Ted Wright Stadium is a 8,500-seat multi-purpose stadium in Savannah, Georgia. The facility is located on the campus of Savannah State University and is named in honor of Theodore Wright who served as the Tiger's head football coach from 1947-1949.
The stadium is primarily used for American football and track and field. It is home to the Savannah State Tigers football and track and field teams, but occasionally hosts games and events by high schools in Chatham County.
The facility opened in 1967.
Through an agreement between the Georgia Board of Regents and Chatham County, Georgia, track and field improvements were made at the stadium between 1993 and 1995. A newly constructed 400-meter track and competitive field areas were a part of the "Olympic Legacy" package, a county program designed to provide recreational projects for county resident's use, and cost the Chatham County residents $1,062,980 in Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) funds.
