Description:
Johnny Unitas Stadium at Minnegan Field is a multi-purpose, football and lacrosse stadium in Towson, Maryland.

History

The stadium was completely renovated in 2002 to accommodate a Division I team, and now seats 11,000. Towson University hosts its home football and Lacrosse games at the stadium. The stadium is named for the Baltimore Colts' Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas, who had taken a job trying to find a corporate sponsor for the stadium with Towson University weeks before his death in 2002. In fact, Unitas threw his last public pass at the re-opening of the facility (as Towson Stadium) just a few days before his death. His widow, Sandy, felt it appropriate to honor him by having the stadium named for him instead, with fund-raising in his name taking the place of the money that a corporate naming would have supplied.

Minnegan Field, named after long-time faculty member, athletic director and coach Donald “Doc” Minnegan, is a FieldTurf artificial playing surface.

In 2008, the Unitas Stadium scoreboard was replaced with a 16:9 full video scoreboard. The new scoreboard stands where the previous scoreboard was placed. The old incandescent light scoreboard was placed at the opposite end of the field serving as an auxiliary scoreboard.

Tenants

It is the home field for the Towson Football, Men’s & Women’s Lacrosse, and the Women’s Track and Field team. The annual Fall Pep Rally is held at the stadium.
