Football: Taking a look at Warrior Field

Tomorrow afternoon, less than a week after playing a role in ending a seven-year streak, the Waterloo Warriors are set to reverse 50 years of history.

Okay, so the definition of "history" depends on your view of the situation. But it's been a long-running joke for a long time, the Warriors and their previous "home" field. At least now if people want to make fun of Waterloo football, they have to focus on things other than the stadium.

Speaking of the location...the rain stopped just enough this morning to allow for a quick hike over to the north part of campus. (Click for bigger versions of each of these.)

Looking from the hill on the south side of the field, here are the main bleachers and press box...



...the end zone on the west side...



...and on the east...



...and this picture, which answers the age-old question of how many Central Services workers it takes to put in a scoreboard.


It's no Molson Stadium, but it's a start.

Anyway, not only is tomorrow's game against McMaster the first at Warrior Field, it's also a pretty big frosh event. So the attendance, both in the stands shown above and on the grassy hill where those shots were taken from, should be decent. Wonder if we can say the same about this team...
