jordan hare stadium

Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium, the nation's 10th-largest on-campus stadium, with a capacity of 87,451, has served as home of the Auburn Tigers since 1939.

 

On football Saturdays in Auburn, Jordan-Hare Stadium becomes Alabama's fifth-largest city. More than 75,000 season tickets have been sold to Auburn home games in each of the last 18 years.

The stadium is named for Ralph "Shug" Jordan, Auburn's all-time winningest football coach, and Clifford Leroy Hare, a member of Auburn's first football team, president of the old Southern Conference and longtime chairman of Auburn's Faculty Athletic Committee. 

Legendary coach Pat Dye has also had his name forever attached to Jordan-Hare Stadium, as the turf officially became known as Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium prior to the 2005 Iron Bowl.  

Dye, who served as head coach and athletics director at Auburn from 1981-92 and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in December 2005, led Auburn to a 99-39-4 record and four SEC Championships in his 12 seasons on the Plains.

Tiger Walk

The Tiger Walk at Auburn University is one of the most imitated traditions in all of college sports.

Each gameday, the Tigers walk from the Athletics Complex down Donahue Drive to Jordan-Hare Stadium. But the team doesn't make the walk alone; instead, they are cheered on by the thousands of Auburn fans who line the street and, in the process, create one of the great scenes in college football. The walk begins two hours before each game.

The tradition began in the 1960s when groups of kids would walk up the street to greet the team and get autographs. It has grown to become one of the most treasured of Auburn traditions.

Come support and cheer on your team as the team walks into Jordan-Hare stadium for the game. All parents, students, cheerleaders, and band members are encouraged to participate in Tiger Walk as well. Please assist in spreading the word throughout your school.

parking/shuttle

During Super 7, Auburn University will still be completing its Fall 2018 academic term, so event parking will be working around normal campus activities.

Public parking on the Auburn University campus outside of designated areas is prohibited before 5 p.m. each day. For the 1A/2A/3A/4A games (start times prior to 5 p.m), all Super 7 parking will be directed to the Ag Heritage Lot located at Donahue Drive and Samford Avenue and at the Hay Field Lot at Donahue Drive and Lem Morrison. Complimentary shuttle service will be available on Thursday and Friday to transport you to and from the stadium at this location. The shuttle will run from these lots from 8:00 a.m. until 90 minutes after the conclusion of the each day’s final game.

For the 5A/6A/7A games (start time after 5 p.m. each day) fans can park in any Auburn University parking lot on a first-come, first-serve basis in addition to the parking lots serviced by shuttles detailed above.

Reasons to Love Auburn-Opelika:

Robert Trent Jones Grand National Golf Course: Robert Trent Jones himself proclaimed Grand National as the “single greatest site for a golf course” he had ever seen. Recognized by writers, designers, and players from around the world, Grand National has received accolades for everything from the “world’s prettiest hole” to the “world’s best public course.” Featuring 54 lake-hugging holes open 364 days a year, try your luck at the championship Lakes or Links course, or if you’re pressed for time, 18 holes of one-shotters on the Short Course will still make your heart go pitter-pat.

Rolling Toomer’s Corner: One of Auburn’s oldest and most renowned traditions, thousands of AU faithful join in downtown Auburn to celebrate tiger victories by hurling tissue into the surrounding trees, lamp posts, and anything that will stand still long enough. A quirky fracas that can last for hours, a blizzard of paper is left blanketing the entire intersection. There’s no way you haven’t heard of it, but seeing is believing! And here’s a fun side note: Auburn is the only city in the country with a line item in its budget for removing toilet tissue!

Chili Dogs & Shakes at Mrs. Story’s Dairy Bar: An Auburn-Opelika tradition since 1952, the secret recipe for Mrs. Story’s famous homemade chili dogs reminds us that, thankfully, some things never change. Still in its original location on Pepperell Parkway, the owners of this 50s style walkup are the third generation of the Story family to serve the freshest “fast” food in the area. Open Mon-Wed 10am-9pm and Thurs-Sat 10am-10pm. 1900 Pepperell Parkway, Opelika. 749-1719.

War Eagle: It is one of the most iconic moments in all of college football: Jordan-Hare’s capacity crowd of almost 90,000 rumbling in unison as a rare eagle is released to free-fly in circles around the stadium, eventually landing mid-field on its leathery pseudo-prey. We defy any liv-ing, breathing human, regardless of the colors you wear, to not get goose bumps from this phenomenon. Nova (War Eagle VII) is a resident of Auburn University’s Southeastern Raptor Rehabilitation Center, where he has been raised and trained, along with his bald eagle friend Spirit, to open home football games in this inspirational fashion. War Eagle y’all.

Dale Chihuly Chandelier: The focal point for the entry of the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University, Chihuly’s Amber Luster is a masterpiece of more than 600 individual pieces of hand-blown glass. It took four days to install, one piece at a time, the 17-foot sculpture which weighs more than 1,000 pounds. JCSM features a varied and interesting permanent collection of American and European art as well as a full calendar of traveling exhibitions throughout the year. Open Monday-Saturday with free admission to all.

Toomer’s Lemonade: When Toomer’s lemonade ranked number one in Esquire magazine’s “162 Reasons It’s Good To Be An American." it was only about 105 years after the rest of us already knew. Handmade to order, this tart and tangy concoction is the hallmark of Toomer’s Drugstore, a beloved Auburn icon and the only business that has occupied this historic corner since 1896. Open seven days.
