While attending a Notre Dame - Boston College football game as a fan of the visiting team, the BC/Alumni Stadium staff were friendly, helpful and overall outstanding. The recent addition of beer/wine sales during games is an excellent plus, particularly for those of us that...More

This place is old and not well kept. The concessions are limited in variety. The restrooms are old and worn and there are not enough of them.

Alumni Stadium is a great venue for football. You get a chance to see National Power-Houses like Clemson, Florida State, and Notre Dame. There is not a bad seat in the stadium, but the best seats are the ones that face away from Boston because...More

I am a BC alum and have been here many times. My only issue is that the seats are too close together. I have two sons who are 6'4" and 6'3" and they find the legroom inadequate.

We attend football games here every other year when our team comes to town to play Boston College. It's a comfortable stadium, with great food options. There is essentially no parking available, so on game day the college operates a large fleet of school buses...More
