The Stadium Bowl (originally Tacoma Stadium) is a 15,000-seat stadium in the northwest United States, located in Tacoma, Washington. The stadium plays host to the American football teams for both Woodrow Wilson High School and Stadium High School.
Originally opened 107 years ago in 1910, the stadium had a capacity of 32,000. It has hosted concerts and events for Louis Armstrong, John Pershing, Marshal Foch, Babe Ruth, Billy Sunday, William Jennings Bryan, and United States Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Warren Harding.
It has also seen major college football: the Washington State Cougars of Pullman played twice at Tacoma Stadium in the 1940s; against Texas A&M in December 1941, and Penn State on Thanksgiving weekend in 1948.
