History[edit] Opened 117 years ago in 1901 on September 21, it was built via the efforts of CU student body.[1] The field was named after Judge Harry P. Gamble, a six time (1891–96) football letterman and two-time captain.[1] Seating capacity was initially limited to 1,000 via a 160-foot (50 m) wooden grandstand located on the western side of the field, the only side that had stands.[1] The elevation of the playing field was just over 5,400 feet (1,645 m) above sea level. Usage[edit] Gamble served multiple types of events, including university football, baseball, track and field, as well as rallies and other events. The field was surrounded by a quarter-mile track, with baseball played with some adjustments to the field and rules specific to Gamble Field.[1] The complex was surrounded by a wooden wall.[1] The last football game at Gamble was a 31–0 win on October 4, 1924, with the team moving to the larger Colorado Stadium for the remainder or the year.[1] The Colorado football team compiled a record of 112–45–12 during the 24 years of use, including a 21-game winning streak over five seasons.[1] University Memorial Center is now located on the site.[1] References[edit]
