Stoffer Family Stadium

Stoffer Family Stadium & Lemmons Family Field

Colcord Field

A combined $1.2 million lead gift from Brad and Katharine Stoffer and their Boedecker Foundation in 2009 provided the seed money for a project that would ultimately allow George Fox to bring football back after a 46-year hiatus from the sport. That project – Stoffer Family Stadium – now stands as a testament to the university's commitment to provide student-athletes the "most formative athletic experience in the country."

Groundbreaking for the complex – which includes the synthetic-turf Lemmons Family Field, grandstand seating for 1,200 and the Duke Athletic Center – took place in the spring of 2013. Work on the grounds was completed during the summer of 2014, when grandstands were erected, the field was installed and a state-of-the-art video board – arguably the most impressive of its kind in the Northwest Conference – was constructed. Lemmons Field was funded by a generous donation by John Lemmons, founder of Pacific Fibre Products, and Larry Lemmons, the company’s president.

The Bruins' football team makes its home in the 14,000-square-foot Duke Athletic Center, where 130 custom-made wooden lockers grace the team's locker room. The facility also includes a weight training room, coaches' offices, a classroom and a terrace that allows fans to catch the game from a bird's-eye view. The Duke building was made possible by a $2.5 million donation by philanthropists Marilyn and John Duke in 2011.

The stadium also serves as home to the university's track and field team. The new covered stands will be a big plus during the spring track season, and the artificial turf infield provides a clean look and an improved training surface that reduces impact and, in turn, injuries. The new stadium also opens the door for George Fox to host more meets – and higher-quality events. In fact, the new stadium will host the 2015 Northwest Conference championships.

Stoffer Family Stadium's permanent seating accommodates about 2,800 fans. Temporary seating during highly attended games boosts capacity to more than 3,300.
