Paul Brown Tiger Stadium
is a stadium
in Massillon, Ohio
. It is primarily used for American football
, and is the home field of the Massillon Washington High School
. The stadium holds 19,000 people when extra seating is brought in. Without additional seating, the stadium holds 16,600. It is named after former Tiger and famous football head coach, Paul Brown
. Its construction was completed in 1939 through the Works Progress Administration
program. Besides being the regular season home of the Massillon Tiger Football team, the stadium hosts numerous OHSAA
sanctioned football playoff games and three divisional championship games. This is possible due to the use of field turf as a playing surface. The stadium also hosts the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame
drum and bugle corps competition. As a lasting tribute, it is listed as a historical site of significance by the state of Ohio.
As a part of the "D.R.E.A.M." project an indoor training facility and 2-story locker-room facility are scheduled to be built as part of the stadium complex. In 2008 the indoor training facility was completed and contains a complete football field in the facility. Also it has 10 bathrooms and can hold up to 7,000 people in the building.
