The stadium is the home of the Lehigh University Mountain Hawks footballteam who compete in the Patriot League at the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (or FCS) level, formerly known as I-AA. Located in a rural valley surrounded by wooded hills, its ample nearby parking makes tailgating before games very popular. Concession stands protected from the weather and large indoor restrooms are provided on both sides of the stadium. It also features a three-tiered press box and limited chair back seating, and locker rooms for home and visiting teams.
In 2011, Goodman Stadium hosted the 147th playing of the Lehigh-Lafayette rivalry. The Rivalry is both college football's most-played and longest uninterrupted series. Lehigh won the game 37-13, bringing the overall record to Lafayette 76 games to Lehigh 66.
The Goodman Campus has also been the preseason training camp location for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles for the past decade. Eagles' training camps often draw as many as 10,000 fans, ranking at the top of NFL training camp attendance. The Eagles' twice-daily practices are held from mid-July to mid-August.
