Memorial Stadium – Indiana Football Stadium
Memorial Stadium is the home of IU Football and a birthplace for Indiana traditions. With the completion of the North End Zone Student-Athlete Development Center, it becomes the epicenter for IU Athletics and a source of pride for all students, alumni and Hoosier fans.
With its two bold towers and expansive seating bowl, this 138,000-square-foot, multi-purpose facility has already become a visible landmark on the IU Bloomington campus. As the new headquarters of Indiana Football, it also serves to represent a commitment to elevating IU Football with training facilities, staff and administrative offices, position meeting rooms, a team auditorium and an underground walkway to practice fields.
The North End Zone Student-Athlete Development Center also serves as a gateway to Indiana University for fans and visitors. Enhancing the game-day atmosphere on football Saturdays, this addition converts Memorial Stadium into a horseshoe layout connecting the East and West stands, complete with a new seating bowl, concourse, concession stand, and outdoor club area. It is also home to the Henke Hall of Champions, a multi-level entertainment space featuring beautiful hardwood floors, stunning wooden arches, floor-to-ceiling windows, and museum-quality displays. This unique banquet facility will enable Hoosier fans to gather for special events and to celebrate the past, present and future of IU Athletics.
In front of the entrance to the North End Zone, Glory Plaza features brick pavers that can be personalized with individual and company names, dates and special messages. The engraved bricks are a way to recognize and honor families, alumni and special IU memories. Each brick will be permanently displayed on the walkway of Glory Plaza. IU alumni and fans can also order commemorative replicas of their brick to keep for themselves or to give as gifts. The Hoosier Football program enjoys spacious new position and staff meeting rooms and a team auditorium, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Each position room provides players with the resources they need not just for position meetings, but also for individual film review at any time. Additionally, the North End Zone houses the offices for IU’s Athletics Administration.
