Arizona Stadium is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the University of Arizonamarker in Tucson, Arizonamarker. It is the home field of the Arizona Wildcats of the Pacific-10 Conference, and its current seating capacity is 57,803.

Located in central Tucsonmarker, the stadium has been home to Wildcat football since 1928. Initially, stadium capacity was just 7,000, with seating located on the stadium's west side. Arizona's first game at the facility was October 12, 1929 when the Wildcats defeated Caltechmarker 35-0. Capacity was raised to 10,000 in 1938 when seats were constructed on the east side of the stadium. Additional seating was added to both end zones in 1947. This added an additional 4,000 seats.

In 1950, a horseshoe configuration was constructed around the south end zone resulting in the addition of almost 8,700 seats. A multi-level press box and 10,000 seats were added to the west grandstand in 1965. The east side of the stadium received a second tier, consisting of 17,000 seats, in 1976, as the Wildcats prepared to leave the WAC for the Pac-8 in 1978.

In 1981, the track team moved out and the track was removed. Permanent seating was placed at the north end of the end zone in 1988. Following the 1988 season, a new press box with luxury sky boxes replaced the aging structure built more than two decades earlier. Prior to the 1999 season, a new state-of-the-art scoreboard was installed complete with video monitor.

The football field runs in the traditional north-south configuration and the natural grass playing field sits at an elevation of 2430 feet (740 m) above sea level.[141304]

In addition to hosting football games, the stadium also includes two dormitories, Pinal and Navajo, in the South stands, and Sierra Hall, which today is home to offices for the music department and Residence Life, located in the west stands

In September 2009, UA announced a long-term $378 million sports expansion project that would include an expansion of the north end zone stands. The expansion would include a four-story building that would house locker rooms and football offices, among other things.
