A rendering of the football stadium at the NSU Regional Athletic Complex

The sports facility is anchored by a football stadium that holds approximately 4,000 spectators with a state-of-the-art artificial turf playing surface. The stadium includes full locker rooms, a press box, meeting space, stadium seating, concessions and additional facilities to enhance the fan experience.

South of the football stadium, new softball fields with associated stands complete the sports complex. Associated areas include dugouts, a press box and stadium seating for 300. Both the football and softball fields are structured with an extensive foundation system to ensure the optimal playing surface for student-athletes. Ensuring appropriate drainage of the fields is critical to account for the South Dakotan climate.
