Vernon Newsom Stadium

3700 East Broad Mansfield,TX 76063


The Vernon Newsom Stadium is designed to bring the crowd closer and provide a more intimate setting.

The stadium is centered in the heart of the District and features a split, two-level press box and a spacious, mid-level concourse that provides a means of entrance from any of the four ticket booths. The spectator grandstands for both Home and Visitors are designed with a slight skew on both ends that give the facility a "bowl effect" for maximum viewing angles for each fan. Additionally, the grandstand seating structure is constructed with three different rise dimensions giving each spectator a closer, more intimate seat for viewing.

The playing field is situated in a North/South direction slightly angled to the west to take advantage of the prevailing winds and sun angles for participants and is surfaced with the latest, state-of-the-art artificial turf with fully inlaid yard lines and markings.
The grounds are modestly landscaped and controlled by a series of ornamental and chain link fences.

The office complex is approximately 10,000 square feet and also accommodates a large Community Center that is utilized by the district for meeting and special events. Both Home and Visitor sides have the use of two full-sized locker rooms that can be subdivided for large soccer tournaments as well as football events and have accommodating showers and dressing areas.

There's truly not a bad seat in the house!
