Kibbie Dome

The William H. Kibbie-ASUI Activity Center (more commonly known as the Kibbie Dome) is a multi-purpose indoor athletic stadium in Moscow, Idaho, on the campus of the University of Idaho. It is the home of the Idaho Vandals of the Western Athletic Conference and is used for intercollegiate competition in four sports: football, basketball, tennis, and indoor track & field.

The Kibbie Dome opened as an outdoor concrete football stadium in 1971, built on the same site of the demolished wooden Neale Stadium (1937–68), seen in this early 1950s photo. In September 1975, after a barrel-arched roof and vertical end walls were added, the stadium became an enclosed facility.

With just 16,000 permanent seats, it is currently the smallest home stadium for college football in Division I FBS (formerly Division I-A). Since February 2001, the Kibbie Dome has been reconfigured for basketball games and is referred to as the Cowan Spectrum, seating 7,000. The elevation of the playing surface is 2,610 feet (800 m) above sea level.
