    History

    Scott Stadium, or Carl Smith Center, Home of David A. Harrison III Field at Scott Stadium, has been the home of the Virginia Cavaliers football team since 1931. The stadium's $300,000 price tag was partially funded by University Rector Frederic Scott. When it opened on October 15, 1931, the stadium had a capacity of 25,000. This was increased to 41,000 in 1981 and to 60,000 in 2000, after alumnus Carl Smith donated $25 million to renovating the stadium. As part of the 2000 renovation, luxury boxes, a large audio/video tower called "Hoo-Vision", and other amenities were also installed. From 1931 to 1974, a mounted Cavalier would lead the football team on to the field. With the installation of artificial turf in 1975, this tradition was halted. However, in 1995, David A. Harrison provided funding to reinstall natural grass, which lead to the reinstitution of this tradition. In honor of his gift, the playing surface was renamed David A. Harrison III Field. For many years, it was a tradition for men to wear coats and ties and women to wear sun dresses to Cavaliers games at Scott Stadium. In 2003, head coach Al Groh challenged fans to wear orange t-shirts instead.
