Prior to the construction of Michigan Stadium, the Wolverines called two fields in Ann Arbor, as well as several in the Detroit area, “home turf”. Head coach, Fielding Yost envisioned a permanent home for the Wolverines for over 100,000 fans. In 1927, a year after Yost left UM, Michigan Stadium was completed, seating 72,000, but was designed with footings to allow the stadium’s capacity to be expanded to 150,000. In 1930, electronic scoreboards were installed, making it the first stadium in the United States to use an electronic clock to keep the official game time. In 1974, the stadium was expanded to reach a capacity of over 101,000. Since then, “The Big House” has led the nation in average attendance every year except 1997. The most recent renovation in 2010 brought the capacity to around 110,000; however, because the stadium is built below ground level, you may be fooled looking at the stadium from the outside, thinking it is only about 20 feet tall!
