Yager Stadium


In its 26th season, Fred C. Yager Stadium has undergone an ambitious series of renovations over the last seven years that have reshaped the home of Miami University football. Since the renovations began with the installation of a FieldTurf playing surface in 2002, Miami has gone 19-13 at home over the past six seasons -- winning 10 straight games from 2003-04.

Completed in 1983, the stadium is named in honor of Fred C. Yager, a 1914 Miami graduate who generously supported the stadium project. A total of 28,230 fans jammed Yager Stadium for the Dedication Game against Western Michigan on Oct. 1, 1983, and that number stood as the benchmark prior to 1997.

On Oct. 2, 1999, a record-setting crowd of 30,087 witnessed Marshall defeat the RedHawks 35-14. That broke the former record of 29,027, set two years earlier in a 45-21 win over Marshall. In an eight-day span in 1997, with back-to-back games against the Herd and Cincinnati, Yager Stadium amassed 56,729 fans, the largest consecutive game total in Miami history. With the recent renovations and removal of all stands from the South endzone, Miami's capacity has been reduced to 24,286.

An interior office level features the offices for Miami's football and women's soccer programs, as well as the "Cradle of Coaches" room, where the head coach's office, a large reception area and displays of Miami memorabilia are located.
