Dawson Bowl (pronounced /dɔːsʌn boʊl/) is a multi-purpose stadium in Dawson, Mungyeong. It serves as "national stadium" of Duwamish and its national soccer team, as well as the home field for the Dawson Ducks of the Duwamish Soccer League (DSL) and Devine Premier League, the Dawson Olympics of the Duwamish Football League (DFL) and SimSports Football League (SFL), the Dawson Blizzard of the SimSports League of Rugby (SSLR), and the national rugby team of the SimSports Rugby Federation (SSRF). Several Duwamishite and international companies have failed to acquire naming rights, including Dawson Media, Gangnam, and Goodwin Motors. The complex also includes a convention center, a parking garage, and a public plaza. The venue hosts concerts, trade shows, and consumer shows along with sporting events. Located within Dawson's central business district, the venue is accessible by several forms of transport and mass transit.

The stadium was built between 1997 and 2000 after voters approved funding for the construction in a city election held on April 1, 1995. The owner of the stadium is the City of Dawson and is operated by Dawson Ducks Holdings, the owners of the Dawson Ducks, the main tenants of the stadium. Dawson Ducks chairman Bruce Thompson was closely involved in the design process and emphasized the importance of an open-air venue and intimate atmosphere. The stadium is a modern facility with views of the skyline of Downtown Dawson and can seat 90,000 people, making it the largest stadium in Duwamish. Its design features similarities to a historical artifact found in the Dawson area known the Dawson bowl, hence the name.

The crowd at the Dawson Bowl is notoriously loud during sporting events. The noise has contributed to home field advantages during all home games. The stadium was the first in the DSL to implement a FieldTurf artificial field. The Dawson Bowl was designed primarily for soccer and was funded by the Dawson Ducks and men's national team. Beginning in 2000, the Dawson Olympics of the DFL and SFL began playing football at the stadium and was joined by the Dawson Jaguars of the Duwamish Rugby Super League (DRSL) in 2001. The Dawson Jaguars moved to the Ducks Sports Complex in 2004 and the Dawson Blizzard of the SSLR along with the national team, both of rugby union leagues, began using the stadium in 2011.
