Larry Blakeney Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium

The stadium has seen tremendous growth and change during its 63-year existence. It was built for a mere $65,000 as Memorial Stadium in 1950, and seated just 5000 spectators. Several renovations followed, including in 1998, when the facility moved from a 12,000-seat capacity to 17,500.

Construction began in July 2002 to expand its capacity to 30,000, with the largest part of the project being a new six-story press box structure that houses 27 sky boxes, a state-of-the-art media hosting facility, a unique Trojan Stadium Club area that houses more than 1000 guests, and floors dedicated to sports medicine, academics, strength and conditioning, and media relations.

Veterans Memorial Stadium has proven to be one of the most difficilult venues in America to come away with a road victory from. The Trojans are 98-19-1 in Veterans Memorial Stadium since 1991 and have posted a winning record at home in 23 of the past 24 seasons.
