Brockport’s football, field hockey, women’s and men’s soccer and lacrosse teams all play on Bob Boozer Field at Eunice Kennedy Shriver Stadium for home athletic contests with both the women's and men's soccer teams also playing on the grass field of A. Huntley Parker Jr. Field.
With a seating for 10,000 fans, it is one of the largest on-campus Division III football facilities in the country. The Golden Eagles set a new school record in attendance on Sept. 20, 2014 during the Courage Bowl between Brockport and St. John Fisher in football.
It features a newly A-Turf playing field, a high-tech scoreboard with message center display capabilities, a newly installed speaker system, bleacher seating along both sidelines and a state-of-the art press box.
The stadium, formerly known as Special Olympics Stadium, was renamed during a special halftime ceremony during Brockport’s 2010 Homecoming contest against The College of New Jersey. It was rededicated in honor of Mrs. Kennedy Shriver, who was instrumental in creating the Special Olympics. Mrs. Kennedy Shriver was also influential in bringing the Fifth International Special Olympics Summer Games, which drew more than 3,500 athletes from across the country and the world, to Brockport for the competition, Aug. 8-13, 1979.
Repairs were made to the facility in September of 1998 after a wind-storm severely damaged the complex. During the mid-2000’s, Brockport’s football team qualified for the NCAA playoffs every year from 2000 to 2003, with the Golden Eagles cheering section playing a large factor in the home success!
