Herb Parker Stadium - Home of Minot State Football
Herb Parker Stadium is the home of the Beaver Football team. Resting on the side of a hill on Minot's north side, the Stadium provides relief from the weather as well as a beautiful view of the city of Minot for all events.
The stadium is named after former Minot State football coach, basketball coach and athletic director, Herbert M. Parker. Parker coached MISU football to 175 wins over 13 seasons (1947-1959). He also led the men's basketball program to a 1948 Conference Championship. Parker served as athletic director from 1947-1959, then again from 1974-1976.
Although "The Herb" has been home to the Beavers for decades, the stadium has taken on a new look over the last few years due to continuous renovations and improvements.
In 2010, the natural grass playing surface was replaced by FieldTurf to better accommodate the needs of the university and community. Fieldturf is a synthetic playing surface used by over 7,000 athletic facilities across the United States, including 20 NFL teams and three Major League Soccer teams.
The improvements have not stopped at the playing surface, as new stadium seating, a new scoreboard and new press box have either been installed or in the works for the near future for Herb Parker Stadium.
