Stevens Stadium & Buck Shaw Field - Completed Fall 2015
The Soccer Stadium is getting a makeover! This project is underway and at this time the east side press box has been removed, and anyone that has had the delightfully unstable experience of being in that press box knows it was time! The temporary west side bleachers, used for the Earthquakes games, have been removed and the grading and compacting process has started in preparation for the new additions. The additions to the stadium will include a new bleacher structure, press box building, and restroom facilities on the west side of the field. A Plaza Wall is being constructed to enhance the entryway into the stadium.

The Schott Stadium decor was personalized this winter to help our broncos feel more at home.
