This new soccer and track complex for the University of Illinois located at the new Demirjian Park is the first of its kind on UIUC campus, providing a home for both the soccer and track programs.

The new $13.4M, 21,300 square foot facility provides locker rooms and team facilities for women’s soccer and men’s and women’s track; official’s locker rooms, bleachers for viewing both track and soccer events; and public concessions and restroom facilities.

The pre-engineered aluminum bleacher seating extends from the building in each direction to provide 700 permanent seats for each venue. An open-air patio allows fans to access both the track and soccer venues from the concourse level.

The facility contains spaces for recruiting, memorabilia, lounge, nutrition center, team meeting area, hospitality, training, medical, and more. The concourse features glass from floor to ceiling to allow occupants to overlook each venue with unobstructed views. A third-level press box provides broadcast and media space for both track and soccer events.
