Carrington's Football Field

I need some insight on what the seating accommodations are like at Carrington's Football Field. Do they let the fans stand on the track or do you have to stand behind a fence? Will they have bleachers for the fans or do we just show up 2 hours before the game and claim the stands?

There is a track and a fence between the bleachers and field on both sides. You can stand along the fence except for in front of the bleachers on the home side.
We plan and God laughs.

when we played there it was very difficult to see....best option was standing on the top 3 rows of the bleachers on the visiting side....as stated, there is a track in between the fence and the field and they will not let you on the track for good reasons.....tough viewing for visitors though

I think that the visiting teams fans should just show up early and sit in the stands to make the home town fans know how sucky the accommodations are for visiting teams.

Yeah, the Carrington set up is kind of like Larimore's, so if you are familiar with their set up...

I completely disagree with the "for good reasons" part. If property taxes pay for the darn surface, taxpayers should have the option to stand on the surface for short periods of time on 4-6 days a year. No major damage is going to come from that. I commend Rugby for being at least one school with a newer surface that doesn't enforce something so silly.

For the record, I understand that obviously the away fans had nothing to do with the funds for the surface. I'm just stating that it's silly to not let home and away fans have the best possible view of a game. Standing 25-40 feet away is a joke.

Is see on Google maps if you just bring in a couple flat bed trailers and park them on the street you might be able to see the game. It's really sad that they can't have something decent at least for older people that love football but would rather not stand the entire game.

Carrington's accomendations for fans stink. Print a homemade media pass, laminate it, bring a camera, and stand on the sidelines. ;)

After hearing this I REALLY hope Larimore wins . PRFL has a great field and a good view for the fans. Well that's if PRFL wins. Pretty sure they will.

They had a decent amount of bleachers (for a regular game) Prfl had a huge crowd there, so I'm sure some had a tough time seeing the game. Especially since the track and field are about two feet higher than outside the fence. If they would have let PRFL bring a couple flatbed trailers to set up in between the bleachers, I think everyone would have had a pretty good view.

I stood on the Carrington did on 5 yd line area on the east side. The only issue I had was battling with the sun. It also appeared that Park River had more fans than Carrington did. They must've shut Park River and possibly Fordville and Lankin down yesterday lol. :lol:

Overall the field had a nice playing surface for a grass field. Hard too see my phone when I was posting scoring updates on Twitter due to the sun.

EVERYONE - call the super in Carrington and let him know all fans should be able to stand on the track during games. It would do no harm to the track, and make for a better experience for everyone. Dr Duchherer 701-652-3136

I'm curious. How many schools let you stand on the track during a FB game?

As a track coach, if its a good, quality track I wouldn't want anyone standing on it. An old track, that still is asphalt or in poor condition and is never used is a completely different story. I've never been to Carrington's track BUT from the view on Google Maps it looks to be a really good track. You don't want anything to happen to that track (other than the normal wear-and-tear from meets)...because those tracks are NOT cheap!

Run...You are correct in your assessment. I'm not track expert, but it was completely redone with an rubbery special track compound. I understand them for wanting to protect their investment as well.

If I was coaching I wouldn't want any fans standing directly behind my team with out any barrier. If that was my track I wouldn't want anybody on it that wasn't using it for track. With that being said, they should try and make better accommodations for the visiting fans. But if they can't, who cares it's called home field advantage.

By far, my least favorite field to be a visitor at. Had to stand in a pickup bed in order to even see...the announcer called every first down we had "ironic" (which doesn't even make sense) & the concession stand/bathrooms are all the way across the whole field (which they often aren't real close, but it is clearly not a visitor friendly field). Not sure how they could change things up if the track is a concern but some decent stands would be a start.

I dislike watching games where they allow vehicles to be parked next to the field on the sidelines. If the ball is on one side of the field I like to walk over to that side and watch. Vehicles next to field make walking and following the ball difficult to impossible.
