James S Malosky Stadium:
Northern Minnesota's premier outdoor athletic venue, James S. Malosky Stadium has been the home of Bulldog football for the past 48 seasons and of UMD women's soccer since its inception in 1994.
And, talk about a home field advantage. In 234 lifetime appearances at Malosky Stadium heading into the 2011 season, the Bulldogs have posted a 177-53-4 overall football record for .765 winning percentage. Only five times has UMD ever failed to produce a .500 or above mark at the on-campus facility, which is named after legendary Bulldog football coach Jim Malosky and opened on Oct. 29, 1966. Women's soccer has likewise experienced plenty of success at Malosky Stadium, going 102-36-10 (.723) there while turning in a trio of perfect home records (8-0 in 2009, 7-0 in 1998 and 10-0 in 1995).
Five summers ago, a $6.5 million, four-level structure, which includes a concession area, spacious club room and press/broadcast facilities, was added to the grandstand. The following year, a new $325,000 scoreboard, 48’ x 33’ in size, was added to the north end zone and now contains a 12’ x 22’ LED videoscreen (Check out the full article here.) In 1999, Malosky Stadium underwent a $1.6 million facelift, complete with the installation of a new football playing surface -- which was replaced five years later with A-Turf -- along with an eight-lane, all-weather track.
In addition to housing the football, women’s soccer and track and field Bulldogs, the 4,500-seat Malosky Stadium also hosts a number of high school athletic events throughout the year as well as various UMD intramural activities.
