SU SOCCER STADIUM
One of the finest natural grass facilities in the Northeast, the SU Soccer Stadium features a lush 120’-by-75’ playing surface, bleachers extending the length of the field and lights for night competition. The 1,500-seat complex also includes a concession area, press box, camera platform for television broadcasts and ample parking.
The facility opened on Aug. 31, 1996 with an Orange men’s and women’s soccer doubleheader. The women’s match was the first in program history and the womens team prevailed 5-2 over Buffalo in its inaugural contest. The men were also victorious that day, defeating Adelphi, 1-0.
Having hosted several crowds of at least 1,000 spectators, the SU Soccer Stadium is one of the most exciting venues in the region to witness collegiate soccer.
Women's SOCCER LOCKER ROOM
The Women's soccer locker room in Manley Field House is complete with spacious shower and lavatory facilities. It features 30 wooden lockers, a large flat-panel HD television and white-board wall. The space is ideal for team video and opponent scouting sessions. It also provides a sense of relaxation and comfort after a long day on the training fields.
One of the most recognizable venues in college sports, the Carrier Dome is the perfect soccer practice facility providing a regulation field that is protected from the elements. The surface of the Dome was upgraded in the summer of 2005 with installation of Field Turf, the material used by the majority of NFL stadiums and several English Premier League clubs.
The Carrier Dome was the primary home of the men’s soccer program prior to the opening of the SU Soccer Stadium in 1996. The team posted an impressive 69-26-11 record in matches played at the Dome from 1980 to 1995.
The current home of the Orange’s football, men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, the Dome boasts a capacity of 49,262 for football and lacrosse. For basketball, crowds of more than 30,000 routinely fill the stands to watch Syracuse’s nationally-ranked men’s team. The building made history on Feb. 27, 2010 when an NCAA on-campus record 34,616 witnessed the team's 95-77 victory against Villanova.
The Dome has hosted several NCAA and BIG EAST Championship events, including the NCAA Final Four for men’s and women’s lacrosse, the regional rounds of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship and the BIG EAST Indoor Track & Field Championship.
Beyond athletics, some of the biggest names in entertainment have performed at the Dome, including the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Billy Joel. The building is also the annual home of SU’s commencement ceremony and many other special events.
Completed in 2004, the Hookway Fields Complex boasts seven natural grass practice fields for training, including two with lights for night sessions. The expansive facility provides plenty of space for simultaneous full-sided games as well as smaller areas for goalkeeper instruction, small-sided games and individual work. The complex also features an equipment storage area, lavatory facilities and parking area.
MANLEY FIELD HOUSE
The newly-transformed Manley Field House affords the Orange another indoor training ground. The recently-completed 2010 renovation included the installation of an 80-yard Field Turf surface, a three-lane track with two sprint lanes and a small AstroTurf area.
The indoor facility is completely protected from the elements and allows ample space for full team practices.
Originally constructed in the early 1960s, the facility is named in honor of Dr. George LeRoy Manley, a former Syracuse University trustee. Manley Field House is the previous home of the Syracuse men’s and women’s basketball programs. The arena also hosted several other events in a variety of sports, including gymnastics, volleyball, wrestling, indoor track and was the long-time home of the Section III high school basketball championships. In addition, it was the site of many non-athletics events, including University convocations and banquets.
MANLEY FIELD HOUSE WEIGHT ROOM
Manley Field House is home to two weight rooms, including an 11,200 square-foot, state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility that opened in 2005. Complete with free weights, cardiovascular equipment and strength-training machines, the facilities provide Orange student-athletes the opportunity to maximize their physical potential.
Student-athletes receive personalized, individual instruction from the department’s strength and conditioning staff headed by Assistant AD for Athletic Performance Will Hicks.
