    History

    The stadium opened in 1922 with original construction costs of $1.34 million and featured a natural grass playing surface. The original seating capacity was 66,210. The stadium switched to Astroturf in 1970 but returned to natural grass in 1990 until the installation of the popular FieldTurf in 2007. Ohio Stadium was refurbished in 2001 for slightly more than $194 million. As part of the renovation, the once portable South Stands became a permanent fixture. In 2013 the university revealed plans for an additional 2,500 seats to be added to south stands. These seats will be built over the entrance tunnels and will raise the official capacity of the stadium to 104,851, making it the third largest stadium in the country and the fifth largest stadium in the world. In addition to football, the MLS Columbus Crew played at Ohio Stadium before opening up their Columbus Crew Stadium.
