Soccer & Lacrosse Stadium

A NEW HOME FOR CHAMPIONSHIP SOCCER & LACROSSE PROGRAMS.


A new stadium will be a valuable addition for four of Carolina's most accomplished programs – Women's Soccer, Men's Soccer, Women's Lacrosse, and Men's Lacrosse.

The new stadium, to be built on the site of the old Fetzer Field, will provide the student-athletes and coaches of these programs with the facility needed to continue to pursue the championships for which they are known. Additionally, fans will enjoy a much-improved gameday experience with new seating and amenities.

A Facility That Serves

The new soccer and lacrosse stadium will provide a state-of-the-art home for the four programs, offering the operational space needed to compete at a championship level. The stadium will also bring fans closer to the field. The new stadium will feature:

  • Natural Grass Field – The new surface will accommodate a regulation field for all sports.
  • Program Facility – A new building will provide offices for both Soccer programs and Women's Lacrosse (Men's Lacrosse facilities are in the Loudermilk Center), team meeting rooms, locker rooms and coaches' offices.
  • Hall of Honor – The success of these programs will be celebrated in a new Hall of Honor in a fully-renovated McCaskill Center.
  • 4,200 individual chair back seats
  • New concessions and restrooms
  • New LED video scoreboard

In the Heart of Campus

The Soccer & Lacrosse Stadium will be built in the heart of central campus on the current footprint of Fetzer Field. The stadium will connect on its south end with the soon-to-be-constructed Football Practice Complex – providing a needed and attractive connection between the southeast side of campus and central campus).
