Football Stadiums tells the stories of about 150 of the great American Football stadiums - active and retired - across the country that have hosted pro football or college football play. They are home to current NFL franchises and the best college teams and a source of endless fascination, research, discussion, and even pilgrimages. To serious fans, they are hallowed ground. The NFL Stadiums chapters cover the big winners and the forever determined. Teams include the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks. College stadiums are home to impassioned youth, future NFLers and the devoted communities they call home. They include Aloha Stadium (Hawaii), Autzen Stadium (Oregon), Cotton Bowl (Dallas), Folsom Field (Boulder), Memorial Stadium (Clemson), Michigan Stadium (Ann Arbor), Rose Bowl (Pasadena), Yale Bowl (New Haven) and Memorial Stadium (Champaign). Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, has been called 'a shrine to pro football'. It takes just over 73,000 fans to fill its seats yet more than 81,000 names are on the season-ticket waiting list. The average wait time is 30 years. That's just one of the country's many stadiums that embody the spirit of the game. Football Stadiums is a loving tribute to the sport's greatest shrines.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There have been scores of books extolling the variety and romantic virtues of major league baseball parks, but the handful of books covering football's generally more uniform stadiums have tended to focus exclusively on college stadiums or parking lot tailgating, so Freedman's book is distinctive owing to its treatment of pro venues... Many of the color photographs are generously laid out. VERDICT A nice compendium that conveniently brings together some arcane facts and particulars, this cross between a reference book and a pictorial work will appeal to hard-core football fans.-- (01/01/2014)
Hallowed ground to serious sports fans, stadiums are shrines of near mythical proportion where legends are forged. Giving this handsome roundup of 130 major coliseums including all 32 current NFL stadiums, 77 college stadiums, and 35 other famous or now-demolished bowls or fields, all accompanied by photos, trivia and historical tidbits to any pigskin buff will score you some serious extra points.-- (01/11/2014)
Boasting a generous layout of colorful photographs, this book is a nice compendium of football geography that conveniently brings together some arcane facts and particulars on where the game has been played. As a cross between a reference book and a pictorial work, it will appeal mainly to hardcore football fans. However, the unique quality of this book recommends it to any football research collection.-- (09/01/2014)
