Second Renovation: 1999-2003 

Located along Auburn Avenue off Osler Drive, Unitas Stadium was built in 1977 as Minnegan Stadium, named after former Towson althetics coach Donald "Doc" Minnegan.

After renovations in 2002, the stadium now accomodates 11,000 spectators along with concession stands, a press box, field house, and promenade. The playing field is surrounded by a 440-yard outdoor track. The stadiums hosts games and meets for Towson football, lacrosse, soccer, and track and field along with other university events and pep rallies.

Today the field is named for former Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas, who attended its reopening in 2002 shortly before his death. The stadium was rededicated in his honor in October 2003, with the field being renamed "Minnegan Field."
