Originally named Tiger Stadium, its construction was completed in 1939 through the Works Progress Administration program. Besides being the regular season home of the Massillon Tiger Football team, the stadium hosts numerous OHSAA sanctioned football playoff games and three divisional championship games. This is possible due to the use of field turf as a playing surface. The stadium also hosts the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame drum and bugle corps competition.

Paul Brown Tiger Stadium is listed as a historical site of significance by the State of Ohio.

Paul L. David Athletic Center

The Paul L. David Athletic Training Center located next to Paul Brown Tiger Stadium was built in 2008 by local philanthropist Jeff David in honor of his late father as part of what was known as the D.R.E.A.M. project. The 3 million dollar, 80,000 square foot building is the largest indoor football practice facility in the state of Ohio, 20,000-square-feet larger than the facility used by the NFL's Cleveland Browns. It is also one of the few indoor practice facilities for a high school football team in the nation.
