Bryant–Denny Stadium is marked as the eighth largest stadium in the world and the seventh largest stadium in the United States of America. It is also ranked amongst the top 5 on-campus football stadiums in the nation.
Bryant-Denny Stadium has been the home sanctuary for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team since its opening in 1929. Many Hall of Fame coaches and national champions have graced this ground with their presence throughout the years. Its initial capacity was 12,000 but after several renovations and expansions done in mid summer 2010, it can now accommodate a staggering number of 101,821 “Roll Tide” chanting fans. The stadium is owned and operated by the University of Alabama and was initially named after the legendary president of the University of Alabama George Hutcheson Denny. Later in 1975, the state legislature renamed it as Bryant-Denny Stadium as a tribute to the Tide coach Paul William "Bear" Bryant.
On 12th October 1946, after its second expansion, a packed crowd of 31,000 fans witnessed Tide’s victory over Southwestern Louisiana with a score of 54-0.
ABC aired the first live game from campus on television on 17th November 1979.
Crimson Tide’s 36-0 victory over Auburn in 2008 was the first ever Iron Bowl victory in Bryant–Denny Stadium.
The inaugural game of the Denny Stadium was played on 28th September 1929, in which 'The Tide’ bagged victory over Mississippi College by 55-0.
