Stunning video from the Xfinity Center at the University of Maryland College Park. The wardrobe change at 0:40 is genius.
What particularly warms Stadiafile’s heart? So many new-build arenas on college campuses across America mysteriously lose the unique gameday atmosphere of the great old buildings they replaced (see: Matt Knight Arena, University of Oregon). But at Maryland’s Xfinity Center, perhaps due to the unique seating bowl or the colorful seats or the incredibly passionate, creative student body, (but definitely not because of a catchy or iconic sounding name) the energy of old Cole Fieldhouse is still on full display. Carry on college hoops, we love you. Enjoy!
