Vanderbilt Stadium (at Dudley Field) is an outdoor football stadium located on the campus of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Opened in 1922 and originally known only as Dudley Field, the stadium has seen multiple renovation and expansions finally bring the capacity up to nearly 40,000. It was named for a former dean, William Dudley. Vanderbilt Stadium is likely to be further remodeled and expanded in the near future. Visitors to the Vanderbilt Stadium will be hard pressed not to notice the rich tradition on display during a Vanderbilt game.
In addition to hosting the Vanderbilt Commodores football team, Vanderbilt Stadium has also served as the temporary home of the Tennessee Oilers as they transitioned to Nashville from Houston. The stadium also hosted the Music City Bowl, a postseason college football game in 1998, as well as Tennessee state high school football championships.
Attend a game at the first stadium in the South built exclusively for football, and you’ll be able to feel the heritage and history of the Commodore football program. Competing in the always tough, ultra-competitive SEC provides Vanderbilt with a tremendous challenge every year, and makes games at Vanderbilt Stadium some of the toughest in the nation.
