Following the 2001 season, Theunissen Stadium replaced Central Michigan's old Theunissen Stadium, home to the program since 1948. The old facility's name, changed from Alumni Field in 1986, was kept for the new Bill Theunissen Stadium. The venue's first game came on March 29, 2002, against Ohio. It was formally dedicated during an April 27, 2002, doubleheader against Northern Illinois.
Features of the facility include 400 chairbacked seats, a press box, message board, electronic scoreboard, outdoor practice area, and the Keilitz Clubhouse. In 2010, fencing was added to the practice facility adjacent to the stadium.
