For more than 100 years, Drake University and Des Moines Public Schools have partnered in ways big and small to serve the educational needs of Iowa’s capital city.

That relationship has grown even stronger with the announcement of a proposed plan to develop The DMPS Community Stadium at Drake University.

Unfortunately, factors such as the current high cost of materials have put recent construction bids for the stadium over budget. DMPS and Drake are committed to keeping this project on budget and will be working with the project design team to identify potential cost-savings and then rebid when the market is more favorable. (Visit the FAQ for additional information.)

The DMPS Community Stadium at Drake Stadium is now expected to begin hosting events in the Fall of 2023.

For more information on this exciting project, that will be used by all DMPS high and middle schools as well as provide a new home field for Drake soccer, please visit the pages in the menu to the right.
