FALCON STADIUM

GRB-645

Falcon Stadium is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It is the home field of the Air Force Falcons of the Mountain West Conference. It also serves as the site for the academy's graduation ceremonies each spring.

Falcon Stadium opened in 1962, at a cost of $3.5 million, and has a current seating capacity of 52,480. The first game was on September 22, 1962, when Air Force Falcons defeated Colorado State 24–0. Until that time, from 1956-61, Air Force played its home games at various sites across the state. Most games were played at the University of Denver's DU Stadium, but several were played in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and CU's Folsom Field in Boulder.
