Truman Soccer Park

The Truman Soccer Park was constructed in 1982 and was used for the first time in 1983. Located southeast of Campbell Apartments, the park features a natural grass pitch and practice  field running in an east-west direction. The field also contains an in-ground irrigation system.

Aluminum bleachers run along the north side of the playing surface with seating for approximately 350 people. In 2003, the park added additional space to accommodate temporary bleachers for larger crowds.

The north side also features a wooden press box area for statisticians and other media personnel.

The players' benches are located on the south side of the playing field with locker facilities located within Pershing Arena.

The field played host to its first NCAA tournament game in 1995 when the men's program hosted Mercyhurst (Pa.) in quarterfinal action of the Div. II tournament. The women's team hosted its first NCAA games in 2001.

The largest crowd to see a game at the park was during the 2003 men's quarterfinal against Findlay (Ohio), with more than 900 in attendance.
