The University of Pennsylvania's proud 125-year football tradition continues each season as the Quakers take the field. Playing in the Ivy League, the Red and Blue bring the excitement of college football to Philadelphia. The historic football stadium in which the Quakers play, Franklin Field, has hosted the best in collegiate and professional competition for most of the century. Originally opened in 1895 (at a cost of $100,000.00) for the first running of the Penn Relays, the stadium was rebuilt 72 years ago. The Field, deemed by the NCAA as the oldest stadium still operating for football games, has been the site of the nation's first scoreboard (1895), the nation's first two-tiered stadium (1922), the first football radio broadcast (WIP, 1922), the first football telecast (PhilCo, 1939) and Vince Lombardi's only NFL playoff loss (1960).
