DakotaDome

DakotaDome, home of USD football and other athletics

DakotaDome is a 10,000-seat multi-purpose stadium on N. Dakota Street in Vermillion, South Dakota. Opened in 1979 for a cost of $8.2 million, it is home to the University of South Dakota Coyotes for numerous athletic events, including football, men's and women's basketball, volleyball, men's and women's swimming and diving, and track. The DakotaDome is also the home site for NAIA school Briar Cliff University football team located 25 miles to the southeast in Sioux City. The DakotaDome hosts other events throughout the year, including the South Dakota high school football championships each November. In 2014 a proposal for a new basketball arena went through and construction began just south of the Dome. The new arena which seats 6,000, is expected to open up for the 2016-17 basketball season.

Formerly an air-supported structure, numerous roof collapses led to it being replaced by a $13.7 million steel roof in 2001.[2][3]
