Farmers National Bank Field
GPS Address: 618 Fifth Ave. | Youngstown, OH 44502

Farmers National Bank Field, the home of the Youngstown State soccer program, played host to its first season of action in 2013. The YSU track and field program will also benefit from the complex being able to have an official outdoor home as well.

The Youngstown State soccer program has a place of its own for the first time since the program began in 1996. The Penguins previously played their home matches in Stambaugh Stadium and now are proud to call Farmers National Bank Field their home. It is one of the top soccer and track and field complexes in the Horizon League.

Farmers National Bank donated $500,000 to Youngstown State in December 2012 for use in constructing the facility and soccer complex will be named Farmers National Bank Field. The synthetic Sprinturf lush green field bares the Farmers National Bank logo in the northwest corner. At midfield is a red Youngstown State “Y”.
The field features bleacher seating for 200, a press box, lighting, scoreboard and sound system. It will play host to track and field events starting with the spring of 2014.

Various local high school soccer and track and field programs can use the facility as well as YSU intramurals. It is a facility the entire area can be proud of.

Just south of First National Bank Field is the new home of the Penguins’ softball program. The YSU Softball Complex is set to be completed in time for the start of the 2014 campaign. The Guins have played their home games off campus for more than 10 seasons and are anxious to return to YSU.
