Griggs Field at James S. Malosky Stadium located on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth in Duluth, Minnesota is the home stadium, since 1966, of the UMD Bulldogs football team and of the UMD women's soccer since 1994. The facility was originally known as Griggs Field, after Richard L. Griggs, a philanthropist whose many business interests included a long time era as President and CEO of Northern National Bank/Duluth National Bank and was active in the founding of Jefferson Lines. He was also a regent for the University of Minnesota.[1] Its current name was adopted in 2008 to honor long time football coach Jim Malosky.[2]

In addition to housing the football, women's soccer and track teams, the 4,000-seat Griggs Field also hosts a number of high school football and track and field events throughout the year as well as UMD's intramural activities.
