Centennial Bank Stadium
Centennial Bank Stadium is the home of Arkansas State University’s football Red Wolves. Originally, a 16,000 seat facility, the structure has undergone some changes over the years. When ASU declared Division I-A status in 1991, additional seating was added to meet capacity requirements. Capacity expanded to seat 30,708.
Centennial Bank Stadium has a four level press area that includes the press box and two donor levels: Platinum and Gold. The area also includes a photo deck complete with and area for filming, Visiting Team AD Suite and coaches booths for both teams.
In 2002, players and coaches moved into a new three-story complex which features office space for coaches, dressing rooms, meeting rooms, and player lounges. These rooms are also utilized as suites for use during games, academic study areas, conference rooms, alumni functions, booster meetings, recruiting, and other gatherings. The structure complements the million-dollar video/scoreboard constructed in 2001 and located in the South end zone. The former football complex now houses the Performance Enhancement Center comprised of the Athletic Training Center, Strength and Conditioning Center, Student-Athletic Academic Success Center, Compliance, and some sports offices. A computer lab open to all ASU students is also located in the Performance Enhancement Center.
For any university to be successful in football, a solid strength and conditioning program is a must. At ASU, this program is built, not on just improvement in the weight room, but on solidly improving each athlete’s overall fitness and increasing each athlete’s overall athletic ability.
The major goal of the ASU program is to keep the athletes healthy and prepared for competition by reducing their susceptibility to injury or illness.
Through the hard work and generosity of several individuals and organizations--the weight room at ASU Stadium was transformed into "Red Wolf Iron Works" in 1996.
