The Stadium is the home of the 1995 Las Vegas Bowl and the 1995 MAC Champions: the Toledo Rockets football team. It was completed in 1937 at a cost of $335,000 to facilitate the University football team. It has a seating capacity of 26,248. This facility was built by Works Projects Administration (WPA) labors and is one of the oldest stadium in the MAC, but is modernized by the astroturf playing field and the electric scoreboard, which was added in 1975 for $100,000, fully paid for by advertising.

In 1961, the University of Toledo procured a genuine rocket from the U.S. Army missile program. The one-ton rocket, which sits outside the Glass Bowl aimed to hit the 50 yard line of arch-rival Bowling Green's Doyt Perry stadium carries two sets of fins and a propellant booster capable of guiding the missile to supersonic velocity.

The Glass Bowl has undergone several renovations in the last 60 years. The most extensive of these came in 1990, when seating was expanded from 18,500 to the present capacity of 26,248. A three-story press tower was constructed and houses 40 executive loges, a 400-seat stadium club, and the sports information offices. Fans can watch a live, five-camera closed-circuit broadcast of Rocket games on the more than 75 television monitors throughout the tower. The third component of the $18-million project was the construction of a team facility building -- the Larimer Athletic Complex -- at the open end of the stadium horseshoe.

The Stadium is used by both university and professional sports teams, as well as being used for commencement, concerts and other entertainment purposes.
