Seating capacity for the Glass Bowl is 26,038.

“We are very proud of the support we receive from the Toledo community,” said Deputy Athletic Director Dave Nottke. “Obviously, we have a very good football team for our fans to come out and enjoy.

We feel the entertainment value of Rocket football is among the best in the country.”
