Not the largest stadium in the conference has a lot of character. Parking is priemium as most college games. Named for one of Duke's most succesful coaches. The 1938 Iron Dukes are one of only three college teams to go undeated, untied and unscored upon...More

The new renovations really make this stadium a great place to visit for a football game. There are a lot of food options as well.

My wife and I recently went to a game here as fans of the away team. The people were all good to us and the stadium really was quite nice if not terribly modern. From our seats it looked like there weren't any spots without...More

Newly refurbished Wallace Wade stadium is a real up-grade from years past. And a pre-game visit to the Duke sports museum is a must (even if you aren't a Duke fan -- lots of fun memorabilia). But I write to commend the staff for efforts...More

After the addition of the tower and the new seats, this really is a nice place to come watch a game. The seats are comfortable, and the concourse and areas surrounding the stadium have really been upgraded. Small place, so there aren't any bad seats....More

Took in a game here and was surprised a the lack of amenities. Food trucks and port a potties! With such a highly endowed school I was shocked how it compared with other ACC venues.

Visited Duke to see Virginia Tech play and got two rewards! Tech won! And we got to be in Wallace Wade Stadium to witness it! Security was tightest of any (including all major league) sporting event we have ever seen but was efficiently run. Stadium...More

This stadium is quaint by modern day standards. But when your team wins on a perfect fall day, it's a perfect day. It's even better when you can share that win with a load of Hokies. The stadium is named after Duke's legendary coach. And...More
