Braly Municipal Stadium is recognized across the nation as one of the finest football facilities on the college-division level. The 14,215-seat stadium, which is the home field of the University of North Alabama, served as the site for numerous Division II playoff games before being chosen as the host stadium for the Division II National Championship game in 1986. This year marks the 26th consecutive year the Division II Football Championship Game has been played at Braly Municipal Stadium.
State of the art “ProGrass” artificial turf has been installed at the stadium along with a new scoreboard with LED lighting and play clocks. With the recent sound system upgrade, nearly $700,000 in renovations have occurred.
Braly Municipal Stadium features two dressing rooms, concession stands, restrooms and a three-level press box. The first level seats up to 50 sportswriters in the press room. A second level houses coaching staffs from each competing school, the public address announcer, the clock operator, the stadium manager and both home and visiting radio crews. The third floor is used by television and film crews. There are also two boxes used for hosting representatives from each team playing in the Division II Football Championship Game.
