The press box includes the Coach Bill Edwards president's suite, named after the College Football Hall of Fame inductee coach.[1] In 2008, the eight-lane track surrounding the field was named Coach Bill Sudeck Track.

The Case Western Reserve Spartans football team played its first home game in the new stadium on September 10, 2005, defeating the Denison Big Red 20-6.[2]

Renovation historyEdit

In 2014, the Wyant Field House opened, which included the 4500-square foot Steve Belichick Varsity Weight Room, gifted by Bill Belichick in honor of his father.[3]

In 2017, the field was resurfaced with FieldTurf Revolution 360 fiber and an EcoSense EPDM (ethylene propylene diene) fill.[4]
