About

Up to 300 guests

Memorial Stadium is not only home to the Fighting Illini football team, but also to exquisite event space overlooking Zuppke Field. Never before has Central Illinois had an opportunity to entertain like this! Whether you are hosting an important business meeting, annual event, or an unforgettable wedding reception, Memorial Stadium is your premier venue for entertainment. If you are looking to make an everlasting impression on your guests, consider holding your next event at historical Memorial Stadium.

The Colonnades Club, located on the third level of the stadium’s west side, stretches end zone to end zone and encompasses over 15,000 square feet. Sit-down dinners and receptions for 50 to 500 people will be ideal for this vast space. On Illini game days, this club is home to over 1,100 outdoor club seat holders. During events, the Colonnades Club’s vaulted ceilings and access to the WWI Memorial Columns make this space absolutely magical.

The sixth level of Memorial Stadium is home of the magnificent 77 Club, which honors Illini great, the “Galloping Ghost” Red Grange. This 5,000 square foot space is located midfield and features an outdoor patio area overlooking the city of Champaign. This club offers an upscale lounge for indoor club seat holders on Illini football game days and transforms to a wonderful event space that towers over the home field of the Orange and Blue. Meetings, rehearsal dinners, and receptions for 25 to 150 people make the 77 Club the perfect place to incorporate a little bit of Illinois history into your special event.

For a smaller event, the Illinois Suite on the stadium's top level and south end might be your answer! Looking over Assembly Hall, this luxurious room is used by the University Administration on Fighting Illini Football gamedays, but can be all yours for your next client entertainment event, birthday party, or retirement celebration. This area can seat 10 to 50 people at rounds, or is perfect for receptions of 20-100.

    Not only is the venue perfect for any Illini fan, it is unique for all guests as well. The Colonnades Club was provides a little bit for everything - unique venue, great service, and plenty for everyone to do to enjoy a wedding. There is a great dance floor, outdoor seating overlooking the football field, and comfy seating for those who just wanted to relax. It really lent to a great wedding reception! I would recommend this venue!
