Capacity at the stadium is 57,500 but tickets for the ceremonies cost $885.

The university's first stadium was built in 1927 and adopted the name of Robert L. Rice in 1972 when he donated $1m.

In 1998 a new stadium was completed and the name changed again thanks to a $10m gift from the Eccles Foundation.
