Michigan Stadium, nicknamed "The Big House", is the football stadium for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Michigan Stadium was built in 1927 at a cost of $950,000 and had an original capacity of 72,000. Before playing football at the stadium, the Wolverines played on Ferry Field. Michigan Stadium is the largest stadium in the United States with an official capacity of 109,901. The football game attendance often exceeds 111,000 when band members, stadium staff, and others are added. On September 4, 2010, 113,090 attended a game at Michigan Stadium between Michigan and the Connecticut Huskies, setting the modern attendance record in college football history, behind several games with estimated attendance of over 120,000 played in the 1920s at Soldier Field in Chicago. The current NCAA single-season all-time home attendance record was 111,175 per game set in 1999 at the stadium. - Source: Wikipedia
