Vermillion, South Dakota
The DakotaDome is a 10,000-seat multi-purpose indoor stadium at the University of South
Dakota in Vermillion. Opened in 1979 for a cost of $8.2 million, it is home to the University
of South Dakota Coyotes for numerous athletic events, including football, men’s and women’s
swimming and diving, and track.
As one of the first (and now oldest) indoor football stadiums in the nation, the DakotaDome
is due for upgrades. Phase one will add new seating and concourses as well as new football
team facilities. The master plan will include outdoor practice facility, new front entry, team
store, premium seating, update branding, USD Hall of Fame and upgrades to all team spaces.
