About Ross Ade Stadium

Built on the northern wing of the Purdue University Campus in West Lafayette, Indiana 47906 US, is the iconic Ross Ade Stadium. It is stadium named after two of its major sponsors David E. Ross, former president of the Board of Trustees. As well as playwright and humorist, George Ade. Dedicated in 1924, in a game between Purdue Boilermakers football team and an intrastate opponent.

The stadium was built as a replacement for the age-long Stuart Field. With an initial seating capacity of 13,500, the stadium went through a  $70 million renovation in 2001 by Purdue University. Which pushed its seating capacity to approximately 62, 500. Over the years, more renovations have been carried out on the stadium adding more beauty to it.
