About Bulldog Stadium at Fresno State

Original construction of Bulldog Stadium began in June of 1979 following what was then the most successful capital fundraising project ever undertaken in the San Joaquin Valley. Local residents raised in excess of $7 million for the project. No state tax dollars or student fees were used to build the stadium.

Built partially below ground level with the playing field 37 feet below grade, the bowl features a low profile appearance. A unique cantilevered lighting system extends toward the field and is directed downward to concentrate lighting on the playing surface.

Bulldog Stadium underwent a two-phase expansion project in 1991, which included the addition of more than 10,000 seats -- increasing the stadium's capacity from 30,000 to 41,031 -- and the construction of 22 sky suites. Other improvements included additional restrooms and concession facilities.

The first phase entailed filling in the panels beyond the north and south end zones with bench seating and the reconfiguration of the seating on the stadium's east side. The second phase, completed prior to the 1992 season, featured the addition of 22 sky suites, each of which includes seating for 20, among other amenities.

At its present state, chair seating is available for more than 5,000 spectators on the west side of the stadium between the 18-yard lines to accommodate the contributors of the $7 million. There are also 4,240 chair-back seats on the east side and the rest of the stadium seating is on aluminum benches.
