We were here as Bomber fans at the home of the Stampeders. The stadium is old and lacks a lot of upgraded services we are used to but the vintage vibe and super friendly Calgary fans make for a great time!

I like watching football live and this is a good enough stadium for that. My issue is with the bathroom facilities. If there are worse ones in the CFL I would like to know where. The stench is incredible. the line ups horrendous, and there is virtually no privacy. In addition having only one stall per bathroom is right out... More

Stampeders home field. Great atmosphere, older stadium. Bring a cushion for the aluminum bench seat. If there are a few larger people in your group it's worth having an extra space too. (We had six spots for five of us). The facility was overcrowded for the event I would expect a regular season game would handle the crowd better. The... More

McMahon is nice enough, has pretty good food venues, can't get over the smell most of the time. Bathrooms are always smelling like urine as do the halls. Yuk!! Seats are okay, but you need to bring your own cushion and/or blanket.

Great old stadium but in need of some upgrades. The bench seating is really uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Drink and food prices are way too high and lack variety. Sound system is poor.

I went to the 2016 Labor Day classic with my friend and his family. Pretty good seats but if you want a great seat bring 2 or 3 people

Once upon a time this was a credible university/CFL stadium. Those times are long gone now. The concourse is far too narrow making getting around almost virtually impossible to get around. The burgers at the south entrance are great stadium food as well. Go Stamps Go!!

It's a decent enough old stadium, but it's past its prime. Not particularly comfortable or atmospheric. They have done some cosmetic work on it, but it's putting a bandaid on it. It's old and concrete, not the best place to watch games!

Enjoyed a stampeders game last night. Great music playing outside when we are in. Loved our seats.. The lady selling our tickets gave us family fun zone prices in another section just so we could all sit together. The only bad part is that our team ..saskatchewan roughriders lost lol!!
