Tenth Street Stadium was a stadium in Bloomington, Indiana. Originally named Memorial Stadium, it was primarily used for college football, and was the home field of the Indiana University football team between 1925 and 1959, prior to the opening of the new Memorial Stadium. The stadium held 20,000 people and was built in 1925. The stadium replaced Jordan Field which had served as the home field for the program since 1887. The stadium was renamed Tenth Street Stadium in 1971. It was later used to host the Little 500 and was featured in the 1979 movie Breaking Away. The stadium was demolished in 1982 and the site it once stood on now serves as a green space and recreation fields in the center of campus known as The Arboretum.
