Rose Bowl - A Closer Look
The Rose Bowl was the original bowl game, first played in 1902. Since that time the game has only grown in stature, with over 100,000 holders of Rose Bowl tickets regularly cramming into the stadium known as the Rose Bowl
each January 1. Although the current capacity has been limited to 92,542, Rose Bowl tickets remain in great demand. With that many seats in the interior bowl there are endless seating and pricing options and we’ve got everything you need to make the best possible choice. In an era of newfangled designer stadiums, the Rose Bowl delivers a sense of history and charm that you just can’t find anywhere else. And of course it also regularly delivers intriguing matchups between some of the more elite teams in the game.
The game has been immensely popular right from the beginning, when those with Rose Bowl tickets
watched Michigan defeat Stanford in the 1902 game, known then as the “Tournament East-West Game.” The concept at that time was to match a west coast team against a team from the east. After 1902 the game wasn’t played again until 1916, but it’s been played continuously ever since. Before long, Rose Bowl tickets were in such great demand that a new stadium was built in 1923, appropriately named the Rose Bowl
, just to accommodate the event. Prior to 1978 the stadium was often cited as having the largest capacity of any football stadium in America. Even today it remains the eighth largest capacity in the country, and largest of all the bowl games. Get your Rose Bowl tickets today
