Memorial Stadium (Indiana University old)


Memorial Stadium (Indiana University old)

Memorial Stadium was a stadium in Bloomington, Indiana. It was primarily used for college football, and was the home field of the Indiana University football team between 1925 and 1959, prior to the opening of the new Memorial Stadium. The stadium held 20,000 people and was built in 1925. The stadium replaced Jordan Field which had served as the home field for the program since 1887.[1] The stadium was renamed Tenth Street Stadium in 1971.[2] It was later used to host the Little 500 and was demolished in 1982 after being featured in the movie Breaking Away.[2] The site of the former stadium today serves as a green space and site of recreation fields in the center of campus known as The Arboretum.
