“A Great Place To Watch College Football”

Amon G. Carter Stadium
Ranked #28 of 167 things to do in Fort Worth
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I recently attended the Texas vs. TCU football game, and the experience was great (except for the 3 hour rain delay). The newly renovated stadium was a wonderful venue for a game, and the home team fans were friendly.

With the newest upgrades Texas Christian University has made, the Stadium now seats about 48,000 fans. While growing, this is still significantly less than other Big XII schools. However, the more intimate atmosphere makes the action feel even closer.

Parking is not easy to find around the Stadium; however, free shuttles are offered from locations around Fort Worth. I found this to be very convenient.

Everything about this modern stadium is first class. Makes one wish they were among the rich alumni with the suites! General seating isn't bad though. Go Frogs!

My wife and I attended a football game between Texas and TCU. The parking situation was odd. There must be a public parking area somewhere, but not knowing, this, we followed signs on the side of the road which led to residential areas. There was parking there, but it was homeowners charging for parking in their front yards. We ended up parking along the street a bit farther out. The walk wasn't too bad. The stadium itself is very nice. Being Texas fans, we were greeting very nicely by the staff at the gate, welcoming us to TCU. All the seats have back rests, which is nice. Unfortunately there was a lightning delay, which was announced, and then it proceeded to rain heavily. Knowing that thunderstorms were in the area, the staff should have been better prepared for crowd control. It took a good 15 minutes to get out of the stands, so we were soaked. I think what happened was that all the people were getting piled up with nowhere to go, so we were at a stand still for most of the time. The security and others should have been directing people where to go from the start. If there was an emergency, I don't know if we would have made it out. That being said, I hope they learned something from it. The delay lasted 3 hours, but they had the World Series on TV by the snack bar, while we were just standing around. Unfortunately, being cold and wet, we waited for the rain to let up, and had to leave the game before it restarted.

While the East side may at times be very hit due to the Sun it is a great place to see the field. TCU should offer free water or let you take water into stadium on excessive temperature games

The Texas Christian University Horn Frogs now have a very nice place to play their home field football games at. The stadium has been totally redone and added on to. It's a wonderful place to go see a great team play the game.
