Glenn L. Martin Stadium (1939—2014)

The idea of building an outdoor stadium on campus was discussed for many years. Finally, in 1939 the National Youth administration, a component of the Works Progress Administration during the Roosevelt years, began construction. The cost of the project was about $20,000 and the structure was designed to seat around 2,000. The facility was complete and ready for competition in the fall of 1940, when it was dedicated in honor of aviation pioneer and Kansas Wesleyan alumnus Glenn L. Martin. The stadium hosted Coyote football and soccer competition thru 2006. In 2014, the stadium was demolished to make room for the new Graves Family Sports Complex.
