Beginning June 22, fans will have the opportunity to tour the National Historic Landmark Rose Bowl Stadium and relive history while walking through the same tunnels and along the same hallowed grounds which some of sports’ greatest players and teams have graced.

The guided public tours include everything from the locker rooms to the post-game interview room; the newly renovated premium-seating pavilion, the working press boxes and the playing field itself, the stadium is a treasure trove of memorable games, big plays and defining careers.”

Modeled after the Yale Bowl and designed by architect Myron Hunt, whose other buildings included the Huntington Art Gallery and the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, the stadium held its first game in 1923.  In addition to hosting the “Granddaddy of Them All” – the annual Rose Bowl Game – and UCLA home football games, the Stadium has hosted three BCS national championship games, five Super Bowls, two World Cups (the 1994 men’s finals and the 1999 women’s finals) and events in two Olympics.

Public walk-up tours will be $17.50 for adults, $14.50 for children, available at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., Thursday through Sunday.  Group tours will also be offered seven days a week for 20 or more people at $12 per person.  Educational tours are $9 per student.
