Manning Field in Lynn has been an integral part of the sporting landscape in the region for over 70 years. Opened in 1938 as Manning Bowl, the stadium has hosted a myriad of events including high school, college and professional sports, concerts and fairs. The Bowl has even been host to two Presidential memorials, for Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.
The original Manning has seen many local legends grace its field; from the legendary Harry Agganis to Mark Bavaro to the rock band Aerosmith. Even Ray Charles has played there. Manning isn’t a stranger to professional soccer either. It was part of the first attempt to bring a professional soccer league to the U.S., hosting an exhibition match between Ireland’s Shamrock Rovers and the Detroit Cougars in front of 7,300 fans in 1966.
The Manning Field of today is a reconstructed, sparkling, state-of-the-art stadium in the Agganis Sports Complex serving multiple sports, including baseball and softball on an adjoining baseball diamond, Fraser Field. It boasts top of the line facilities for players, media and spectators alike. Mass United is proud to continue the fine tradition started in 1938 and call Manning Field and the City of Lynn its home.
