“Go Dawgs!!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

My favorite place in Athens. No place like it. The atmosphere and tradition, is like no other in the south. True southern tradition.

“Good View, Bad Concessions!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

My wife and I were at Sanford Stadium last weekend for the Georgia v. South Carolina game. Carolina lost but I learned a long time ago that football is only a game and we lose some. We arrived in Athens on a chartered tour bus so we did not have to drive or search for parking and we had a good time, overall. Our seats were on row 19 of the top deck, right in the middle on the fifty yard line. Our view was unobstructed and it looked as though the other seat had clear sight lines, as well. The bathrooms were clean and there are escalators to get you to the 2nd and 3rd levels. However, there were a bunch of steps to get to the top deck and my wife has a knee problem so that was difficult. We could deal with that, though, as we expect to have long treks at a football stadium. The only problem was the concession stands on the top deck -- there were only 2 and the lines were very long all day. To top off the shortage of concession stands, the lines moved very slowly -- it took me 20 minutes to get a drink just before the end of the second quarter. Its a nice stadium and there are well organized shuttle buses to and from the stadium but be prepared for the long waits to get food or drink if you are on the top level.

“Jason Aldean Concert in Sanford Stadium”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Awesome venue. Had seats on the field. Great sound. Not a bad seat in the house. UGA needs to approve more concerts at this venue.

“UGA Rocks!!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I was attending a UGA football game at Sanford Stadium and enjoyed every minute of it!!! It's easy to get to and it's easy to locate your seat at the stadium. I also had the privilege of seeing Jason Aldean perform his first stadium concert at Sanford Stadium here!!! Go watch some awesome UGA football here when you get the chance!

“Best if visited in the Fall”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Great viewing in the bowl arena of such Fall spectacles as the World Famous Georgia Bulldogs live up to their legendary feats. Visit on September 7th in your full Bulldog regalia and see South Carolina utterly destroyed by the Junkyard Dogs. Then return on September 21st to see the Dogs chew through North Texas. This event is only rivaled by the utter destruction of some kitty cats from LSU on September 28th. Then these chomping Dogs rip through Missouri leaving only the bones of the defeated. The Bulldogs again continue to maul their victims between the hedges with sacrificial lambs of Appalachian State on the 23rd then the annual skinning of the Kentucky wildkitties on the 23rd. All of these festivities lead to the final and main event in Athens with total humiliation and swatting of those pesky little Yellowflies from that trade school on North Avenue in Atlanta.
