Minersville Park was an American football stadium in Minersville, Pennsylvania, near Pottsville. It is most notable as the home field for the Pottsville Maroons football team from 1920 to 1928, including during their run in the National Football League from 1925 to 1928. It was a high school stadium, and had a capacity of only 5,000, relatively low for other NFL stadiums at the time.[2][3] When the Maroons moved to Boston as the 1929 (only) Bulldogs, they played two games in greter Pottsville: October 27 at Minersville Park (v. Buffalo Bisons) and October 29 at Mitchell Field (v. Newark Tornadoes).[4]
