Thsi stadium is in the middle of campus, which helps it in some ways (proximity to other places to visit, scenery, etc) but hurts it in others (tailgating for ex). Many improvements have been made over the years. Be careful in choosing sides to sit on. The sun can be a big factor. Also, be prepared for aluminum bench seating... More

The stadium has some age although there have been some recent renovations for the bigger contributors. Seats are primarily aluminum bleachers and you want to be careful not to get seats too low as you will not be able to see the field over the players. Parking near the stadium is almost non-existent so tailgating is a challenge.

Kenan Stadium is not a great place to watch a game. While I recognize the stadium is on a college campus, any tailgating is almost non-existent . As for the stadium itself, The Kenan Center in the West End zone is a complete waste of space. The stadium has strange architecture in the concourse, so trying to dodge the concrete... More

We were just at the stadium this last Saturday, what a great time!! The undefeated Citadel team was visiting and took a beating from the Heels!! The stadium is great, has excellent food and beverage services, and plenty of bathrooms. You could see the Bell Tower from our seats!!

Parking near the stadium isn't an option. But, the walk is worth it and especially the Ram's Club area. It is one of the nicest places to see a college football game.

Nice field and right on campus. Good views from every seat but the amount of leg room in the bleachers is very short, I'm 6 foot tall and my knees touch the seat in front of me. If you're a big person you won't be comfortable and if you need to let anyone in or out of your row, good... More

If you can snag blue zone seats, DO IT! Even if it costs more it is worth it. Nice buffets, bathrooms and "adult beverages". Plus you can come in from the weather and still see the game.

We loved stopping at college campuses to let our young children tour. My husband is a coach so typically we visit the athletic facilities . I was excited to see the facilities were open so we took ourselves on a guided tour and ended with the athletic offices . We loved seeing the memorabilia that was displayed .
