Product Description



Iowa Hawkeyes football (NCAA) (1929-present)

Kinnick Stadium, formerly known as Iowa Stadium, is a stadium located in Iowa City, Iowa. It is the home stadium of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes. First opened in 1929, it currently holds up to 70,585 people, making it the 6th largest stadium in the Big Ten, and one of the 20 largest university owned stadiums in the nation. It is named for Nile Kinnick, the 1939 Heisman Trophy winner and the only Heisman winner in university history, who died in service during World War II. It was named Iowa Stadium until 1972, when longtime lobbying by Cedar Rapids Gazette sportswriter Gus Schrader successfully convinced the UI athletic board to change the name. The stadium also underwent major renovations in 1956, 1983 and 1990 where capacity was gradually taken from 53,000 to 70,397. The most recent renovations in 2004–06 pushed the capacity to its current level at 70,585.
