FHSU SOCCER STADIUM AT BICKLE-SCHMIDT SPORTS COMPLEX
Seating capacity: 500

The FHSU Soccer Stadium opened for play in the fall of 2011, the inaugural season of Fort Hays State men’s and women’s soccer. The Tigers’ home stadium is part of the Bickle-Schmidt Sports Complex which also features eight baseball / softball fields and eight football / soccer fields.
The stadium is a state of the art soccer-specific complex with a synthetic turf playing surface and lighting that meets NCAA regulations for holding night contests. Other features include a Daktronics scoreboard with LED lighting just beyond the south end of the playing field, bleachers seating 500-plus fans, and a two-level press box. The stadium also has both men’s and women’s locker rooms and a concessions area. This brand new facility sits on 120 acres of ground and is located just northwest of Gross Memorial Coliseum on the western edge of Hays at the intersection of Old Hwy 40 and the Hwy 183 by-pass.
