Mangelsdorf Field at the Anderson Outdoor Athletic Complex is set in a wooded area right on campus. Construction was completed in September 2002, with the addition of lights the field serves as a home for the Misericordia University football, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and track & field programs.
Known affectionately as “The Dorf,” the complex includes a six-lane synthetic track resurfaced in 2012 along with a new artificial turf field by FieldTurf, also new for 2012. FieldTurf is used by professional sports teams and top-flight collegiate programs in the United States and in venues around the world.
This track has an 8-lane straightaway, and also includes areas for steeplechase, long jump, high jump, triple jump, and pole vault.
There is a separate natural grass throwing area for hammer, javelin and shot-put.
Football 2012 inaugural season
The 2012 Inaugural Football season kicked off with the team playing their first home opener at Mangelsdorf Stadium. Mangelsdorf will now be home to the Misericordia Football team as well.
Our men's and women's lacrosse team, men's and women's soccer team, field hockey team, and newly added football team play their home games on the durable synthetic surface. Having stadium lights installed around the field has allowed for maximum usage, as teams can practice anytime of the day or night.
