As we enter the 2015 football season, please note that Ron Roberts Field at the Banta Bowl remains under construction. While the facility is ready for play, not all amenties are open for fans so special procedures are in place until further notice.

All fans must enter through the visitors gate on the east side of the stadium (the side opposite the press box). Please walk down along the north side of the visitors stands and make your way along the north boundary of the field to reach the home stands. No entry will be permitted through the main gate since construction is still taking place in that area. The west gate is for entry and exit of the teams only.

Parking is available in the Mead Pool lot on John Street and along Banta Court. Portable bathroom facilities are located on the east side of the stadium and just beyond the north end zone.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we work through the completion of the facility.
