Kearly Stadium Project

Kearly Stadium Project

Michigan Tech is upgrading Sherman Field at Kearly Stadium in two phases. Phase I was completed in August 2018 and the construction on Phase II is currently underway.

Michigan Tech thanks Fred Guenther ('75), Todd Hamar ('83), Alex Kowalski ('01), and Clay Willman ('60) for their hard work and cornerstone gifts to support the vision of the football stadium project. Guenther, Hamar, Kowalski, and Willman are all Michigan Tech graduates who believe in the program and the university as a whole.

Phase I

Phase I included new bleacher seating, an accessible parking lot, and concrete flooring for the VIP Pavilion. It was completed in August 2018.

Phase II includes a new expanded press box with coaching boxes, additional bleachers, restrooms, and concessions. Construction for Phase II is currently underway.

Football Seating and Press Box Campaign

We are thrilled to announce the naming of our renovated football facility in honor of the Kearlys—both Ted and Tom—who have been instrumental in the success of our program for decades. Their legacy and love for Michigan Tech will live on at Kearly Stadium. With their hard work and leadership—and that of many others—Michigan Tech football is an established program with a bright future. Two NCAA playoff appearances. Two Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles. Thirteen NCAA All-American players. Attendance at Husky football games is increasing and the football program is growing. Thank you to all who have supported the football program and our campaign to improve our facilities. We have completed phase one of our stadium project. Our goal is to continue to enhance the Husky football game-day experience. Your continued support is needed to make Sherman Field at Kearly Stadium the finest NCAA Division II facility in the nation. The University and Athletics Department are deeply committed to completing these comprehensive improvements to this historic facility. We hope that the hundreds of Tech alumni who had memorable experiences playing football at Tech will share that enthusiasm.

Join us in this next phase to create an exceptional game-day atmosphere, giving our Huskies a true home-field advantage. With continued support from the University and backing from our loyal alumni and friends, we will complete this important campaign.
