Great Bend High School Memorial Stadium is a sport stadium in Great Bend, Kansas. The facility is primarily used by the Great Bend High School football and track & field teams.[1] The stadium underwent renovation recently.[2] The stadium was also used as a temporary home by nearby Hoisington High School after much of Hoisington suffered severe damage from an F-4 tornado on April 21, 2001.

While certainly a quality facility in its own right, the field is largely unremarkable with one exception: The Wheat Bowl was played at this location - the only National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics endorsed Pre-Season bowl game. [3]
