Rice-Eccles Stadium, home of University of Utah Football, is the largest sports facility in the Salt Lake area and seats up to 47,000 fans. Rice-Eccles underwent a major renovation in 1997-98 in preparation for the opening and closing ceremonies of the the 2002 Winter Olympics. In addition to football, the stadium hosts major concert tours such as U2 and the Rolling Stones, and sporting events such as motocross. Event facilities in the stadium's west tower can be rented for weddings and other large parties.
