Holding 10,000 people, it is one the region's finest football and track facilities. Field turf was installed to replace the natural grass after a renovation project in 2003. The stadium is conveniently located near the Sioux Falls Convention Center and the Sioux Falls Arena and is wonderful for all types of sporting and entertainment events.
Sioux Falls public schools play football at the stadium. Howard Wood Field is host to the President's Bowl football games. The President's Bowl serves as a fundraiser for extra curricular activities for the Sioux Falls, SD public High Schools. Howard Wood Field also serves as host for the Bob Burns Dakota Bowl, an annual fundraiser for O'Gorman High School, which is a Catholic school in Sioux Falls.

The field has recently gone through a major renovation of the seating & press box.
