Falcon Stadium, home to some of the finest individuals in this country, with their dedication to the Air Force, has been the location of Falcon football for over five decades. In the early 1960s, discussion began on the possibility of building a stadium for the football program as all their games were played at other colleges. That discussion became a reality when funds from Air Force personnel and fans was raised and the stadium was built.
Opening in 1962, the stadium cost $3.5 million. Named after the team, Falcon Stadium has a seating capacity of just over 52,000. On September 22, 1962 the Falcons beat Colorado Springs in the inaugural first game at the stadium. The lower grandstand encloses the playing field while the second and third decks are located on one side of the stadium. The main scoreboard sits above the stands in the endzone. Falcon Stadium has changed very little over the years, but has hosted many memorable football games. Lighting was added in 2002 and a new videoboard in 2004.
