Stadium Histories Added

Posted by Mike on July 21, 2014

The addition of box score data back to 1922 has also helped us fill in our game location data back to 1922, so we have created an index of NFL/AAFC stadiums, from the Alamo Dome to Yankee Stadium. The stadium pages have links to first and last game box scores, as well as career, game, and playoff game leaders for a given stadium (since 1960, the first year for which we have player game stats). This covers nearly the entire history of Lambeau Field and every game played at every other stadium that's currently home to an NFL team (plus Wembley Stadium and the Rogers Centre). And it's fitting that with the park celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, we now have a record of every Bears and Cardinals game at Wrigley Field.

The stadium data has also been added to the player game finder and the team game finder, which will let you search for things like all players to throw 4 or more passing TDs at Gillette Stadium or all Chiefs' Monday night games at Arrowhead Stadium.

    Great addition Mike. I have noted the order of stadiums from the drop down box in the Game & Player Finders is somewhat jumbled and I cannot determine the sort order. Can you please fix this or explain?

    Also any update on the Team Streak Finder?

    Thanks as always.

    Would there be any chance of adding an "alternate names" field so I can search for non-corporate names like "Metrodome" or "Jack Murphy Stadium"?
