Falcon Stadium, home of the Air Force football team, is built into the base of the Rampart Range mountains. Posed against a picture of natural beauty, the stadium is one of the most functional sports structures in the nation. Although originally constructed solely for football, it also is the location for other events, such as annual graduation ceremonies and intercollegiate soccer and lacrosse games.
Completed in the fall of 1962 at a cost of $3.5 million from funds donated by Air Force personnel and civilian sources, the stadium has 52,123 permanent seats and can hold more than 55,000 spectators with additional temporary bleachers.
All of Falcon Stadium’s seats are within easy walking distance of the 11,400 vehicle parking lot that surrounds the stadium on three sides. There is ample space to accommodate 250 commercial buses, and a rail siding for special trains is located just a few hundred yards from the bowl.
