Michigan Stadium, nicknamed The Big House, is the football stadium for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was built in 1927, at a cost of $950,000 and had an original capacity of 72,000[1]. Prior to playing football at the stadium, the Wolverines played on Ferry Field. Today, Michigan Stadium has an official capacity of 107,501, though football game attendance often exceeds 111,000 when bands, stadium staff, and others are added. The largest crowd in North American stadium history was 112,118 on November 22, 2003 for a game against Ohio State. This is also an all-time NCAA record for people at a football game.

It is the largest American football stadium, the fourth largest stadium in the world, and the 30th largest sports venue in general (which includes NASCAR and horse racing tracks, among others). [1] The one "extra seat" in its capacity was "reserved" by former head coach Fielding Yost for the then athletic director Fritz Crisler, although its location is not specified.[2] Home games are invariably sellouts, and residents of Ann Arbor are aware of "football Saturdays" because of the influx of traffic and business at local establishments.

Michigan Stadium was designed with footings to allow the stadium's capacity to be expanded beyond 100,000. According to the University of Michigan Library's and Athletics Department's history of the stadium, then-athletic director Fielding Yost envisioned a day where 150,000 seats would be needed. To keep construction costs low at the time, the decision was made to build a smaller stadium than Yost envisioned but include the footings for future expansion.[3] Fielding Harris Yost (April 30, 1871 - August 20, 1946) was a U.S. football coach. ...

History

Michigan Stadium's enormous size is not entirely apparent to outside observers, as it is constructed partially below grade, leaving only the upper 20 rows (in most sections) visible from the outside. The stadium's original capacity was 72,000, but Yost made certain to install steel footings that could allow for massive expansion. Initially, all seating consisted of wood bleachers. These were replaced with permanent metal seating in 1949 by Crisler, who had become athletic director. Longtime radio announcer Bob Ufer dubbed Michigan Stadium "The hole that Yost dug, Crisler paid for, Canham carpeted, and Schembechler fills every cotton-pickin' Saturday afternoon." Since 1975 - Bo Schembechler's seventh season as coach - the stadium has held over 100,000 fans for every home game. (The game against Indiana University on Oct. 25, 1975 was the last sub-100,000 attendance home game for Michigan.) Michigan's game versus Ball State University on November 4, 2006 was the 200th consecutive crowd of over 100,000 fans. Traditionally, when the game's attendance is announced, the public address announcer thanks the fans for "being part of the largest crowd watching a football game anywhere in America." The tradition was temporarily stopped in 1996, when Michigan Stadium's capacity was overtaken by that of Neyland Stadium, but resumed when it was expanded two years later. Despite its size, Michigan Stadium has a reputation for being relatively quiet; Some claim this is due to the lack of decks that would otherwise trap the sound on the field. There are very few or no other articles that link to this one. ... Don Canham (April 27, 1918-May 3, 2005) served as athletic director at the University of Michigan from 1968 to 1988. ...

Formal dedication of the new Michigan Stadium, October 22, 1927, against Ohio State University
Formal dedication of the new Michigan Stadium, October 22, 1927, against Ohio State University

On October 1, 1927, Michigan played Ohio Wesleyan in the first game at Michigan Stadium. It was an instant success, and Michigan prevailed easily, 33-0. The new stadium was then formally dedicated three weeks later in a contest against Ohio State on October 22, 1927. Though Michigan had spoiled the formal dedication of Ohio Stadium in Columbus just five years earlier, the Wolverines were victorious again, besting the Buckeyes 21-0 before a capacity crowd of 84,401.

From 1927 to 1968, the stadium's field was covered in natural grass. This was replaced with TartanTurf in 1969 to give players better traction. However, this surface was thought to be unforgiving on players' joints, and the stadium returned to natural turf in 1991. This too became problematic, as the field's below-surface location near the water table made it difficult for grass to permanently take root. The field was converted to FieldTurf, an artificial surface designed to give grass-like playing characteristics, in 2003. Year 1991 (MCMXCI) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display the 1991 Gregorian calendar). ...

Renovation plan

On June 21, 2007, the University's Board of Regents approved a $226 million renovation and expansion project for Michigan Stadium which is expected to be completed by 2010. The project includes replacement of some bleachers, widening of individual seats, widening of the aisles and installing hand rails, and the addition of a new press box, 83 luxury boxes, 3,200 club seats, raising its total seating capacity from 107,501 to more than 108,000.[2] This renovation plan has garnered much opposition from students, alumni, and fans around the country.[3] A disabled-veterans group filed a federal lawsuit against the university on April 17, because in their view the design of the project does not meet federal standards for wheelchair-accessible seating.[4] is the 172nd day of the year (173rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
