New York Urban League Classic

 Giants Stadium was a stadium located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA, in the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Maximum seating capacity was 80,242. The structure itself was 756 feet long, 592 feet wide and 144 feet high from service level to the top of the seating bowl and 178 feet high to the top of the south tower. The volume of the stadium was 64,500,000 cubic feet. 13,500 tons of structural steel were used in the building process and 29,200 tons of concrete were poured. It was owned and operated by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.

In the early 1970s the New York Giants, who at the time were sharing Yankee Stadium with the New York Yankees baseball team, began looking for a home of their own. In 1973, the Giants signed an agreement to move to New Jersey and play at a new stadium in the New Jersey Meadowlands. While the stadium was being built, the Giants played in Connecticut at the Yale Bowl and at Shea Stadium in Queens, sharing the latter with the New York Jets. The Giants moved into their new home in 1976, and in 1984 the Jets joined them after failing to secure a lease renewal with the city of New York to stay in Shea Stadium.
