Memorial Stadium at the University of Illinois


Memorial Stadium, home to Fighting Illini Football, seating 60,670, was built in 1923 as a memorial to Illinois men and women who gave their lives for their country during World War I. Their names appear on 200 columns that support the east and west sides of the stadium. For the 2013 season, a new high-definition video display measuring 36 feet tall by 96 feet wide was installed in the south horseshoe.
