|Full name||Irish Field|
|Operator||Arizona State University|
|Tempe Normal Owls (NCAA)|
Irish Field served as the home to the Tempe Normal football team from 1927 to 1935 before being replaced by Goodwin Stadium in 1936.
Tempe Normal gained accreditation as a 4-year institute in 1925. It was quickly decided the football team would need a new larger home. In 1927 ground was broken on the new stadium. The stadium was named for Fred Irish who was the head coach of the team for its first 8 seasons. Irish Field was located where the current Memorial Union sits on campus. Stadium lighting was added to Irish Field in 1930, allowing the team to play night games.
