In full disclosure, I have been a volunteer usher here for many, many years. Overall, the venue is picturesque and the staff work hard to maintain a family atmosphere. I understand at other college football stadiums around the country, the percentage of drunk and obnoxious...More

Attended as a visitor. This stadium has some dead viewing spots and the seats are not comfortable. It reminds me of some high school stadiums. Bathrooms are old and outdated. Most ACC schools have spent money updating their stadiums, but I guess all the money...More

I have been a season ticket holder for decades. Kenan Stadium was built in 1927 and has had several very tasteful additions added since then; now seats 66,000+. The stadium was built into a dell and may not rise higher than the pine trees around...More

This is a great place to watch a game even if you are not UNC fan and from the visiting team. Good seating all around but caution if you are down in the first 8 rows behind the benches. Good selection of food for purchase...More

See yourself on the big screen at the end of your torment after Laurel Hill Challenge. Football games would be great if they dump "no-care-looking for greener pastures- Fedora. When he is gone the stadium will look much better.

This stadium is a great looking stadium and can get loud on Gameday when there are enough people in the stands.

Nice stadium experience as the seats are aluminum with backs which is a plus over most stadiums who have just the benches unless you pay a premium price. Wish the boards at both ends of the field showed stats, score, downs and time like most...More

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

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
