Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium - {CATEGORY}

Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium is an outdoor football stadium in Jackson, Mississippi, USA. A state-owned facility, Veterans Memorial Stadium is the home field of the Jackson State University Tigers; it also plays host to the Mississippi High School Activities Association state championship football games every fall and other special events, including several NFL exhibition games. The stadium played host to a concert by Widespread Panic, R. L. Burnside and the Kudzu Kings on June 29, 2001. The stadium hosted an NFL preseason game between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts on August 26, 2006, in which the Colts won 27-14. After initially being built in 1941 with stands on both sides of the field, the northwest corner was bowled in 1980 to increase the seating capacity to its current size (about 62,000); until the recent expansion of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Veterans Stadium was the largest sports facility in Mississippi. Historically, Veterans Memorial Stadium was the site of many important college football games in Mississippi history, as Ole Miss, Mississippi State University and University of Southern Mississippi regularly played in the stadium (while maintaining home fields in Oxford, Starkville and Hattiesburg respectively), most famously in the annual Egg Bowl contests between Ole Miss and Mississippi State until the early 1990s. The University of Southern Mississippi made regular appearances as well, playing both UM and MSU as well as games against such schools as Texas A&M. The stadium continues to host the annual Capital City Classic between Jackson State and Alcorn State University, both of the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The stadium has also been home to numerous concerts, most notable being New Kids on the Block at the height of their fame.
