Hamburg Area Stadium
Hamburg Area Stadium was completed in two phases. Phase I, completed in 2008, included the fieldhouse, home grandstand and press box. The late Senator James Rhoades sponsored a $150,000.00 DCED Grant to assist with the completion of Phase I. Phase II, completed in 2010, included the scoreboard, lights, entrance, track and field.
The welcoming entrance houses two ticket booths separated by a decorative iron gate and stone truss. The 115,000 square foot synthetic field surface is Field Turf Classic, and is lined for field hockey, soccer and football. The 8-lane International Broken Back synthetic track layout is Beynon BSS 300, and is open daily to alumni and residents of the Hamburg Area School District during daylight hours. Overall seating capacity is approximately 1,800 spectators, with significant standing room just outside the track. The wireless NEVCO 3250 scoreboard measuring 32' x 8', as well as attached 24' decorative truss and "HAWKS" logo, was donated to the District by the family of Taylor N. Seitzinger. The beautiful landscaping at the base of the scoreboard was donated by Nature's Accents. The lights are Musco Light Structure Green Technology which provides high efficiency, playability and safety, while operating less obtrusively to the neighboring community. The press box located atop the home grandstand can comfortably seat 20 people inside and another 16 coaches and event personnel on the roof.
