Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), the State of Wisconsin’s largest school district servicing 80,000 kids, demolished the 90 year old South Stadium and constructed a new, modern facility in its place. The new stadium hosts schools across MPS and is the home field for Bay View, Bradley Tech and South Division high schools for football and soccer games, meeting growing demand for soccer space in the district. This is a catalytic project for Milwaukee and will serve as a beacon for the community for decades to come.
The new facility consists of consolidated team lockers, coaches and officials rooms, public toilet facilities and concessions in a single facility to serve both home and visitor spectators. A new multi-purpose synthetic turf field for high school level football and soccer was installed as well as aluminum bleacher and seating for 2,500 seats with ADA accessible seating pathway and ADA accessible press box with storage and film platform.
Storage for athletic equipment was incorporated and approximately 2,500 bricks were salvaged for reuse as a possible gateway/entrance monument. Construction cost approx. $9M
