Finley Stadium and Citizens Bank Field has been the home of Campbellsville University football since the program was reinstated as a school-sponsored sport in 1987. It became the full-time home of men’s and women’s soccer in 2010.
The original football field was built by the players who played on it. Some of the early Fighting Tigers helped lay sod, cut from a farm off Kentucky Highway 61, as Campbellsville College built the program from the ground up in 1987-88. The original field had a crown in the center of the field for drainage purposes, known as “The Hump”. Tiger Field, as it was known at the beginning, played host to Fighting Tigers’ first varsity football game on Sept. 10, 1988 vs. Centre College.
In 1997, additional seating was added to Tiger Stadium at Tiger Field with the construction of a four-level press box in 1998. In 2006, the stadium was renamed Finley Stadium in honor for the football program’s first varsity head coach, Ron Finley. During the 1997-98 rennovation, the seating capacity grew to 3,000 seats. The press box provided a first floor concession stand and bathrooms, second floor storage, third floor President’s Suite and fourth floor press box, coaches boxes and video rooms.
