Adrian College Bulldogs


PERFORMANCE STADIUM Adrian College boasts one of the finest stadiums in NCAA Division III. The Bulldogs opened Multi-Sport Performance Stadium in 2006 and draw big crowds, including this one from 2011 homecoming win over Concordia-Chicago.

The Adrian College Bulldogs have the “crown jewel” of Division III football stadiums. The Multi-Sport Performance Stadium is entering its seventh year of existence on the campus of Adrian College and is a premier facility. The $6.5 million dollar masterpiece was completed in time for the beginning of the 2006 season. The football team has enjoyed a .686 winning percentage (24-11) since the stadium opened and will look to continue their success into the 2013 campaign. Not only does the football team enjoy this facility, but Adrian College’s soccer and lacrosse teams also play their home games at Performance Stadium. The stadium seats approximately 3,000 fans with 2,500 chairback seats on the home side and an additional 500 bleacher seats on the visitor side. Features include state-of-the-art FieldTurf, stadium lighting, a fully-wired press box, and an end-zone section for student seating. In addition, there is the James F. Thomas Pavilion which is used for a variety of

events including alumni gatherings on football game-days. In the 1950s, the campus had a football stadium. It was located next to Caine Student Center (then called Ridge Gymnasium). It was later razed to make way for new academic buildings. The College entered a cooperative arrangement in the 1960’s to use the new high school stadium, which the College helped build. The Bulldogs played their home games at Maple Stadium for over four decades before the 2006 season. “The Mape” was the site for several classic battles on the gridiron over the years. The funds for the project were raised through the Adrian College Development Office. Architectural services were provided by Hastings & Chivetta, an industry leader in higher education facilities. The firm designed the Merillat Sport & Fitness Center on campus. Construction management was provided by the Douglas Company.
