Michigan Stadium, affectionately known as The Big House by U-M students, alumni, and fans across the world, is one of the largest and most iconic athletic venues. The Big House boasts a seating capacity of 107,601 and exemplifies the Wolverine enthusiasm that surrounds “the team, the team, the team.” The stadium isn’t just home to the U-M football team – the International Champions Cup (ICC) tournament has come to town three times, including the 2014 match between Real Madrid and Manchester United that set an American attendance record with over 109,318 people!
Michigan Stadium also hosts U-M’s spring commencement, special events, and movie nights throughout the summer! There’s even yoga in the Big House each year, which is an incredible experience, and uniquely Michigan. If you want to check it out for yourself, you’re in luck! The Big House has tours available, just make sure you schedule in advance so you don’t miss out on your chance to kick a field goal.
