City College’s Hughes Stadium, a venerable Sacramento sports landmark, has endured a long and storied history culminating with the current renovations taking place this spring and continuing through 2012.

The stadium has seen a lot since it first opened on Oct. 13, 1928. The 83-year-old monument, with a seating capacity of up to 23,000, has hosted all types of sporting events. Built primarily as a football stadium, it has largely remained so to this day. Still, athletes run across its track every day. Dive onto its grassy field, or run up its worn stairs in an effort to reach the sky.

Numerous musical acts have had their golden voices echo across the stadium. Pink Floyd played here. So did Linda Rondstadt.

“[The] hope is to bring the stadium back into full operation in September [2012],” Martinelli said.
