Located on 32 acres just west of the downtown campus, Haymarket Park is a one-of-a-kind facility. Bowlin Stadium, the 2004 SportsTurf Managers Association Field of the Year, is part of the complex that was built for nearly $30 million in 2001.

Bowlin Stadium can accommodate up to 2,500 fans. It features 750 chairback seats with an up-close view of the action, as well as berm seating behind both dugouts and in the outfield and bleacher seating on the first base concourse.

A new videoboard was added during the 2012 season.

Nebraska has ranked in the top 10 nationally in attendance four times since Bowlin Stadium opened in 2002.
