“Best Football Stadium Anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

I'm a Georgia graduate so what would you expect me to say! BUT it's true!! Beautiful campus and the stadium is the crown jewel of the university.

“Not a bad view anywhere in the Stadium!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

Went to Sanford for the first time for the UGA-Mizzou game in October and had a blast. It is certainly quite an experience to see football played between the hedges. We sat in the upper deck, which was not a bad view at all. Only complaint is the lack of more concessions- lines were quite long on the upper concourse, so we had to walk down to the ground level to get food. Very friendly atmosphere!

“Best Gameday Experience Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I am unabashedly prejudiced. I love Sanford stadium and have attended games there for more than 40 years. The atmosphere is special and the game day traditions unite the fans with the team. If you ever have the chance, go to a game there regardless of the opponent. See first hand the leading religion in the south, college football.

“No ordinary public tours at this stadium”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

It's a college football stadium. As far as I know, there are no public tours of the facility. You can see the famous view, the "hedges", by walking along the road on the side near the student center. Its main function is a center of exploitation of underpaid young men, not a tourist attraction.

“The "Hedges" Rule!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

Until you have experienced a game "Between the Hedges" at Sanford stadium, you just can't relate to what a great facility and experience awaits. There are few as good and no better college stadium facilities on earth.
