Dedicated during Homecoming in October 21, 2000, the stadium seats 2,500 and enhances the west side of the campus. The brick and wrought iron motif extends from the stadium to encompass all the outdoor athletic facilities. Jerry and Joy Apple’s generosity allowed the project to reach its completion.
When the Austin College ‘Roo football program is in action in Apple Stadium, fun and memorable tailgating moments are happening in Larry Kramer Outback, located just beyond the south end of the field. At Homecoming 2014, the area was named in memory of legendary coach Larry Kramer, head football coach at Austin College from 1973 to 1982 who guided the ‘Roos to the 1981 NAIA National Championship.
