Our University of Michigan The Big House Stadium Series Baseball Story & Inspiration:
Hail to the conquering heroes. Let me tour you around The Big House®. The University of Michigan's football stadium, nicknamed "The Big House®," is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is the largest stadium in the United States and the Western Hemisphere, the world's third-largest stadium, and the 34th largest sports arena in the world! Its official capacity is 107,601 but has hosted crowds of over 115,000. That is enormous. Wow!
Michigan Stadium, which had a capacity of 72,000 at the time, was built in 1927 for $950,000 (equivalent to $11.6 million in 2020). The Wolverines used to play football at Ferry Field before the stadium became a reality. Since November 8, 1975, every home game has drawn a crowd of over 100,000, an active streak of over 300 games. On September 7, 2013, the games between Michigan and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish drew a crowd of 115,109, a record attendance for a college football game since 1948, and an NCAA single-game attendance record at the time, surpassing the previous record of 114,804 set two years previously for the same matchup. Incredible game, indeed!
"The Big House®" also holds the record for the biggest crowd for an NCAA Division II football game, a contest between the Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania and the Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Slippery Rock became so famous among University of Michigan fans that on September 29, 1979, "The Rock" played in-state rival Shippensburg in front of 61,143 fans at Michigan Stadium (Shippensburg won, 45-14). Slippery Rock returned to Ann Arbor in 1981 and 2014.
On September 10, 2011, the stadium hosted its first-night football game the following season. The Wolverines defeated the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame 35–31.
The stadium is absolutely MASSIVE, it holds the NCAA single-season average home attendance record at 112,252 people. Set in 2012!
The Big House Stadium at the University of Michigan has a big heart for its people in An Arbor. We hope you love it!
