Memorial Stadium is a stadium in Mesquite, Texas. It was built in 1977 and is located on the campus of West Mesquite High School, next to Mesquite Tower. The field is primarily used for football, and all five High Schools in Mesquite share use of the field.

The stadium has a capacity of 20,000 people, making it one of the largest high school football stadiums in Texas. Due to its size and central location, the field is often used as a neutral-site for Texas High School Football playoff games. UIL Marching competitions are frequently hosted as well.
