Alonzo Herndon Stadium, named for United States. It is the only two-sided stadium in the Atlanta University Center. It is one block over from the locally known Herndon Home, and sits above the MARTA East-West rail line.

During the 1996 Summer Olympics, Herndon Stadium hosted field hockey. It was also used as the stand-in for the demolished Fairfield Stadium in Huntington, West Virginia during filming of the 2006 movie We Are Marshall.

The stadium was the home to the former Georgia Mustangs and the former Atlanta Beat women's soccer club of the defunct WUSA league.

As of October 2015, the stadium is in an extreme state of disrepair, having been heavily damaged by looters.
