Description
Autzen Stadium, costing approximately $3 million, and taking only nine months to build, was creatively designed within an artificial crater, avoiding the need for multilevel ramps. The 41,000 seat stadium was named for the Autzen Foundation, headed by UO alumnus Thomas Autzen, who contributed to the project. In 2003, the $90 million expansion of the 1967 facility increased capacity from 41,700 to 58,000 seats.
