Ratliff Stadium is a stadium in Odessa, Texas. It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field for the city's two public high schools, Odessa and Permian High Schools.

The stadium opened in 1982 and holds 19,302 people. It was the stadium used during filming of most of the football action in the 2004 movie Friday Night Lights, an adaptation of a 1990 book about Permian's 1988 football season.

In 2015 Ratliff Stadium will serve as the home game venue for the newly established University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB) Football team.[1]

Other events held at Ratliff Stadium have included track and field, soccer, marching band contests, and graduation ceremonies.
