Scott Stadium (officially the Carl Smith Center, Home of David A. Harrison III Field at Scott Stadium), located in Charlottesville, Virginia, is the home of the Virginia Cavaliers football team. It sits on the University of Virginia's Grounds, east of Hereford College and first-year dorms on Alderman Road but west of Brown College and the Lawn. Constructed in 1931, it is the oldest active football stadium in Virginia. Scott Stadium, with a capacity of 61,500, is the 27th largest university-owned college football stadium and is tied with Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears, as the 69th largest stadium by capacity in America when including the 31 National Football League professional venues and college stadia not owned by any university, such as the Cotton Bowl and the Rose Bowl. It also hosts other events, such as concerts for bands that can fill an entire stadium, such as the Dave Matthews Band in 2001, The Rolling Stones in 2005, and U2 in 2009. The Virginia High School League held its Group AAA Division 5 and 6 State Championship games at the stadium in December 2007 and will returned for the 2009 and 2010 seasons. The facility has also hosted the Division I NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship in 1977 and 1982 and the ACC Women's Lacrosse Tournament in 2008.
