The stadium received new synthetic turf, bench areas, landscaping and other improvements, including upgrades to the entrance area and scoreboard, in 2008. With this upgrade the new seating capacity is now at 13,500, making it the largest stadium in Division III.
In 2008, a record crowd of 11,028 was recorded for a game. That mark was shattered on October 9, 2010 when the Warhawks defeated the University of Wisconsin-Stout 30-7 in front of a crowd of 12,189 fans. That was not only a Perkins Stadium record but also a Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) record.
