Brady Street Stadium
Home football weekends for St. Ambrose University are more than just a
Saturday afternoon football game.
Fighting Bees fans from across the Midwest come to the heart of Davenport for
an entire weekend of activities in the Quad Cities.
St. Ambrose home games are played in historic Brady Street Stadium. This
10,000 seat stadium is one of the finest small college settings in the country.
An extensive renovation of Brady Street Stadium was completed in July 2008.
Sports Turf was installed as the new playing surface and a new scoreboard
featuring state-of-the-art audio and video sits in the north end zone.
Brady Street Stadium has been the home for St. Ambrose football games since
the late 1980s.
The Ambrose Dome
"The Ambrose Dome," which opened in August 2005, is a state-of-the-art,
67,000-square-foot, 75-foot-high, multi-tiered dome. This sports complex serves
as the indoor practice facility for the St. Ambrose football program. Purchased
by St. Ambrose University in the spring of 2011, the Ambrose Dome is heavily
utilized by the SAU Athletic Department.
The St. Ambrose Locker Room is located in Lee Lohman Arena, next to Timmerman
Field. Timmerman Field serves as the main practice field for the
football program. The St. Ambrose football players spend a great deal of time in
the locker room. Each player has their own individual oak wood locker, equipped
with its own individual foot locker, name plate, and overhead storage space. In addition to
the lockers, there is a centrally located 42" flat-screen HDTV with cable
television and a large stereo system for our players enjoyment. The locker room
was completed and opened in 2006.
In the competitive world of college football, the off-field preparation of
the student-athlete is an important aspect in building a successful program on
the field. At St. Ambrose University, the football players are fortunate to
train in a state-of-the-art facility.
Located just north of campus, the weight room is a premier strength and speed
facility. Here at St. Ambrose, we believe that a student-athlete's performance
in the weight room will improve their performance, as well as reduce the risk of
injury. Coach Magistrelli's philosophy is to make strength and speed development
a year-round job for the St. Ambrose football program.
Here at St. Ambrose, football players train with the best equipment
available. There are eight Olympic platforms, eight power racks, and over 20,000
pounds of free weights. There are several pieces of cardio equipment, four television
sets, and a classroom. The weight room has its own separate locker room with
individual lockers and showers.
The football program moved into the new weight room in January of 2009.
