I like how #2 Aloha Stadium underwent $1.2 million (with an M) in renovations in 2016. I wonder how far they got with that budget!

It makes no sense that Kenan is not in this list.

Well, the endeavour seems to have no discernible standards ("... based on attendance, online comments and more"), so sense don't enter into it.

Once upon a time Sports Illuustrated (late 70’s or early 80’s) had an article that listed Wallace Wade as one of the “best stadiums to watch bad football”. Now it appears to have shifted to one of the worst stadiums to watch good football*.

*Yes, I know we weren’t necessarily good at home lately.

Sell craft beer and have good food trucks. Not hard to improve the amenities.

good beer and good food can make one forget a multitude of shortcomings.

not hard at all, food options make WW a dieter's paradise. Impressively unimaginative.

The article wasn't about the stadia so much as about the crowd size.....which so often has to do with the size of the school, etc.

Personally, I love watching football at Wallace Wade Stadium. Great memories from my childhood when my dad took me to games starting in 1966 when I was seven. Now I'm taking my family there building more memories. My grandson went to his first game there in 2012 when he was seven and I truly hope someday he is taking his kids to games at Wallace Wade.

My dad turns 88 next month so I hope to get him to a game again this coming season. His last trip was the win over North Carolina last season.

Food trucks would be great for the general crowd but unnecessary for me. TNTDevil and CB&B ensure I am stuffed prior to entry so I only visit the concession stand to buy the grandson popcorn.
