Intimidating college football stadium
From 1919 until 1967, the Oregon Ducks played at the 15,000 seat Hayward Field.
By the 1960s as the football team became more successful, it was apparent that a new stadium needed to be built for the Ducks.
16, 2006 when UCA defeated Missouri State 16-14 in front of a then-stadium record 11,215 fans.
The Bears also won their first game on The Stripes, defeating Henderson State 38-14 on Sept.
Also included in this addition was the expansion of the press box that included 32 luxury suites.
This addition provided a cantilevered roof to cover some fans from inclement weather.
The suites provide Bear fans first-class amenities and a premium gameday experience at one of the most intimidating Division I FCS venues in the nation.
When a place is labeled a “zoo”, you know crazy things are bound to happen.
Autzen Stadium only seats 54,000 people, but the crowd can really give it to you.
It also helps that the stadium design amplifies the crowds cheers.
Named after former UCA coach "Big" Dan Estes, Estes Stadium has been the home to UCA football since 1939, but in no way resembles the original structure, having been completely overhauled in recent years.
In 1998, the stadium's west side was rebuilt from the ground up and includes three levels of offices, training rooms, locker rooms, meeting rooms, classrooms, the UCA Sports Hall of Fame room, press box, radio booths and VIP boxes.
