Bob Ford Field at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium

The University at Albany’s $19 million multi-sport complex was completed in September 2013.

The stadium field turf is named in honor of Bob Ford, who built the program from the ground up, taking the Great Danes from a club team to an NCAA Division I FCS contender.

The state-of-the-art 8,500-seat facility includes a distinct press level with four luxury suites, print media area, and booths for radio, television, coaches, and replay, as well as 20 high-definition televisions distributed throughout the level.

The stadium also features a $1.1 million Daktronics scoreboard with a 39’ by 22’ high-definition video display and point-source sound system behind the south end zone.
