Also known as The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium, the stadium has been synonymous with a paradise for Eskimos fans thanks to the unbridled success of their team. It is an open-air all-seater multi-purpose stadium designed primarily for football. The stadium is the largest in the CFL in terms of seating capacity with 56,302 and before 2010 was the only venue to use natural grass.
It has undergone renovations and expansions four times and is more than on par with modern stadiums today.
Commonwealth Stadium Seating
The stadium has undergone a series of facelifts through the years. It first expanded in 1982 and again in 2013. In preparation for the 2001 World Championships in Athletics, the stadium upgraded with a new facade, concourse enlargement, improved lighting, a new scoreboard, and an all-new all-weather running track. FieldTurf replaced the natural grass surface in 2008 and finally in 2010 upgraded all of its seating.
