The Memorial Stadium at the University of Kansas is host to great college football every year. Built in 1921, with major renovations soon after, the stadium now houses just over 50,000 spectators. Dedicated to Kansas University students who fought in World War I, the facility also plays host to the Kansas Relays, a well-known track and field competition.
What started out as a local stage hosting open mic nights blossomed into a full-fledged concert venue. The Bottleneck has hosted concerts of local, national as well as internationally-acclaimed performers. With the likes of Butthole Surfers, Semisonic, Junior Brown, Lucinda Williams, Fastball and Toad the Wet Sprocket having performed here, it doesn't need any sort of sales pitch. Its sole aim is to provide music lovers a treat every week and it does so. For gig guide and other details, check we

Named for the man who led Jayhawks basketball for 39 years, Dr. F.C. "Phog" Allen, the Allen Fieldhouse has been a home for Kansas athletics since it opened in 1955. The fieldhouse has gained prominence in college basketball by hosting many NCAA tournament games and by being labeled "the best place in America to watch college basketball." It can house 16,300 people at capacity, and the stands are often full to watch any number of sporting events held at Allen Fieldhouse. It is also used as a venue for speeches and commencement ceremonies during bad weather.
