Laird Stadium seats 7,500 for football and outdoor track and field meets. The stadium is one of the largest in Division III. The renovation of Laird Stadium's lower level was completed in 2012 and became a top project for the College following damage from the Cannon River’s raging flood waters during the fall of 2010.

Circling the football field in front of the stadium is an eight-lane, 400-meter all-weather track and field facility, complete with steeplechase water jump. Laird Stadium has been the site for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships three times.
