Coming Spring 2015

The Robert W. Plaster Center at Pittsburg State University is a state-of-the-art facility that will host a variety of university and community events.

The $13 million, 154,000-square-foot facility, to be completed in Spring 2015, will include a 100-yard turf field, an 11,000-square-foot modern strength facility, a 300-meter track and seating for up to 1,500. It will also include locker rooms for men’s and women’s track & field and football, offices and meeting rooms.

University, city and state officials broke ground on the Plaster Center during a special ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014.

2016 & 2018 Championships

Early in 2014, the NCAA selected Pittsburg State to host the 2016 and 2018 Men’s and Women’s Indoor Track Championships. The construction of the Plaster Center was key in the NCAA’s decision.
