Justin F. Coressel Stadium is home to the Defiance College football team as well as the Yellow Jacket men’s and women’s outdoor track & field programs. The stadium can sit up to 4,000 fans and is named in honor of longtime DC friend, supporter and trustee Justin F. Coressel.
Coressel stadium was completed in 1994 and contains locker rooms, concession stand, and a full working press box with internet connection and web casting capabilities. A full athletic training room is also located within the complex, along with a team meeting facility, perfect for reviewing game film with full-color projectors for diagramming offensive and defensive strategy.
In addition, an eight lane all-weather track surrounds the playing field. Recently, Coressel Stadium underwent an overhaul to install field turf to replace its original natural grass surface.
