AirHogs Stadium is a stadium in Grand Prairie, Texas, for the American Association's Texas AirHogs. It is primarily used for baseball. It has a capacity of 5,445 people for baseball games and opened in May 2008.[1] In addition to baseball, it plays host to various other concerts and events throughout the year. For a period of time, it was known as QuikTrip Park due to the sponsorship by the convenience store chain. In 2015, the city of Grand Prairie paid off the debt to build the stadium.

Usage[edit]

Texas AirHogs[edit]

The park was built for the Texas AirHogs of the American Association in 2007. They began play (as the Grand Prairie AirHogs) in May 2008 and finished their inaugural season with a final record of 56-40, also winning the Southern Division title before falling to the Sioux Falls Canaries in the finals. A few years later, they would win the 2011 American Association championship by winning a decisive game 5 at QuikTrip Park.

Dallas Desire[edit]

The Dallas Desire were one of two teams that were introduced to the women's Lingerie Football League (now Legends Football League) in 2004. They played two home games of their 2009 season in Grand Prairie. The team then moved to the Cotton Bowl for the 2010 season.

American Association All-Star Game[edit]

The Grand Prairie AirHogs hosted the 2009 American Association All-Star Game at their home field on July 21, 2009.

Texas United[edit]

In 2017, new Premier Development League (PDL) soccer team Texas United announced that they would play their inaugural season at Airhogs Stadium.[2]
