Our Auburn University Jordan-Hare Football University Story & Inspiration:
The humble beginnings. Before 1939, Auburn played its home games at Drake Field, a bare-bones field with only 700 seats in temporary bleachers. Because of its modest capacity, Auburn could only host one game on campus each year, and many of its "home" games were played at neutral sites. By the 1930s, Auburn had outgrown Drake Field, and school officials moaned about having to play "home" games at Birmingham's Legion Field, Montgomery's Cramton Bowl, and even Columbus, Georgia's Memorial Stadium. Yes! Auburn, keep growing.
Back in the year 1939. The stadium, previously known as Auburn Stadium, staged its first football game on November 10, 1939, between the freshmen teams of the Auburn Tigers and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Tigers, let's go!
Get to know about Jordan and Hare. Jordan–Hare Stadium is the home stadium of the Auburn University Tigers football team and located on campus in Auburn, Alabama. The stadium is named after Ralph "Shug" Jordan, the school's all-time top scorer, and Cliff Hare, a member of Auburn's first football team, as well as the Dean of the Auburn University School of Chemistry and the Southern Conference President.
Saying goodbye to Jordan and Hare. Pat Dye Field at Jordan–Hare Stadium is the new name for the stadium. With the 2004 expansion, the stadium now has a seating capacity of 87,451, making it the NCAA's 10th largest stadium. The Stadium's playing field dedicated to former Auburn coach and athletic director Pat Dye on November 19, 2005. It's been on lists of the best gameday atmospheres and most daunting places to play for years. Whoah! Surreal.
As Auburn became more accessible and the stadium's capacity grew, more games were moved to Jordan–Hare Stadium. Alabama was Auburn's last significant foe in the 1980s who had yet to play at Jordan–Hare Stadium. Since its permanent renewal in 1948, the annual Iron Bowl match between Alabama and Auburn held at Legion Field. The Iron Bowl originally scheduled to be played at Legion Field since neither Auburn Stadium nor Denny Stadium had nearly enough seats to meet the anticipated attendance. Legion Field had 20,000 more seats than Jordan-Hare at its peak. What a roller-coaster ride from Auburn to Jordan-Hare to Pat Dye Field to Legion Field. Wow!
