Spring Run Stadium

Spring Run Stadium

In the fall of 2002, Penn State Altoona opened up its newest addition to the athletic facilities when Spring Run Stadium hosted its first soccer game. The field consists of an artificial turf playing surface surrounded by an eight-lane track. The unique blue surface on the track is the first of its kind in the Penn State system. The track is open to the campus and the community for recreational use when the campus teams are not using the facility. Along with the track and soccer accommodations, Spring Run Stadium also has an enclosed press box, a large scoreboard, lights for night games and activities, and bleachers.

Spring Run Stadium can seat roughly 2,000 spectators. The artificial turf playing surface installed in the summer of 2010 allows optimal conditions for competitive soccer. Aside from soccer matches, the first-ever Penn State Altoona all-sports Pep Rally was held at the stadium in October 2006 and the inaugural Club Lacrosse game in March 2012. Varsity sports, club sports, and intramural sports, also, share this truly beautiful athletic facility.

The press box at Spring Run Stadium allows staff and work-study students to provide public address announcing, music, in-game statistics, and scoreboard operation during all home soccer matches. The scoreboard at Spring Run Stadium is complete with a digital graphics board.
