Washington–Grizzly Stadium is an outdoor college football stadium in the western United States, located on the campus of the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana. Opened 34 years ago in 1986, it is home to the Montana Grizzlies, a member of the Big Sky Conference and a team in Division I FCS (formerly Division I-AA).

Its infilled SprinTurf playing field is twenty feet (6 m) below ground level at an elevation of 3,190 feet (970 m) above sea level and runs in the traditional north–south orientation.[3] The press box is above the west sideline and lights were added for the 2012 season.[4] It is the largest all-purpose stadium in the state of Montana.
