Initial construction of the DakotaDome was completed in 1979, and the facility has served as the cornerstone of Coyote athletics ever since. It remains the home competition facility for Coyote football, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, and men’s and women’s indoor track. Coyote volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball competed inside the DakotaDome until the Sanford Coyote Sports Center opened in 2016.
“Our goal is to ensure the DakotaDome remains a cornerstone by transforming it into a championship-level facility befitting a highly competitive Division I athletics program,” said USD Director of Athletics David Herbster. “The purpose of this website is to inform our fans, students, alumni and community about the project and hopefully address any questions or concerns they may have.”
Construction on the DakotaDome renovation will begin in the middle of February.
