“home of Boilermaker Football”

Nestled on the northern edge of the Purdue University campus, Ross-Ade Stadium is the home of Boilermaker Football.From 2001 to 2003, Ross-Ade underwent a $70 million renovation that has made it one of the most attractive and fan-friendly facilities in all of college football. A unique alignment of conditions - blistering heat and an aging irrigation system - resulted in the playing surface literally coming up in pieces in the fall of 2005. At the conclusion of the season, a team of experts led by athletics director Morgan J. Burke and former head coach Joe Tiller set out to chart a long-term solution for the field. Although typically thought of as a turf better suited to well south of the Mason-Dixon Line, the Purdue turf team scouted sites in Maryland and Virginia and came away convinced a cold-tolerant strain of Bermuda grass was the best permanent fix. Sod was laid in June of 2006, and Ross-Ade became the first Big Ten stadium with a Bermuda surface.
