I attended the University of California vs, North Carolina football game at Kenan Stadium. This place needs to be replaced. The rows of seats are so close together that my 6’5” frame couldn’t fit on my row. That is actually my only complaint of the...More

I suppose if you're in the Blue Zone, or in the Art Pope seats at the top of the stadium, Kenan might offer you a comfortable experience (though the BZ is in the end zone). But if you're doomed to the aluminum bench seats in...More

Recent upgrades to the stadium and the addition of the Blue End in the last decade have made Kenan an even better place to watch a game than it was when I was growing up. Night games are excellent, especially in the autumn months when...More

It's old. There have been additions and renovations but basically they benefited the high dollar donors. For visiting fans it is terrible. If you are 5 ft tall and weigh 100 lbs you can fit the bench seats. Otherwise be prepared to be crowded and...More

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...More

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...More

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.

The only place for visitors to tailgate is at the Friday Center. Take the Hy 54 exit from I40. From there you can catch a shuttle to get to about 1/4 miles from the stadium. That is the best you can do since there is no... More
