Autzen Stadium

Hotels near Autzen Stadium, Eugene, United States .

Eugene, Oregon might be a relaxed little town in the middle of some of the most scenic country in the whole Northwest, but that doesn't mean that the locals won't get riled up when their beloved Ducks play. The site of much energy and excitement, Autzen Stadium is one of the best places to go if you want a fun and fast-paced game day in the world of college football.

Opened in 1967 when The University of Oregon realized that the school team had outgrown its smaller stadium, Autzen Stadium can easily seat 54,000 guests. It's a well-known fact in Eugene that most of the time, attendance exceeds the capacity, but everyone remains comfortable and safe.

Autzen Stadium has a rich history, with the first game played in 1967, when the Ducks took on Colorado. The stadium also shares hosting duties with Oregon State for the extremely popular rivalry match between the schools, known in Oregon as The Civil War game.

In the 1980s, Autzen Stadium underwent extensive renovations that added box seats for VIP guests, as well as a press box for the media. In 2002, that previous renovation was elaborated upon, and even more seating and luxury boxes were added, bring the stadium into the new millennium. Other recent additions include a gigantic high-definition LED scoreboard, as well as an instant replay screen that the locals refer to as Duckvision.

Located right around the corner from Alton Baker Park next to The Willamette River, hours for Autzen Stadium vary depending on when games are scheduled. It's best to check with the school's official web site to see which days are game days. The stadium is also occasionally used for concerts and football camps..

For visitors who want a hotel room right next to the action, there are a number of choices, including The La Quinta Inn Waterfront, The Red Lion Eugene Hotel, and The Phoenix Inn Suites Eugene.
