About the Rose Bowl
The original stadium, a 57,000-seat horseshoe open on the south end, cost $272,198.26. The Tournament financed the project by offering ten-year subscription tickets for $100 each. Once it was completed, it was deeded to the city of Pasadena.
Local newspaper reporter Harlan “Dusty” Hall, who also served as the Tournament’s press agent, came up with the name “Rose Bowl” for the stadium, and on January 1, 1923, the Tournament held its first football game there.
The stadium grew with the Rose Bowl Game’s popularity. In 1928, the south end was filled in, increasing the seating capacity to 76,000. Further enlargements took place in 1932 (83,677), 1949 (100,807) and 1972 (104,696). The current seating capacity is approximately 93,000, although stadium room was found for a record crowd of 106,869 on January 1, 1973.
