Washington-Grizzly Stadium celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2016, serving as the home of the Montana Grizzlies since 1986.
The Grizzlies broke the stadium’s all-time attendance record in 2015, packing 26,427 fans in to see UM’s 38-35 win over North Dakota State on ESPN. Griz fans also packed the house for two more of the top-25 all time attended games in 2015, with 26,137 fans at the homecoming game against NAU, and 26,065 fans in a night game against Cal Poly.
For the second-straight season and the fifth time in the last decade, the Grizzlies also packed in more fans than any other program in FCS football, and in 2015 dew more fans than 44 FBS programs as well.
When compared to FBS schools, Montana drew more average attendance than over 34 percent of the 128 total FBS programs, including seven teams from the regionally comparative Mountain West Conference. The Grizzlies averaged 24,139 fans per-game over the course of a seven-game home slate last year, for a total of 168,975 fans. That’s over 16 percent of Montana’s population.
