Athletics Facilities Arkansas State University’s athletic programs compete in top-of-the line facilities. ASU Stadium, which opened in 1974, has evolved into a beautiful stadium which seats 30,406 fans. That includes a cluster of exclusive suites in the south end zone atop the football office complex. A million dollar video/scoreboard is the focal point in the stadium. Coaches and student-athletes moved into a new $2.7 million track and field complex in spring 2004. It contains an eight-lane 400-meter track and can be set up for two NCAA venues. Three local country clubs graciously allow ASU’s men’s and women’s golf programs to utilize their facilities for practice and play. J.A. “Ike” Tomlinson Stadium-Kell Field serves as home to Red Wolves baseball. Built in 1993, the stadium received complete lighting in 1996 and, most recently, 206 field level seats were added for the 2008 season. ASU’s newest women’s program, bowling, competes in the Jonesboro Bowling Center, a 40lane state-of-the-art facility.

The ASU Soccer Park opened in 2001, one year after the program was installed. It is located at the north end of ASU Stadium and accommodates seating for 500. The complex also is the office headquarters for the program. The Convocation Center seats 10,038 for basketball and is the home of ASU’s men’s and women’s teams. It also is the site for women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s indoor track and field. ASU’s cross country teams run on a wellplanned course which originates and has its finish line at the Garry Meadows Arena at the Equine Center.
