Roos Field

Home to the Eastern Washington Eagle football team, the stadium has 8,700 permanent seats and has the ability to accommodate larger events with 12,000. In 2010, the stadium switched over to red turf, just the second football program to have a non-green playing surface.  Michael Roos, All-Pro NFL tackle and former Eastern Washington football player, was a major donor of the red turf project, and as such, the University honored him by naming the football stadium Roos Field.
