About Joe Aillet Stadium

Joe Aillet Stadium has been home to Louisiana Tech football for the past 40 years and the Lady Techster soccer team since 2005.

Bulldog football fans have watched legends such as Terry Bradshaw, Roger Carr, Fred Dean, Pat Tilley, Matt Dunigan, William Roaf, Troy Edwards and Tim Rattay all don the Tech Red and Blue.

Opened in 1968 at a capacity of 23,000, Joe Aillet Stadium -- which wasn't given its current name until Nov. 11, 1972, when it was dedicated in honor of the former Tech coaching legend -- has proven instrumental in some of the biggest wins in the program's 100-plus year history.

The facility was upgraded in 1985 when a luxury sky box was added to the press box and again in 1989, when an additional 7,600 seats were added, increasing the seating capacity to 30,600.


In the summer of 2006 Joe Aillet Stadium received a new surface as Fieldturf Mono -- which is considered the top of the line artificial turf -- was installed by FieldTurf Tarkett. A totally new lighting system was also installed that same summer as the top-of-the-line television quality lights were installed, replacing the old system.

Prior to the start of the 2009 season, LA Tech installed a $2 million high definition video board and new sound system. The 1,485 square foot video display is the largest in the Western Athletic Conference.
