So Long Stagg Stadium

Reaction to the pending demolition of Stagg Memorial Stadium has made some nostalgic for Friday nights watching high school football under the lights and Saturday afternoons and evenings watching the Pacific Tigers play football. The 64-year-old relic will be razed to make room for tennis courts, a soccer field and a field hockey playing suface.

Obviously, the $5 million renovation project means the end of Pacific football,which was discontinued in1995. Two years ago, when the university announced it was closing Stagg Stadium to the public, the Record sports staff produced comprehensive articles and a video in conjunction with the university’s announcement.

The work below goes into the history of the stadium and Pacific’s reasons for closing the structure.
