Beirne Stadium Complex
The centerpiece of Bryant University's outstanding athletic facilities, Beirne Stadium was completed in 1999 to coincide with the varsity debut of Bryant football. Formally named Bulldog Stadium, the stadium was renamed Beirne Stadium on September 24, 2016.
With a seating capacity of 4,400, Beirne Stadium utilizes a design that is usually reserved for larger stadiums, ensuring excellent sight lines and maximum comfort for spectators.
A 3,200-seat permanent bleacher comprises the backdrop for the home side of the field, while 1,200 additional seats are available on the visitor's side. Three hundred seats in the stadium are equipped with backs and arm rests.
The Bulldog football locker room is a modern, spacious facility designed to give Bryant players a comfortable and accommodating team room complete with high definition televisions and sound system.
Recent upgrades to the facility include a renovation of the Field Hockey locker room, which also serves as the football visiting team locker room, as well as the construction of new team locker rooms for men's and women's lacrosse and women's soccer.
The stadium complex includes the new state-of-the-art strength & conditioning center as well as an athletic training center, equipment storage, and public restrooms.
The Beirne Stadium state-of-the-art press box contains booths for home and visiting coaches as well as ample work space for game personnel and visiting media including visiting radio and television. High speed internet and WIFI are available to all working media as well as well as out of town score updates.
Beirne Stadium's playing surface was laser-graded and special turf was installed in time for the 1999 varsity football season.
In 2007, more than 5,000 people poured through the gates to cheer on the Bulldogs as they played host to West Chester in an NCAA first round playoff game.
Bulldog Stadium has also played host to various conference championships and is the home site of the annual Northern Rhode Island Special Olympics in May for the past 30 - plus years.
In addition to serving as the home of Bryant Football, Bulldog Stadium also plays host to the school's men's and women's lacrosse and men's and women's soccer teams and has hosted several Rhode Island's high school state championship games.
