My alma mater. What can I say about Carter Finley? It was built in in 1966 and now has a seating capacity of 57,583. All I can say is if you are ever in Raleigh on a warm fall day try tailgating with the friendlist people in the South. We will offer you some Bojangles chicken and a beer to... More

We had season tickets to NC State Football Games this year and really enjoyed our time at Carter Finley. It's an older stadium, but it's well kept and always fun on game day. We're lucky to have such great facilities in our area that people can enjoy. Our seats were the second row from the very top, but even from... More

The stadium is clean and spacious and the field is well-maintained. The weather was unpredictable when we went, but it was totally worth the game. My only complaint is that the rows and seat numbers need to be clearly labeled. We sat in seats that we thought were ours because we couldn't really read the numbers or letters on the... More

Football game- Parking and directions for football was confusing with no signs. Directions to gates were vague. Then try to find you seats in the upper deck. Wow, sections have the seat numbers start in the middle from the stairs. Yea go figure how the decided to do it that way. Then on top of it the numbers of the... More

Just returned from a football game - everyone was very friendly and helpful, stadium was very nice and all seats seemed to have good views. Just a reminder that they do have a limit on the size of your purse so use a clear bag for anything that you would like to bring into the game.

The seating is so poorly labeled we had to ask for directions, and even the ushers had difficulty. They also do not let Uber drivers ANYWHERE near the stadium. It was insane that we had to walk over a mile to find our driver given the whole point is that we are driven. It was absolutely ridiculous. Terrible organization of... More

This is one of THE BEST experiences you could have in Raleigh! The Wolfpack football experience is so exciting. Game days are filled with fun and fellowship! You'll meet tons of new people and get to see one of the best teams in college football! GO WOLFPACK!

Here to see NC State football on a dreary Thursday night game. Unless you are a season ticket holder, be prepared to walk up to a mile on uneven surfaces to get to the stadium. Walk includes route through rowdy students tailgating; if you are wearing the opposing team's color, be prepared for some foul language from drunks. Once at... More

The food is mediocre, but you can bring a grill and cook your own at your parking space. No alcohol is allowed, but discreet folks rarely get grief. The food inside is a very small selection, so at least take your own sandwiches. You cannot take any food or drink in to the stadium, so do get there early and... More
