the 77 Club

Imagine a dazzling fall afternoon, the trees ablaze in color, Illini fans stretching in a sea of orange and blue beneath you. As a member of the exclusive 77 Club, named after Illinois legend Red Grange, whose number 77 is one of two retired Illini jerseys, this is your view from the outdoor terrace, running the length of the stadium’s west side on the Memorial Stadium’s sixth level. Behind you are glass doors leading to the lap of luxury: the 77 Club itself. Once inside, you are greeted by close friends and longtime Illini fans, all enjoying the benefits of a comfortably furnished lounge area, enhanced 77 Club restrooms, theater-style seats, television monitors, and a gourmet gameday buffet. Featuring magnificent mid-field views of the action from a climate-controlled setting, the 77 Club offers something for everyone. With only two hundred available, enjoy the game from the most exclusive seats in the stadium!  Click Here to view more pictures of this area.
