About Sanford Stadium
Sanford Stadium is in Athens, Georgia on the campus of the University of Georgia. It’s the home stadium of the university’s football team, the Georgia Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs play “Between the Hedges.” The term is taken from the fact that the field is surrounded by privet hedges.
The hedges have been a part of the stadium since it opened in 1929. The hedges were removed for the 1996 Summer Olympics (soccer) and replanted after the games.
The idea for the hedges came from a member of the UGA Athletic Department who saw roses at the Rose Bowl. Since roses don’t do well in Athens’ clime, privet hedges were selected.
No one disputes Georgia was the first school to erect hedges (it’s been copied by several other stadiums), but many debate the exact type of privet hedges.
Officially, they are “English privet hedge" but many insist they are a Chinese privet, Ligustrum sinense.
Sanford Stadium is named after Dr. Steadman Vincent Sanford. Sanford came to UGA in 1903 and eventually became the institution’s president.
Before Sanford Stadium was built, the Bulldogs played at Sanford Field.
That venue was too small to host the school’s annual contest versus in-state rival Georgia Tech. The big game, which always drew huge crowds, was played in Atlanta at Georgia Tech’s home field.
In 1927, the Bulldogs’ perfect season came crashing down when they fell to Georgia Tech, 12-0.
Many UGA fans believed Georgia Tech watered down the field to purposely slow their running backs.
Whether or not that was true, the defeat caused the university to raise money and build a new stadium.
onstruction of the venue was mainly done by convicts.
Sanford Stadium opened on Oct. 12, 1929 with a capacity of 30,000. Tickets were $3. At the time, it was the biggest crowd to ever attend a football game in the south.
The Bulldogs defeated Yale, still a college football powerhouse and heavily favored, 15-0.
Over the years, Sanford Stadium has been renovated several times.
The venue now accommodates more than 92,000.
Sanford Stadium is the 10th largest stadium in college football, the 11th largest stadium in the United States, and the 19th largest stadium in the world.
When those cute bulldogs that serve as the team’s mascots go to the big fire hydrant in the sky, they are buried in the stadium’s southeast corner.
Sanford Stadium is one of the few football stadiums oriented east-west and not north-south.
