Foreman Field (S4254)


Product Description



Home of the Old Dominion Univesity Monarchs

Originally intended as the home of the Norfolk Division football program, it found new life as the home to other college and community sports programs when football was originally dropped in 1941. Built in 1936, with state and federal funds provided during the Great Depression, Foreman Field has undergone a $24.8 million dollar renovation over the last year with the help of SB Ballard Construction Company and Clark Nexsen Architecture and Engineering.  The stadium has been named SB Ballard Stadium at Foreman Field in honor of Stephen and B.J. Ballard and SB Construction.

Foreman Field hosted the annual Oyster Bowl game from 1946 to 1995, featuring major college football teams. Syracuse defeated Navy there in 1959 on its way to winning the national championship. Future NFL stars Fran Tarkenton, Roger Staubach, and Don Meredith played in Oyster Bowl games. It was also the home of the semi-pro Norfolk Neptunes in the 1960s and '70s, and the Washington Redskins played several pre-season games there in the 1960s.
