Concordia Stadium was built in 2000 to accommodate the addition of Cougar women's and men's soccer teams, along with the Cougar football program. Field Turf was installed to replace the old natural grass surface, and new bleachers and a press box were constructed.
The facility was officially dedicated on Sept. 1, 2001 as the Cougar football team hosted Trinity International University. Subsequent firsts for the Cougar soccer teams came on Sept. 4 for the women (University of St. Francis) and Sept. 5 for the men (Dominican University).
Concordia Stadium is the host for the annual Cougar Invitational, in which the CUC track and field team welcomes several of its local rivals for an exciting daylong competition. The stadium's track is used by many local high schools during the spring. The annual Lutheran Sports Association Track & Field Championships in May is also a highly anticipated annual event.
Outside soccer teams have also utilized the facility including the Chicago Red Stars' professional women's team. The Illinois High School Association has hosted playoff games on the CUC turf.
