Aggie Stadium opened in 1981 and is considered one of the finest facilities in the Triad. It is also the second largest on-campus football facility in the Triad.

It serves as the home of the North Carolina A&T football team and fans have watched the team win more than 65 percent of its games there. From the first game that featured a 21-14 win over Triad rival Winston-Salem State in front of 23,000 fans until today, Aggie Stadium has served as a place to witness outstanding football, musical entertainment from the Blue and Gold Marching Machine and one of the best college environments in college football.

It was designed by N.C. A&T alumnus W. Edward Jenkins, AIA, and constructed at a cost of more

than $2.5 million and occupies 125,755 square feet of space. With additional seating in 2003 Jenkins' design evolved into a stadium that held a record crowd of 27,769.

North Carolina A&T is 84-68-1 since the stadium opened. During its first 14 years, Aggie Stadium comfortably seated 16,500. In 1995, 5,000 seats were installed to complete an attractive horseshoe shape. In recent years the stadium has undergone more improvements. Ford Motor Company donated a generous amount in 1999 toward the construction of lights and an electronic marquee, which is located in front of the Lindsay Street gate entrance. Elon University was the first opponent to face the Aggies under their new lighted stadium in front of 17,284 fans in 2000.

Aggie Stadium's most recent addition was a state-of-the art video scoreboard. The scoreboard has enhanced the gameday experience for Aggie fans by displaying replays, advertisements, crowd shots and announcements.
