About the Facility
Originally built in 1893 and completed as it stands today in 1923, Memorial Field consists of a 30,000 square foot stadium, a football field and a track.
The stadium facilities include concession areas, restrooms, and a pressbox. The stadium is a brick and concrete structure and features black wrought iron fencing that encloses its West Stands.State-of-the-art FieldTurf surface was installed on Memorial Field in 2006. The newest generation FieldTurf surface features reinforced spine monofilament, silica sand, and cryogenic rubber infill that simulates natural grass. In conjunction with construction of Floren Varisty House, the upper tiers (about two-thirds of the 9,500 seats in the East Stands) were removed. The remaining seats in the East Stands have been extended to match the 7,100-seat West Stands. Including temporary end-zone seating, Memorial Field has a seating capacity for about 15,000 spectators.
When no varsity sport practices or games are in progress, the facility is open for general use.
