Akron Zips Football at InfoCision Stadium Address: 375 E Exchange St. Akron, Ohio, 44304
The University of Akron Zips football team plays their home games at InfoCision Stadium in Akron, Ohio. InfoCision Stadium has been the home to the Zips since 2009 and can seat over 30,000 fans. The state of the art stadium is one of the newest in the country and replaces the historic Rubber Bowl which had been the home to the Zips since 1940. At the south end of the field is a grassy hill which can accommodate around 3,000 fans, usually students. This unseated hill is one of the most unique areas in a stadium in college football and when combined with the massive student presence at Zips home games, gives fans a laid back, yet passionate way to cheer on their favorite Zips players. The Rubber Bowl was one of the staples of MAC games over the past few decades, but attending games at the brand new InfoCision Stadium is a wonderful college football experience and is one of the best in the MAC. InfoCision Stadium parking information is covered in our Zips event guide.
