Lindenwood Stadium is a sport stadium in Belleville, Illinois. The facility is primarily used by the Lindenwood University-Belleville athletic teams.

The turf is not the normal selection of green, but is instead alternating red and gray. It has been called "The nation’s most original (hideous) football field."[1] As of the 2012 season, Lindenwood is only one of four programs to have the field color other than the traditional green[2] and the only NAIA school to do so.[3] The first college football game played at the stadium was a 43–37 victory over the Avila Eagles on September 1, 2012.[4]

The stadium is also used for local high school sporting events and other community events.
