Product Description

WALDO STADIUM

GRB-952

Western Michigan Broncos (NCAA) (1939–present)

Waldo Stadium is a stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It is primarily used for football, and is the home field of the Western Michigan University Broncos. The stadium was built at a cost of $250,000, and it opened in 1939 with a 6-0 win over Miami University. The cost for Waldo Stadium also included the construction of Hyames Field, the school's baseball stadium directly west of the football field. The stadium is named for Dwight B. Waldo, first president of the school.

A Waldo Stadium-record crowd of 36,361 saw the Broncos defeat Indiana State University 56-0, in 2000. Indiana University was the first Big Ten school to play at Waldo Stadium in 2007. Over 32,000 fans saw IU defeat WMU in a rain-filled night game. Other major conference teams to visit Waldo Stadium are Virginia in 2003, and Virginia Tech in 2002. Waldo Stadium also holds two of the top four home attendance figures in Mid-American Conference history and five of the top 10 home crowds.
