Memorial Stadium's entrance was originally intended to serve as a memorial to Western North Carolina's war veterans but the memorial was never entirely completed. Recently plans have been set afoot to complete the memorial. As part of a large scale renovation of the facility which included the installation of a new artificial turf playing surface, there are plans to move a World War II memorial onto the site.
Memorial Stadium is currently home to the Asheville Grizzlies - a semi-pro football team in the Central Carolina Football League - and Asheville City Soccer Club, who compete in the National Premier Soccer League.
