The home of the Huskers, the Nebraska Soccer Field and its surrounding facilities provide NU players with every tool needed to be successful. Since moving on campus for the first time in school history in 2005, the Huskers have played the past nine seasons on the field, which is located off the northeast corner of Memorial Stadium. Nebraska has won nearly 75 percent of its games at the Nebraska Soccer Field. The Huskers are 63-24-12 at home over the past nine seasons, including an impressive combined record of 34-13-4 over the past five seasons. The facilities features seating for at least 3,500.
Amenities such as sideline seating that give fans an up-close view of the action mere feet from the sidelines, a new video screen/scoreboard and conveniently located concessions and restrooms add to the atmosphere, along with a brilliant red 'N' emblazoned across the center circle in the middle of the field.
The Nebraska Soccer Field offers a truly unique setting unlike any other in the nation. Its proximity to the Huskers' locker rooms and meeting rooms, as well as the strength and athletic medicine facilities makes Nebraska's newest facilities not only the most unique, but the most functional and convenient as well.
Located directly next to the Nebraska Soccer Field, the Hawks Championship Center houses the team’s coaches’ offices, locker rooms, meetings rooms and indoor practice facilities. Nebraska is one of the few schools in the nation with all of its soccer facilities located on campus.
Named after a former Husker defender, the Jenna Cooper Team Room includes a flat screen, high-definition television, a conference table and a lounge area for hosting team meetings and other gatherings. Players and coaches each have ample space to view game or practice video, giving them a greater edge in preparing for competition.
Nebraska’s locker rooms include a student-athlete lounge, where players can relax between classes, meetings or practices while watching television or surfing on wireless Internet.
The newly redesigned soccer locker room features hand-made wood units for each player. The lockers are also customized with a name plate and action photo of the player. The design of the locker room allows each athlete to have a greater amount of space and personal storage, while providing a convenient location next to the players’ lounge.
The Hawks Championship Center opened for the soccer team during the spring of 2006. The magnificent facility features FieldTurf ideal for year-round indoor training for the Huskers.
On Thursday, July 18, 2013, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents approved the program statement and budget for Nebraska Athletics to build dedicated, on-campus soccer and tennis practice and competition facilities. The $20.4 million Nebraska Soccer and Tennis Complex will include one outdoor, lighted, full-sized competition field with seating for approximately 2,500 spectators.
A 73,900-square foot support facility is also planned to serve all athletic programs with many amenities including showers and dressing rooms, a satellite sports medicine treatment area as well as spectator restrooms and concession stands.
“It has been a 20-year dream to have our team play in a soccer specific stadium on our own campus,” Head Soccer Coach John Walker said. “The return of ‘night games,’ a closer proximity of fans to the action and improved fan amenities will greatly enhance the game-day experience for both players and supporters. Everyone in the soccer program is very thankful for the support and generosity of our Administration in making this project a reality. It’s a monumental moment for the Nebraska Soccer program.”
