Mainland High School Football

Municipal Stadium, a 9,601-seat multi-purpose stadium in Daytona Beach, Florida, is home to the Bethune-Cookman University Wildcat football team. It is also used to host home games for the Mainland High School and Seabreeze High School football teams. The stadium is also known as Larry Kelly Field,[4] a name honoring former Daytona Beach Mayor Lawrence J. Kelly. The facility was built in 1988.

Until the end of the 2009 Bike Week season, the stadium hosted the AMA Flat Track motorcycle championships during Daytona Beach Bike Week. When the city took the track down as part of changes to the stadium, those races moved to a new dirt track at Daytona International Speedway.[5]

In 2008 and 2009 the stadium was the location of the Florida Football Alliance annual "Alliance Bowl" season championship game. It was held in Jacksonville for the 2010 season while Municipal Stadium underwent surface replacement. The Alliance Bowl is scheduled to return in 2011.

From 2014 to 2016, the stadium hosts the NAIA National Championship game. In 2014, Southern Oregon claimed the title with a 55-31 win over Marian.
