Aggie Stadium Ellis Natural Grass Soccer Field with AirDrain Agronomic Drainage Installed

 

In addition to the 2009 NCAA Women’s Soccer College Cup, the stadium hosted the 2005 NCAA Women’s College Cup and the 2007 NCAA Women’s Soccer College Cup.

It’s only fitting that one of the nation’s premier soccer programs has one of the premier collegiate soccer facilities in the country to call home.

Sporting one of the finest playing surfaces in the nation and boasting a college soccer atmosphere second to none, the Aggie Soccer Stadium Ellis Field enters its 16th season as home of the Texas A&M soccer program.

The facility underwent a major reorganization in 2005, as the main stands were raised off the ground and brought several feet closer to the playing surface, bringing fans even closer to the action. Perhaps the most noticeable change was the addition of a spacious press box and camera deck on the facility’s east side. On the west side, reserved seating for over 500 fans was placed between the covered team benches, offering fans the opportunity to truly feel a part of the game.

The Aggie Soccer Stadium, with an expanded capacity of 3,500, also boasts a state-of-the-art, soccer-specific scoreboard on the southwest side of the facility and an auxiliary scoreboard on the northeast corner of the pitch. Installed in the fall of 2004, the scoreboard features a color light board and in-match statistics to complement the traditional score, clock and horn and is one of the finest in college soccer.

The facility is located just a few steps from the team’s new complex which opened in 2003. It contains spacious players’ and coaches’ locker rooms, a luxurious players’ lounge, official and visiting team dressing rooms, and a state-of-the-art athletic training facility and public restrooms.

The Aggie Soccer Stadium is conveniently located on Texas A&M’s West Campus inside the Carolyn and Jack Little Athletic Complex, which also houses the softball and track facilities. It is located adjacent to Reed Arena (basketball) and Olsen Field (baseball) also an AirField System AirDrain field, with ample parking just yards away from the entrance.

The stadium shone on the national stage in 2005 and 2007 as Aggieland played host to the NCAA Women’s College Cup. Over 13,000 fans attended the event, which will return to College Station in December of 2009.

With dimensions of 115 yards by 75 yards, the regulation NCAA championship soccer field features Tifway Bermuda grass, making it home to one of the finest natural grass playing surfaces in the country. With a state-of-the-art drainage system installed prior to the 2002 campaign, the surface can handle whatever mother nature throws at it!

Postponements and cancellations of practices and matches are all but a thing of the past. The award-winning A&M grounds crew is responsible for field maintenance.

Aggie soccer enjoys incredible support from the community. From an average of 329 fans in the inaugural season in 1994, A&M soccer has boasted the second-largest attendance numbers the last three seasons, and led the nation in total attendance in 2004, 2006 and 2007. Over 150,000 fans have poured through the gates of the Aggie Soccer Stadium in just the past four seasons alone.

In 2005, a program-best average of 3,363 fans per game ranked second nationally. The success continued in ’06, as the Aggies bested their own national record for total season attendance when 47,035 poured through the turnstiles. A&M set the NCAA single game attendance record on Aug. 25, 2006 when 8,204 of the Aggie faithful filled the stands to watch the Aggies defeat eventual national champion North Carolina.

Since the facility opened in 1994, the Aggies have enjoyed a commanding 150-21-2 record at the Aggie Soccer Stadium, not including a perfect 7-0-0 record at Old Tiger Field in the program’s inaugural year of 1993. The Aggies put together a school-record 23-match consecutive home win streak from 2001 to 2003.
