A well-rounded sports complex has both indoor and outdoor facilities. At Hoover Met Complex, we have multiple NCAA regulation-size fields that can accommodate even the largest of events. As you walk through the grounds, you will notice both the quality of each field and admire how well they are maintained. In today’s blog, we go on a tour of the various outdoor sports fields and learn what makes each of them great for your next outdoor event.
Hoover Met Stadium
Hoover Met Stadium is our largest outdoor facility with seating for more than 10,800 guests, not including the private tents, skyboxes, and pavilion area. One of the most popular events Hoover Met Stadium holds is the SEC Baseball Tournament. From this tournament alone, more than 120,000 fans visit our state-of-the-art complex. Not only is it just for outdoor sports, but it is also an event venue for concerts, community gatherings, and other competitions.

Along with Hoover Met Stadium, another group of outdoor sports fields is just for baseball and softball. The four artificial turf fields and one natural grass field meet all NCAA regulations, allowing them to host large events. They are all equipped with scoreboards and batting cages perfect for warming up. By having turf fields the maintenance remains low, increasing year-round play.
Baseball isn’t the only outdoor sport we accommodate! Hoover Met Complex offers 5 NCAA regulation multipurpose fields that can be transformed for soccer, football, and lacrosse. Each field is high-quality turf able to withstand the wears and tears that come with competitive sports. These fields can quickly change from sport-to-sport depending on reservations. You can even reserve fields for practices, games, or upcoming tournaments through our website!
