Jordan-Hare Stadium is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. Nicknamed “the Jungle”, the stadium is the home field of the Auburn Tigers football team. Jordan-Hare is named after legendary football coach Ralph Jordan and Cliff Hare - a member of the first Tiger football team. Visitors to Jordan-Hare Stadium will be struck by the obviously rich traditions of the Auburn Tiger football program.
Jordan-Hare Stadium was opened in 1939 as Auburn Stadium with a seating capacity of only 7,300. The stadium has seen various expansions to take it to its current capacity of more than 87,000, making it the 10th largest on-campus stadium in the NCAA. The playing field itself has been officially named Pat Dye Field in honor of the former Auburn coach. For much of Auburn’s history the school’s rivals wouldn’t make the trip to Auburn because of travel conditions and the condition of Auburn’s stadium. The expansions to Jordan-Hare Stadium have made it possible for Auburn to bring teams in for games. Archrival Alabama didn’t play at Auburn until 1989.
Jordan-Hare Stadium and the atmosphere of a home game have been described by sports columnist Bud Poliquin as both “college football’s Grand Canyon” and “ the epitome of what the college football experience is all about.” It’s an experience every college football fan should have.
