Product Description



Michigan Stadium, nicknamed The Big House, is the football stadium for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Michigan Stadium has often been called "The Carnegie Hall of all Sports" and is also known as "the House that Yost built." It was built in 1927, at a cost of $950,000 and had an original capacity of 72,000. Prior to playing football at the stadium, the Wolverines played on Ferry Field. Today, Michigan Stadium has an official capacity of 106,201, due to renovations for the 2008 season.

Currently the stadium lists as the second largest in the United States, behind Penn State's Beaver Stadium, due to a reduction of 1,300 seats resulting from a lawsuit filed on behalf of disabled patrons. Notwithstanding the reduction in official seating capacity due to the renovations, Michigan has retained its number one ranking in actual attendance. The former official capacity of 107,501 made The Big House the largest stadium in the United States up until the recent changes. Current renovations are expected to be completed in time for the 2010 Football season. These renovations will bring the capacity up to 108,000, once again making it the largest football stadium in the country.
