UNC-CH recently reduced the number of seats from a little over 60,000 to approx. 51,000. The new individual seats are far better than the old ones but attendance by the home team fans is still absurdly low. Based on the new seating capacity there couldn't...More

The stadium is a little old but the seats were comfortable. I thought the food was somewhat uninspiring but the students seemed to love their Bojangle boxes... We took advantage of the park and ride. For $5.00 round trip (each) we were transported to the...More

Kenan is an older stadium that has recent updates. While it holds 66,000 it doesn't appear that large when compared to Carter Finely in Raleigh which holds 54,000 thousand. You will be surrounded by a sea of Tar Heel Blue as it should be. The...More

Today, I went to the stadium for my son’s graduation. I have been once before to a Football game. Both were great times.It was hot so the hydrating stations were nice. The bathrooms were very clean and the staff were helpful.

We went to this stadium to watch Duke women play UNC at lacrosse. The lax stadium is still being built so they opened up this one. It was free to get in and the staff allowed us to bring snacks and my wife to bring...More

Unique in that the remodels/renovations make the stadium appear as though ‘patch-worked’ together when empty. One side, and both end zones, feature chair back seating. Nice. The other looks pretty rough - students. Concourses and exterior need updating.

In full disclosure, I have been a volunteer usher here for many, many years. Overall, the venue is picturesque and the staff work hard to maintain a family atmosphere. I understand at other college football stadiums around the country, the percentage of drunk and obnoxious...More

Attended as a visitor. This stadium has some dead viewing spots and the seats are not comfortable. It reminds me of some high school stadiums. Bathrooms are old and outdated. Most ACC schools have spent money updating their stadiums, but I guess all the money...More

I have been a season ticket holder for decades. Kenan Stadium was built in 1927 and has had several very tasteful additions added since then; now seats 66,000+. The stadium was built into a dell and may not rise higher than the pine trees around...More

The only place for visitors to tailgate is at the Friday Center. Take the Hy 54 exit from I40. From there you can catch a shuttle to get to about 1/4 miles from the stadium. That is the best you can do since there is no... More
