From 1938-1992, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team played at old Rutgers Stadium, which had been built by the Works Progress Administration. In 1993, the stadium was torn down and an entirely new stadium was built on the site at a cost of $28 million. After playing the 1993 season at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, the Scarlet Knights opened the new stadium on September 3, 1994 with a 28-6 victory over Kent State. The new stadium had a capacity of 41,500 and had a horseshoe design with an open-ended south end zone. After a $102 million renovation and expansion in 2008 and 2009, the stadium's capacity reached 52,454. In addition to addition seating in the south end zone and other areas, a large lounge and club seating were constructed. About $85 million of the renovation project was funded through bonds.
