Memorial Stadium is a stadium in Mesquite, Texas. It was completed in 1976 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.

Renovations[edit]

An $11 million dollar renovation is scheduled to start November 2014 and reach completion by August 2015 in time for the upcoming high school football season. Among the new improvements will be a new façade, expanded concession and restroom areas, a new press box and locker rooms as well as an enlarged concourse area and elevators.
