Went to a football game here recently. Word of advice- bring or rent a stadium chair! There are no backs to these bleachers and sitting for 3 hours on a cold metal bleacher with no back would be impossible. The stadium is just not very impressive. The student fan support is seriously lacking. The students for the most part are gone by half time.

Nice stadium. Our game was not close to capacity. Maryland fans were pleasant. Tailgating is in different lots a few blocks from the stadium. All the seats seem pretty good. Heard that from the top deck you can watch the game and see the Lincoln Memorial.

We went to the Maryland-Michigan game (Go Blue!). Maryland has a terrible game-day atmosphere. There were maybe 40,000 fans and I'd guess Michigan fans outnumbered Maryland fans 4-to-1. The stadium has an odd design... they have three decks of bleachers on one side and a large tower of suites on the other, so the whole thing seems unbalanced. The Maryland fans were pretty quiet and their student section was empty by half-time when Michigan led by four TDs. The food selection was terrible. Going off of prior reviews, I was looking for the Chessie and other options, but all we found was standard hot dogs, hamburgers, and pizza (typical stadium fare). With that said, the Maryland fans we talked to were very polite and welcoming.

We go to a few games a year with my friend or my father in law. Wife and I enjoyed our crab braided pretzel and pulled pork sandwich items. Parking at Regent Garage is always helpful. Sadly not too many students go to the games.

Overall, the stadium is ok... biggest drawback is that going to UMD football games isn't all that popular... also, being in the DC area, loads of alumnus go to UMD games to see the away team.

However, they are one of the few stadiums where you can purchase beer inside and they had some really Maryland food items, such as crab cakes, crab fries (fries with a lump crap meat + seasoning) and the 'Chessie' - a larger than normal soft pretzel with crab meat and cheese on top. This pretzel is huge and can easily accommodate a 2-4 people. It is a bit pricey but definitely worth it and should get it at least once. There is also a smaller Chessie that is the size of a normal soft pretzel.
