Knights of Columbus Stadium was a football stadium located in East Orange, New Jersey, along Main Street. The stadium was used by the Orange Tornadoes of the National Football League in 1929. However the Tornadoes first moved into the stadium in 1926, when they were still called the Orange Athletic Club. The Tornadoes briefly moved to Newark, New Jersey in 1930. However after a disastrous season, the team moved back to Orange and played independently, at the stadium from 1931 until 1935. The team also played at Knights of Columbus Stadium in 1936, as a member of American Association.

The largest number for attendance in 1929, was 9,000 people on September 29. Meanwhile the low number for attendance was 1,500 people on November 17. Former-Orange player, Ernest Cuneo once wrote that the attendance mainly ran in the range between 2,500 to 3,000 fans at Knights of Columbus Field, which was even low for a Depression year.
