Fortress Obetz is a 6,500 seat stadium on the site of the former Columbus Motor Speedway in Obetz, Ohio. In September 2016, Obetz purchased the Columbus Motor Speedway. Obetz has developed it into a community asset to host farmers’ markets, trade shows, sporting events, concerts, and other community activities. In its inaugural year (2017), it is set to be the new home of events such as the annual Obetz Zucchinifest and Fashion Meets Music Festival. This 50 acre, $15 million project is set to be completed in the summer of 2017. The stadium will also serve as the new home for the Ohio Machine of Major League Lacrosse. The stadium’s first event was held on May 6, 2017 for the first home game of the Machine. Fortress Obetz is also set to host the high school football match-up between Hamilton Township and Groveport Madison. Even though Obetz is home to these two school districts, they have not competed against each other in football in over 50 years. This event will take place on August 31, 2017.
