Bobby Bowden Field at Doak S. Campbell Stadium

(UPDATED 9/2016)

CHAMPIONS CLUB & SCOREBOARD

Two of the largest and most recognizable renovations to the stadium in years were completed in September 2016 prior to the home opener against Charleston Southern. The nation's largest video board, standing nearly 63 feet tall in the north end zone. In the south end, the Champions Club offers a viewing and dining experience that rivals any stadium in the country. With outdoor canopies and covered seating, the Champions Club is the largest single-season stadium renovation in Doak Campbell Stadium history.

15,000 - 84,409
From a maximum capacity of 15,000 in 1953 to a record crowd of 84,409 in 2013 against Miami, Doak S. Campbell Stadium has risen along with the Florida State football program to the top of the college football ladder.

NOV. 20, 2004
In a special ceremony prior to the Florida game on November 20, 2004, the home of Florida State football took on a meaning even more special when Bobby Bowden Field was dedicated.  Now, with numerous additions to enhance the gameday experience, Seminole fans are treated to one of college football's greatest venues.

SOUTH ENDZONE
The south endzone houses the Florida State University School of Hospitality, where students in the program receive hands-on experience in various aspects of the food and beverage industry.  The multi-level facility includes a restaurant and sports grill on the top floor that gives a breathtaking panoramic view of Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium. The newest addition to the south endzone, the Champions Club, was completed in fall 2016.

NORTH ENDZONE
The north endzone, which consisted of wood bleachers until the 1994 season kicked off, is topped by the offices of the football coaches.  The offices are just part of the Daisy Parker Flory wing of the Moore Athletic Center which includes a number of amenities for the football staff.  An even more drastic change came in June of 2005 when the athletics department offices moved back into the newly rebuilt Moore Center.

THE LAST 175
The Seminoles have been formidable at home.  In their last 175 home games - since the start of the 1988 season - the Seminoles are 151-23-1.  The bulk of those games came with Bobby Bowden leading the team.  Over his 34-year career the Seminoles posted a 166-33-2 home record - an .831 winning percentage.  That includes an astonishing 56-1-1 record at home in the 1990's and the start of a 54-game unbeaten streak (53-0-1) which began in 1992 and stretched through the first two games of the 2001 season.

200 & 300
Bowden's 200th career victory came on October 27, 1990, as FSU routed Louisiana State, 42-3, in Tallahassee.  In 2007, Bowden won his 300th game at FSU on the field that bears his name with a 24-6 win over Maryland.

287 & COUNTING
The 'Noles are 287-87-4 all-time (.765) at Doak. and 295-91-4 (.762) as the home team, which includes three seasons -- 1947-49 -- when they played their home games as Centennial Field. FSU was 8-4 at the downton Tallahassee site, including 8-0 in coach Don Veller's first two seasons.

OCTOBER 7, 1950
Doak Campbell Stadium opened on October 7, 1950, with Florida State celebrating a 40-7 victory over Randolph-Macon.  Since then, millions of fans have passed through the gates.
