John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy
Stadium (formerly Philadelphia
Municipal Stadium and Sesquicentennial Stadium) was an open-air stadium in Philadelphia
that stood from 1926 to 1992. The South Philadelphia
stadium was situated on the east side of the far southern end of Broad Street at a location that is now part of the South Philadelphia
Sports Complex. Designed by the architectural firm of Simon & Simon[1] in a classic 1920s style with a horseshoe seating design that surrounded a track and football field, at its peak the facility seated in excess of 102,000 people. Bleachers were later added at the open (North) end. Each section of the main portion of the stadium contained its own entrance, which displayed the letters of each section above the entrance, in a nod to ancient Roman stadia. Section designators were divided at the south end of the stadium (the bottom of the "U" shape) between West and East, starting with Sections WA and EA and proceeding north. The north bleachers started with Section NA. It was built of concrete, stone, and brick on a 13.5-acre (55,000 m2) tract.[2]

Opening and names[edit] JFK Stadium was built as part of the 1926 Sesquicentennial International Exposition. Originally known as Sesquicentennial Stadium when it opened April 15, 1926, the structure was renamed Philadelphia Municipal Stadium[3] after the Exposition's closing ceremonies. In 1964, it was renamed John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy
Stadium in memory of the 35th President of the United States who had been assassinated the year before. Football[edit] The stadium's first tenants (in 1926) were the Philadelphia
Quakers of the first American Football League, whose Saturday afternoon home games were a popular mainstay of the Exposition. The Quakers won the league championship but the league folded after one year. The Frankford Yellow Jackets
Frankford Yellow Jackets
also played here intermittently until the team's demise in 1931. Two years later the National Football League awarded another team to the city, the Philadelphia
Eagles. The Eagles had a four-season stint as tenants of the stadium before moving to Shibe Park
Shibe Park
for the 1940 season, although the team did play at Municipal in 1941. The Eagles also used the stadium for practices in the 1970s and 1980s, even locating their first practice bubble there before moving it to the Veterans Stadium
Veterans Stadium
parking lot following the stadium's condemnation.

Railroad trains lined up at a temporary station outside the stadium after the 1955 Army-Navy game

The stadium became known chiefly as the "neutral" venue for a total of 41 annual Army–Navy Games played there between 1936 and 1979, and from 1960 to 1970 it served as Navy's home field when they played Notre Dame. It also hosted the Notre Dame-Army game in 1957, marking the only time the Cadets have hosted the Fighting Irish outside of New York or New Jersey. The Pennsylvania
Railroad and its successors offered game-day service to all Army-Navy games (except several during World War II), using a sprawling temporary station constructed each year on the railroad's nearby Greenwich freight yard. The service, with 40-odd trains serving as many as 30,000 attendees, was the single largest concentrated passenger rail movement in the country.[4][5] A.F. "Bud" Dudley, a former Villanova University
Villanova University
athletic-director, created the Liberty Bowl
Liberty Bowl
in Philadelphia
in 1959. The game was played at Municipal Stadium and was the only cold-weather bowl game of its time. It was plagued by poor attendance; the 1963 game between Mississippi State and NC State drew less than 10,000 fans and absorbed a loss in excess of $40,000. The Liberty Bowl's best game was its first in 1959, when 38,000 fans watched Penn State beat Alabama 7–0. Atlantic City convinced Dudley to move his game from Philadelphia
to Atlantic City's Convention Hall for 1964. 6,059 fans saw Utah rout West Virginia in the first Bowl Game played indoors. Dudley moved the game to Memphis in 1965 where it has been played since.[6] The stadium hosted Philadelphia's City Title high school football championship game in 1939 and 1978. St. Joe's Prep defeated Northeast, 27-6, in 1939. Frankford beat Archbishop Wood, 27-7, in heavy rain in 1978.[7] The stadium was also host to what many[who?] call the "first Super Bowl"[citation needed]. On September 16, 1950, the Cleveland Browns, playing their first season in the NFL after dominating the defunct All-America Football Conference, were matched against the two-time defending NFL Champion Philadelphia
Eagles. It was the first NFL game for the Browns, who had won four straight AAFC championships. Philadelphia
was the center of the professional football universe at the time; not only did the city host the defending NFL Champions, but the league offices were also in town, headed up by NFL commissioner (and Philadelphia
native) Bert Bell. To accommodate the ticket demand, the game was moved from Shibe Park; this proved to be a wise decision, as the contest drew an NFL-record 71,237—nearly doubling the Eagles' prior attendance mark of 38,230. Many thought Bell had scheduled this game of defending league champions to teach the upstarts from the AAFC a lesson; instead, the lesson was imparted by the Browns who won the game 35-10 and went on to win the NFL Championship that first year in the league. In 1958, some 15,000 fans attended a CFL game between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Ottawa Rough Riders
Ottawa Rough Riders
with proceeds from ticket sales going to local charities. (It remains the only regular-season CFL game played between two Canadian teams outside of Canada.) The stadium was home to the Philadelphia
Bell of the World Football League in 1974. The Bell seemed to give the WFL instant credibility when it announced a crowd of 55,534 for the home opener, and 64,719 for the second home game. However, when the Bell paid city taxes on the attendance figures two weeks later, it emerged that the gates had been wildly inflated: the team sold block tickets to area businesses at a discount, and the tax revenue was not reported. In turn, many of these businesses gave away the tickets for free. The actual paid attendance for the home opener was only 13,855, while the paid attendance for the second game was only 6,200—and many of those tickets were sold well below face value. The "Papergate" scandal made the Bell and the WFL look foolish, and proved to be a humiliation from which neither recovered. The team played at Franklin Field
Franklin Field
in 1975. Other sports[edit] On September 23, 1926, an announced crowd of 120,557 packed the then-new Stadium during a rainstorm to witness Gene Tunney
Gene Tunney
capture the world heavyweight boxing title from Jack Dempsey. Undefeated Rocky Marciano knocked out Jersey Joe Walcott
Jersey Joe Walcott
at the stadium in 1952 to win boxing's heavyweight championship. On June 26, 1957, a 150-lap NASCAR convertible race was held at the Stadium, which was won by Bob Welborn
Bob Welborn
in a 1957 Chevrolet.[8] JFK Stadium hosted Team America's soccer match against England on May 31, 1976, as part of the 1976 U.S.A. Bicentennial Cup Tournament. In the game, England defeated Team America, 3-1, in front of a small crowd of 16,239. England and Italy had failed to qualify for the 1976 European Championship final tournament and so they joined Brazil and Team America, composed of international stars playing in the North American Soccer League, in the four team competition. Because Team America was composed of international players and was not the American national team, the Football Association does not regard England's match against Team America as an official international match.[9] JFK Stadium was one of fifteen United States stadia (and along with Franklin Field, also in Philadelphia) inspected by a five-member FIFA committee in April 1988 in the evaluation of the United States as a possible host of the 1994 FIFA
World Cup.[10] By the time the World Cup was held in 1994, JFK Stadium had already been demolished two years prior. Other events[edit] The Philadelphia
Flyers won their second Stanley Cup
Stanley Cup
on May 27, 1975, and celebrated with a parade down Broad Street the next day that ended at the stadium. Five years later, the Philadelphia
Phillies won their first World Series on October 21 of that year. The following day, the team paraded the exact route. In 1981, The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones
announced their World Tour via a press conference at JFK.[11] Through 1989, the Broad Street Run course ended with a lap around the track at the stadium. Concerts[edit]

The Rolling Stones
performed before a crowd of 100,000 fans. Opening acts included Bob Marley's former bandmate Peter Tosh and Foreigner. After The Stones finished their dispirited 45 minute-set, disgruntled concert goers, many of whom had waited through 12 hours of drizzle, began throwing anything they could get, onto the stage that was shaped into the "tongue" logo.[citation needed] In early May 1981 on a Saturday, a concert called The Roundup, which included bands .38 Special, Marshall Tucker Band, Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws and the Allman Brothers, took place in one of the original All Day concert events starting at 10 a.m. Another all-star show was staged at JFK on July 30, 1978 that featured the Sanford-Townsend Band, Bob Welch, Steve Miller, and Fleetwood Mac. The Bob Welch and Steve Miller sets were marred by PA system problems. The Fleetwood Mac set was marred by the unreliable vocals of Stevie Nicks, who was disinterested at best and off-key or off-tempo at worst. The rest of the band was strong, however, especially Lindsey Buckingham's guitar work and Christine McVie's vocals.[citation needed] The Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones
opened their 1981 American Tour ("Tattoo You") with two shows at JFK Stadium, on September 25 and 26, 1981. (The Stones pre-opened the tour with a warm-up show at the Sir Morgan's Cove club in Worcester, Massachusetts, on September 14, 1981.) Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger
met the press at JFK Stadium on August 26, 1981, to announce the tour. On July 3, 1982, Rick James performed in concert at JFK Stadium, called "The Throwdown in Phillytown." Also featured were Frankie Beverly and Maze, Kool and the Gang, Atlantic Starr, and One Way featuring Al Hudson. Blondie concluded their Tracks Across America Tour here, on August 21, 1982. They disbanded shortly thereafter, due to guitarist Chris Stein being diagnosed with a rare life-threatening disease, pemphigus and The Hunter having sold very poorly. They did not perform live again for 15 years, until 1997. Genesis was the headliner and used the open air stadium for one of their spectacular nighttime laser and fireworks shows. The show started at 3pm and also featured Elvis Costello
Elvis Costello
& The Attractions, A Flock of Seagulls, and Robert Hazard & The Heroes. The Who
The Who
performed at the stadium on September 25, 1982, early into their (then) Farewell Tour which also supported their album It's Hard. Opening acts for the show were Santana, The Clash, and The Hooters. A total of 91,451 were in attendance, one of the largest ticketed single-show, non-festival stadium concerts ever held in the U.S., as documented by Billboard.[14] Journey headlined a concert June 4, 1983. The show featured Bryan Adams, The Tubes, Sammy Hagar
Sammy Hagar
and John Cougar
John Cougar
(as John Mellencamp was referred to at the time). This show provided the majority of the concert footage for an NFL Films produced documentary, called Journey, Frontiers and Beyond. On August 20, 1983, The Police headlined another "JFK Jam" as these multi-act, all-day shows were being referred to. This time the opening acts were R.E.M., Madness, and Joan Jett. Pop Group The Jacksons
The Jacksons
performed for 4 sold-out shows in September 1984 during their Victory Tour in front of 240,000 in attendance, one of the largest audiences of the tour. Live Aid
Live Aid
was primarily a dual-venue concert held on July 13, 1985. The event was held simultaneously at JFK Stadium (attended by about 100,000 people) and at Wembley Stadium, in London (attended by 72,000 people), as well as other venues in other countries. Musical acts that appeared in Philadelphia
included Madonna, REO Speedwagon, Bryan Adams, Eric Clapton, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest the former members of Led Zeppelin, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner and Bob Dylan, accompanied by Keith Richards
Keith Richards
and Ronnie Wood, of The Rolling Stones. Phil Collins
Phil Collins
performed at Wembley Stadium, travelled by helicopter to Heathrow Airport, flew to Philadelphia
via Concorde
supersonic jet and performed at JFK Stadium. On July 10, 1987 an historic pairing of Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan
and The Grateful Dead performed to 90,000-plus fans on a sweltering afternoon. At the conclusion of the concert, a local, young music fan named Mike Beilaus, using only his bare hands somehow climbed to the top of the roof of the Philadelphia
Eagles' enormous, white, indoor practice facility (referred to as Buddy's Bubble) which was located at the open end of the massive horseshoe-shaped stadium. Beilaus did this shirtless and with a beer in his back pocket. Upon reaching the top of the "Bubble", he saluted with his Budweiser beer the tens of thousands who were still in the parking lot. He then slid down the "Bubble" uncontrollably at a high rate of speed cutting his arms and chest on the steel wire that gave shape to the huge inflatable practice dome. As luck would have it he landed in the only safe place that surrounded the "Bubble", a pile of sand just 3 feet from a large commercial cement mixer. He sprung up laughing and finished his beer. Members of the Philadelphia
Police Department chastised and congratulated him on his endeavor but declined to pursue the matter further. Local news footage captured most of the escapade. "Buddy's Bubble" can be seen in the accompanying photograph of The Amnesty International
Amnesty International
concert. U2 performed at the stadium on September 25, 1987, during their Joshua Tree Tour, in front of a crowd of 86,145 people. Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd
held a concert on September 19, 1987, in front of a crowd in excess of 120,000 (general admission was sold on the field), but the show was not sold out.[citation needed] The stadium played host to The Monsters of Rock Festival Tour, featuring Van Halen, Scorpions, Dokken, Metallica
and Kingdom Come, on June 11, 1988. The stadium also played host to Amnesty International's Human Rights Now! Benefit Concert on September 19, 1988. The show was headlined by Sting and Peter Gabriel
Peter Gabriel
and also featured Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen
& the E Street Band, Tracy Chapman, Youssou N'Dour
Youssou N'Dour
and Joan Baez. It was not known at the time, but the stadium's last event was the Grateful Dead's concert on July 7, 1989, with Bruce Hornsby
Bruce Hornsby
& The Range as their opening act. Fans at the show recall concrete crumbling and bathrooms in poor shape. The Dead closed the show with "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"; it would be the last song played at the stadium.[15] In 2010, the concert recording was released on a CD/DVD combination, titled Crimson White & Indigo. On August 28, 29, and 30, 1989, in preparation for opening their 1989 Steel Wheels tour in Philadelphia
(Veterans Stadium, August 31, 1989), the Rolling Stones set up their stage inside JFK Stadium for two full dress-rehearsal performances on August 28 and 29, 1989. A few dozen fans were allowed to enter the stadium to attend these rehearsals. Closing and demolition[edit] Six days after the Grateful Dead's 1989 show, then-Mayor Wilson Goode condemned the stadium due to multiple findings by city inspectors that the structure was structurally unsafe and a potential fire hazard. Just hours before the concert, city inspectors discovered piles of combustible materials, numerous electrical problems, and crumbling concrete. There had been reports of falling concrete for some time before then. The Grateful Dead
The Grateful Dead
concert was allowed to go ahead due to strict no-smoking regulations that had been enacted some time before.[16] Renovating and repairing the stadium was quickly ruled out, and it was demolished on September 23, 1992.[17][18][19][20] The 1993 Philadelphia
stop for the Lollapalooza
music festival was held at the JFK Stadium site on July 18, 1993. The site was an open field as construction had not yet begun on the then still tentatively named "Spectrum II" (Wells Fargo Center). This was the show at which Rage Against the Machine
Rage Against the Machine
stood on stage without playing in protest of the Parents Music Resource Center.[21] The Wells Fargo Center now stands on the site, which is part of the complex that also includes Lincoln Financial Field
Lincoln Financial Field
and Citizens Bank Park. References[edit]
