Delmar Stadium is a 12,000-seat stadium located at 1900 Mangum Road in Houston, Texas, United States. It is primarily used for American football games of Houston Independent School District schools. It is a part of the Delmar-Tusa Sports complex includes a 5,000-seat basketball/volleyball arena, Delmar Fieldhouse, a 6,000-seat rugby/football/soccer/track venue, Dyer Stadium, a 3,000-seat football/soccer field, Delmar Jr. Field, and a 1,500-seat baseball stadium, Absher Field.
Delmar Stadium was constructed in 1959 for just under $12.9 million. After severe flooding in May 2015 rendered the field unsuitable for play, artificial turf was installed later that year.
Delmar was also the primary home field of the Texas Southern University Tigers football team in 2008, following Hurricane Ike. Texas Southern played three games there during the 2008 season, including a rivalry game against Grambling State University on November 20.
The stadium was used as a filming site in the 1998 movie Rushmore, for the scene where Max is flying a kite and meets Margaret.
