Northern Minnesota's premier outdoor athletic venue, James S. Malosky Stadium has been the home of Bulldog football for the past 50 seasons, UMD women's soccer since its inception in 1994, and the Bulldog softball team since 2014.
And, talk about a home field advantage. In 253 lifetime appearances at Malosky Stadium heading into the 2016 season, the Bulldog football squad has posted a 195-54-4 overall football record for .773 winning percentage. Only five times has UMD ever failed to produce a .500 or above mark at the on-campus facility, which is named after legendary Bulldog football coach Jim Malosky and opened on Oct. 29, 1966. Women's soccer has likewise experienced plenty of success at Malosky Stadium, going 118-40-10 (.732) there while turning in a trio of perfect home records (8-0 in 2009, 7-0 in 1998 and 10-0 in 1995).
In 2010, a $6.5 million, four-level structure, which includes a concession area, spacious club room and press/broadcast facilities, was added to the grandstand. Additionally, 2013 saw a new $325,000 scoreboard, 48' x 33' in size, added to the north end zone and now contains a 12' x 22' LED videoscreen .In 2016 the turf was replaced at a cost of $600,000 and in 2017 a new $1.2 million eight lane 400 m track was installed. Fans can experience first class service in the Superior Beverages Club Lounge located on the third floor of the stadium.

Fitted with an outfield fence that stretches around the 50-yard line featuring windguards decorated with Bulldog Softball and the retired number 14 of UMD alum Mandy Matula, Malosky Stadium became the alternate home field of UMD softball in 2014. The Bulldogs play a handful of their early spring games at Malosky Stadium. In 4 seasons they have a 20-9 record at the stadium. Home plate sits just outside the scoreboard endzone, with the out-of-bounds line serving as the third base line and end zone line serving as the first base line.
In addition to housing the Bulldogs, the 4,500-seat Malosky Stadium also hosts a number of high school athletic events throughout the year as well as various UMD intramural and club sport activities.
