After the addition of the tower and the new seats, this really is a nice place to come watch a game. The seats are comfortable, and the concourse and areas surrounding the stadium have really been upgraded. Small place, so there aren't any bad seats. It can get a little hot if you're not in the shade (which there isn't... More

Took in a game here and was surprised a the lack of amenities. Food trucks and port a potties! With such a highly endowed school I was shocked how it compared with other ACC venues.

Visited Duke to see Virginia Tech play and got two rewards! Tech won! And we got to be in Wallace Wade Stadium to witness it! Security was tightest of any (including all major league) sporting event we have ever seen but was efficiently run. Stadium is great size to view play from any area. Bathrooms were large and nice. #GoHokies!

This stadium is quaint by modern day standards. But when your team wins on a perfect fall day, it's a perfect day. It's even better when you can share that win with a load of Hokies. The stadium is named after Duke's legendary coach. And he was the coach who brought the 1941(?) Rose Bowl to Durham as the west... More

Very nice and good seating. Very strict on entering. Had to go thru all kinds of security. No package larger than 10". Ladies leave your purses home. Parking is very far away about 1.5 miles. But nice walk thru campus. I will return. BTW UVA won the game....we traveled from Charlottesville.

I decided to take the family here for a college football game. It was our first, on Halloween and the stadium was a great experience. The food was very good, although slightly expensive. The seats were a little firm, bring a cushion. Overall a great place to see a game, and the ticket packages were really good and affordable.

Duke football is fun to watch. When the weather's good, it's a great Saturday activity. Colorful fun!

This small horseshoe shaped stadium was originally built 86 years ago. It has been remodeled and expanded only slightly so as to remain very close to its original appearance. It is the only location where the Rose Bowl has been held other than Pasadena. That occurred during WW II because of security concerns. The facility, track, and surrounding athletic facilities...

Just went this past weekend to see Duke play. The recent rennovations to Wallace Wade are great. I love the actual seats versus the bleacher seats. The new scoreboard and sound system is incredible. The crowd has really started to get behind the football team and it is great to see the enthusiasm that only used to be a part... More

The remodeled stadium is a wonderful change to Duke Football, with a "tower" for rented suites and press box under construction and to be finished next season. The whole new field, score board and walls to the seating area are completed and are very well done. A parking garage is under construction very near the stadium, that will also completed... More
