Rose Bowl Stadium Facts and Information
In 1902, the Tournament of Roses® Association decided to improve the day's festivities by adding a football game. Stanford University accepted the request to take on the powerhouse University of Michigan, but the west coast team was crushed 49-0 and gave up in the third quarter. The lopsided score encouraged the Tournament to give up football for Roman-style chariot races.
In 1916, football returned to stay, and the crowds soon outgrew the stands in Tournament Park. William L. Leishman, the Tournament's 1920 President, envisioned a stadium similar to the Yale Bowl, the first huge modern football stadium. He enlisted the help of designer Myron Hunt and builder William A Taylor, and mutually they made plans for a stadium in Pasadena 's Arroyo Seco area.
The new Rose Bowl stadium, a 57,000-seat horseshoe open on the south end, cost $272,198.26. The Tournament financed the scheme by offering ten-year subscription tickets for $100 each. Once completed, it was deeded to the city of Pasadena.
Local newspaper writer Harlan "Dusty" Hall, who also served as the Tournament's press agent, came up with the name "Rose Bowl" for the stadium, and on January 1, 1923, the Tournament held its first football game there.
The stadium grew with the Rose Bowl Game's fame. In 1928, the south end was filled in, growing the seating capacity to 76,000. Additional enlargements took place in 1932 (83,677), 1949 (100,807) and 1972 (104,696). The present seating capacity is approximately 93,000,
The Rose Bowl Stadium has been the site of many "famous firsts" throughout its history, as well as the first wire photo broadcast of a bowl game (in 1925), the first transcontinental radio broadcast of a sporting event (in 1927, on NBC). The first Los Angeles broadcast of a college football game (in 1948, on KTLA). The first national television program for a college football game (in 1952, on NBC). The first coast-to-coast color telecast of a college football game (in 1962, on NBC). The first satellite television transmits to Europe of a college football game (1968), and the first live satellite telecast of a bowl game to the Far East (in 1978). The first live Spanish-language show off the match took place in 1988, and in 1989, the Tournament of Roses celebrated the Rose Bowl Game's 75th anniversary.
