Commonwealth Stadium

Commonwealth Stadium

On game day, Commonwealth Stadium usually becomes the third-largest city in Kentucky. Home of the UK football team, the 67,606-seat stadium features a brand new, state-of-the-art locker room, along with a Bermuda grass playing surface. New video boards and a sound system were installed for the 2011 season, adding a new dimension to the Commonwealth experience, especially for night games. Since enclosing the stadium in 1999, UK has ranked in the nation’s top 25 in attendance in 11 of the last 13 years.

Stadium Facts and Records

“I love game day at Commonwealth. It really is one of the reasons I went to Kentucky. You have thousands of fans waiting on you to arrive at the Cat Walk, screaming and yelling at you. The excitement continues to build as you wait for the game to start. And when those bright lights turn on at Commonwealth, you can't compare that to anything.” — Wesley Woodyard, former UK All-SEC linebacker and current Denver Bronco
