Standing at the corner of 33rd and Spruce Street on Penn's campus, FranklinField is a Philadelphia landmark. Built in 1895 for the Penn Relays, the stadium was expanded and modernized in 1922, looking like the stadium you know today.
Penn began playing football at the stadium in 1895, and it has been home to hundreds of historic games in the 120+ years since. In 1907, Jim Thorpe led the Carlisle Indians to a 26-6 win over Penn, and in 1925 Red Grange ran for a record 331 yards in an Illinois defeat of Penn. The Eagles won the 1960 NFL title at FranklinField. Eight years later,Santa Claus was booed there.
Several teams in numerous sports have called the stadium home. The Stars and Bell were two pro football teams that played there in addition to the Eagles, the Philadelphia Atoms spent a season there, and the Spinners of Major League Ultimate play there today.
It has also hosted the Penn Relays annually since 1895, one of the most famous track events in the world. FranklinField has played host to not only Bolt but Michael Johnson, Sanya Richards-Ross, and dozes of other Olympic stars.
