The Gold in the Maroon and Gold of Liberty will take on a special meaning this upcoming season as the Leopards will celebrate their 50th Golden Anniversary of playing at the current location behind the high school.
Dedicated on September 18, 1970, with a 27-18 victory over West Middlesex (PA) to open what at the time was known as the Athletic Field.
Considered one of the most scenic venues in the Mahoning Valley with the abundance of trees surrounding the stadiums' perimeter, Leopard Stadium underwent major renovations in the summer of 1998 as new home and away bleachers were erected along with the current press box.
Ahead of its 50th anniversary, the 3,000-plus seat Leopard Stadium underwent some recent renovations including an upgraded sound system during the 2017 season and the addition of field turf, and upgraded LED lights for the 2019 season.
The upgrades to Leopard Stadium will also extended to renovations to the Varsity House, known around Liberty as the “Block House”, a new scoreboard planned for the 2020 season, along with plans for a bandshell and resurfaced track in the near future.
