About the stadium

Veterans Memorial Stadium has been the home of the Red Ravens since 2001.

The stadium opened for football on August 25, 2001 in the “Border Battle” revival versus NEO.

Veterans Memorial Stadium seats approximately 5,500 fans, although opening night drew a crowd in excess of 6,000 people.  The stadium has also been sold out for the 2004, 2006 and 2010 games against Butler.

The stadium hosted the Dalton Defenders Bowl from 2002 through 2006.  The stadium was also host for the 2006 and 2007 NJCAA National Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

The stadium features a state-of-the-art field-turf surface, similar to those used at several four-year universities.  The facility is also known for a pulsating sound system and terrific views of the surrounding area from its hilltop location.

The stadium was officially dedicated on July 4, 2001 with a gala fireworks show and a country music festival featuring Ricky Van Shelton.
