MTSU - Floyd Stadium



Officially named Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium/Horace Jones Field in 1968, Floyd Stadium is the home of the MTSU Blue Raider football team. Set on the northwest end of campus, Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium has undergone a multimillion dollar renovation over the past few years to make it one of the premier facilities in the region and Conference USA. During the summer of 2014, a new synthetic surface was installed to replace the turf that was installed in 2006.

On August 24, 1995, the University announced plans for a $25 million renovation, which was approved by the State Building Commission.
