restrooms are old and worn and there are not enough of them.

While the stadium has been renovated & updated in recent years, it is still too small (about 41-42,000) and needs a lot of improvements. To say parking is bad is an understatement. there is none for visitors and virtually none for home team fans. Most...More

We attend football games here every other year when our team comes to town to play Boston College. It's a comfortable stadium, with great food options. There is essentially no parking available, so on game day the college operates a large fleet of school buses...More
