Visited the Stadium for the ill-fated appearance of the UW Huskies vs. Cal Bears. This venue has much to offer, including picturesque sunsets, the beautiful hills that rise above the stadium (and the tightwads who gather there), and the friendly ambiance of fans who enjoy...More

Visited for the Bears vs. Huskies game (Oct. 2018); took the BART from SF (40mins) to Downtown Berkeley and then a free shuttle bus, that drives through the stunning Berkeley Campus and drops you off a few 100 yds. from the very impressive (63,000 seat)...More

Not a fan of the Golden Bears, but their stadium is pretty cool! In the Heart of UC-Berkeley, this Stadium (home of "The Play") felt like a time machine. Its simplicity, but yet an engineering jewel (plus the NorCal weather), makes this a perfect place...More

Great place for a game, or a graduation ceremony. I recommend doing both. Comfortable seats, and helpful staff.

What a shame so many of Cal's football games are at night when the stadium on a fall afternoon is almost certain to be sunny and clear. It gives the fan an opportunity to climb up to the top rows to look out over San...More

Cal Memorial Stadium opened in 1923 and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. But its location built directly on the active Hayward Fault and resulting seismic damage and instability necessitated a reconstruction and retrofit. From 2012-2012 the entire west side of the stadium...More
