Hornet Stadium - Opened in 1969 and still in use. Home field for Sacramento State football and track and field. Onetime home to the Sacramento Surge of the WLAF (1992), the Sacramento Gold Miners of the CFL (1993-1994) and the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL (2010-2011) The stadium was the site of the first ever CFL game played outside of Canada. The date was July 7, 1993 and the Calgary Stampeders beat the Gold Miners 38-36. It also hosted the first game between US franchises of the CFL in 1993. The Las Vegas Posse defeated the Gold Miners 32-26. The Gold Miners moved to San Antonio for the 1995 season and were reborn as the Texans. The team and all of the US CLF teams folded after the 1995 season. The biggest crowds at Hornet Stadium are usually reserved for the Causeway Football Classic, which pits Sacramento State against their arch rival U. C. Davis. The two schools are separated by 20 miles via the Yolo Causeway and I-80.

Location - Between College Town Drive and Stadium Drive on the campus of Cal. State Sacramento. The stadium is at the south end of campus and is easily reached by US 50.
