Named after the late, great football coach Elton J. Rynearson, Rynearson Stadium has been an athletic center for Eastern
Michigan University for decades. Each year, thousands of fans pour through the stadium’s gates and take in fantastic
sporting events. Now, you can get Rynearson Stadium tickets and enjoy those
events with them!
Elton J. Rynearson was one of Eastern Michigan University’s greatest football coaches, serving for 26 seasons, and
leading his teams to a final record of 114-58-15. In one of his best periods, from 1925 to 1930, his teams won 40 games,
tied two and lost four. The stadium was dedicated to him in October of 1969, costing $1,400,000 at the time of its construction.
Over time, Rynearson Stadium has changed a bit, always for the better. The field was originally natural grass, with StadiaTurf
being installed in 1991. In 1998, the field got another face lift when AstroTurf was installed. The seating capacity has
gone up to 30,200 with some standing room available, meaning there’s room for even late buyers of Rynearson
