Husky Stadium

Husky Stadium is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, United States. It is the home of the Washington Huskies of the Pacific-12 Conference, hosting its football games. The university holds its annual commencement at the stadium in June. It is located at the southeastern corner of campus, between Montlake Boulevard N.E. and Union Bay, just north of the Montlake Cut. Husky Stadium opened in 1920, with an ongoing major renovation begun in 2011 and projected for completion in 2013. Its U-shaped design was specifically oriented (18.167° south of due east) to minimize glare from the early afternoon sun in the athletes' eyes. The open end overlooks scenic Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains, including Mount Rainier. Its total capacity of 72,500 makes it the largest stadium in the Pacific Northwest.
