Originally built in 1893 and completed in 1923, Memorial Field consists of a football field surrounded by a 400 meter track with throwing areas for the track team. 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 Varsity 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 11,000 spectators.
