Hawaii Warriors Tickets for Sale

During the first week of every February, the NFL comes to town. The Pro Bowl, which features pro football's brightest stars, attracts thousands of people to the 50th state and Aloha Stadium. The event has been held at the stadium for the past 23 years and has been sold out all but once.

The stadium, which can be transformed into a baseball configuration, has also experienced the allure of the national pastime. During the 1970s and '80s, the Triple-A Hawai'i Islanders of the Pacific Coast League played its games at Aloha Stadium. Hawai'i fans got their first taste of Major League Baseball in 1997, when the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals played a three-game series at the stadium.

The UH baseball team also played several of its games there, including May 19, 1979. All-American pitcher Derek Tatsuno made his final home start before 18,345, the largest crowd in NCAA history at that time.

Many big-name musicians have performed before packed crowds at the stadium. Van Halen, the Eagles, the Rolling Stones, Gloria Estefan, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Janet Jackson, and the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson, were visitors of the stadium. Most notably, Michael Jackson's 1997 concerts were his only U.S. appearance in the "History" World Tour.

The stadium also serves as host to the state's future sports stars. The Hawai'i High School Athletic Association holds its annual football, baseball, and soccer championships on the turf. As the state's largest outdoor facility, numerous high schools take advantage of its size and hold their graduations there.

Aloha Stadium regularly hosts tractor pulls, motocross races, and a popular swap meet, which is held in the stadium's parking lot. Hawai'i's 50th State Fair, Farm Fair, and a Sports Carnival are also held there annually.

The Stadium
Unique in its structure, Aloha Stadium features four, 3.5 million pound mobile grandstands, which can transform into three different configurations. Each grandstand holds 7,000 seats and with the use of the "air film" principle, can configure into a traditional diamond for baseball and soccer, an oval for football, and a triangle for concerts and plays, in just 30 minutes. A few years ago, the stadium was covered with $2.5 million Astroturf.

The stadium is equipped with professional-caliber facilities for its tenants. Four spacious locker rooms that fit 100 lockers each are available to teams. In addition, there are training rooms, sauna areas, hydrotherapy units, lounges, and team rooms and offices for coaches, trainers, and physicians. On the stadium's loge section, two press boxes seat nearly 200 members of the media, stadium officials, and VIPs.

The stadium also provides public services such as first aid, security, lost and found, concessions, telephones, disability parking and seating, hearing impaired devices, I.D. bracelets, and nearly 40 restrooms. Concession stands, which are abundant throughout the stadium, feature selections from nationally acclaimed chef Sam Choy, and choices, which include sports arena standards and a variety of local favorites. Its box office is open six days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Just off the waters of historic Pearl Harbor lies Aloha Stadium, home of the University of Hawai'i football team. For the past 27 years, the 50,000-seat facility has served as the home field to the only NCAA Division I football program in the state.

Aloha Stadium has seen its share of memorable moments in UH history. Since current head coach June Jones took over the coaching duties three years ago, the stadium has returned to its glory years with packed houses and raucous crowds.

Last year, the Warriors knocked off Fresno State before a nationwide audience, and handed Brigham Young its first defeat in the season finale in front of a sellout crowd. In 1999, Jones' first year at UH, the Warriors capped off the biggest turnaround in NCAA history with a victory over Oregon State in the Jeep Oahu Bowl.

Hawai'i made its stadium debut on Sept. 13, 1975, against Texas A&I after playing in legendary Honolulu Stadium for nearly 50 years. It was an adjustment to the team and its fans, as Aloha Stadium stands 10 miles from the Manoa campus, whereas Honolulu Stadium, also known as the "Termite Palace," was a mere half-mile away.

The Warriors picked up its first Aloha Stadium victory on Nov. 18, 1975, a 24-7 victory over Portland State, before a crowd of 20,157. Three seasons later, the team played in front of its first packed house as 50,000 jammed into the facility to watch USC knock off Hawai'i, 21-5, in the 1978 season-finale.

In the 1980s, the fans kept coming in droves as the Warriors consistently averaged more than 40,000 per game. In 1984, all nine games drew more than 40,000 fans, including sellouts against Brigham Young and Iowa. Nearly a half-million fans walked through the turnstiles during the 1989 season, not including a sellout crowd in UH's first post-season bowl game, a 33-13 loss to Michigan State in the Jeep Eagle Aloha Bowl.

The 1992 season, in which the Warriors claimed its first Western Athletic Conference championship, was witnessed by an average of 44,432 per game. The numbers declined in the mid-1990s, as did the team's success. But since Jones took over, Hawai'i fans have made Aloha Stadium a true home field advantage.

Hawai'i's Showcase
With its extensive use, Aloha Stadium can be considered the "Madison Square Garden" of the west. During its first year of operation, the facility hosted 67 football games, making it one of the nation's busiest stadiums. For 20 years, Aloha Stadium served as home to the annual Aloha Bowl on Christmas Day. In 1998, the Oahu Bowl was added, completing college football's first bowl doubleheader. Both bowls have since moved out of Honolulu, as was the fate of the annual Hula Bowl all-star game, which was held at the stadium for 24 years until it relocated to Maui in 1999. But beginning this year, the stadium will once again host a collegiate post-season football game on Christmas Day with the introduction of the inaugural Hawai'i Bowl.
