MPS will build a new facility to replace South Stadium that opened in 1923.  Throughout the decades the red brick structure located at 971 West Windlake has hosted football, soccer and track competitions for public and private schools throughout the area. Today's final events will feature a football match up between Bay View and South Division at 4:30 p.m. followed by Vincent vs. Bradley Tech. Ceremonies honoring the stadium's history will be held at halftime of each of the games.
