    History

    In the early 1920s, the University of North Carolina began plans for a new football stadium. Most of the funding for the $300,000 stadium came from UNC alumnus William R. Kenan, Jr., who asked that the stadium be named in honor of his parents, William and Mary Hargrave Kenan. The stadium, which originally had a capacity of 24,000, opened on November 12, 1927 with a 27-0 Tarheel victory over Davidson College. Although the seating capacity was not expanded until 1963, temporary bleachers were often set up to increase the capacity to over 40,000. The stadium's capacity was doubled to 48,000 after Kenan donated another $1 million for the project. Further renovations in 1979 and 1988 brought this total to 52,000. A $43 million renovation from 1995-1998 brought the capacity to the current total of 60,000. Plans are underway for another $70 million renovation that will add another 3,000 seats to the stadium and replace the old Kenan Field House with a new student-athlete center.
