Alumni Stadium - Men's & Women's Soccer

Alumni Field

A new era in Notre Dame soccer began in 2009, when the Fighting Irish men's and women's soccer teams took the pitch for the first time at the brand-new Alumni Stadium.

Located just east of Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center and approximately 500 yards west of its predecessor, the new stadium sits side-by-side with Notre Dame's new lacrosse facility, Arlotta Stadium, which made its debut in the spring of 2010 (the soccer facility is situated further west, the lacrosse stadium further east).

The stadium also offers upgraded and expanded restroom and concession areas, elevator access and handicapped reserved seating on the main concourse level.

What's more, Alumni Stadium features an LED scoreboard (installed by industry leader Daktronics), enhanced lighting structures and top-of-the-line sod for the pitch cultivated in Fort Morgan, Colo., at Graff's Turf Farms (which also provided the turf for some of the nation's finest sports facilities including Notre Dame Stadium, Wrigley Field, Busch Stadium and two of the newest MLS grounds - Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo., outside Denver, and Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City).

Media members enjoy a spacious new climate-controlled press box, which includes power and high-speed internet portals at every seat (along with wireless internet capability), three individually-wired broadcast booths and an expansive, unblocked and elevated midfield vantage point, all of which make Alumni Stadium unlike any other on-campus facility in college soccer.
