Kettering University's Atwood Stadium
Kettering University's Atwood Stadium is an 11,000-seat stadium. It's located in the historic Carriage Town district area of downtown Flint, Michigan. The University received ownership of the stadium in 2013. In 2015, Kettering University oversaw $2 million in renovations to the restrooms, press box, concourse, exterior and playing field. The new FieldTurf surface has permanent lines for regulation high school football, soccer and lacrosse.
Kettering University's intramural and recreational sports programs use the field. Since 2019, the Flint City Bucks soccer team and Powers Catholic High School's football, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls lacrosse and marching band programs share the stadium as their home field.
The annual Vehicle City Gridiron Classic also opens the high school football season at Kettering University's Atwood Stadium, with six to eight teams competing each season.
The Flint Institute of Music hosts an annual Independence Day concert in the stadium, which is coordinated with Flint's fireworks display that is launched from the Chevy Commons park located to the south, immediately across the Flint River from the stadium.
The Atwood Stadium Races, formerly the Tuuri, is a set of road races - kid's dash, 5K and 10K, that begin and end at the stadium and is hosted by the Crim Fitness Foundation in partnership with Kettering University. The races are typically held on the fourth Saturday in July. It is an official Crim Training Program voucher race and is known as a training race for the Crim. Racers can choose to run the "duo", both races.
