The recently completed Newark Schools Stadium is reborn as a tribute to
its proud and historic past. The design of the new facade pays homage to
the original iconic arched columns. A new clock tower/ticket window
symbolizes Newark's past while embracing the future. New, multi-purpose

track and field events as well as football, soccer and softball. Seating
for 5,600 spectators is provided along with amenities such as concession
