University Field

University Field
The home of UTEP soccer since its inception in 1996, University Field has been the site of many historic events during the program's history. The Miners have forged a record of 112-33-9 at the venue while packing in the fans.

More than 115 players have proudly taken to the field in its 15-year history. The record in the Sun City stands at 86-14-5 since 2002, which was aided by a mark of 8-2-2 in 2011. In 1999, the addition of lights to the field made it possible for the Miners to play night games. On Thursday, Sept. 23, of that year, UTEP defeated Arizona, 4-3, in the first night game of the facility.

In spring 2006, the facility received a $100,000 overhaul with a state-of-the-art drainage system, new sod, improved electrical wiring and refurbished light standards. During Kevin Cross' tenure, fans have flocked to the field to support the Miners. UTEP has led C-USA in attendance in four years, and played in front of a school-record 1,705 fans in a 2-0 triumph against New Mexico State on Aug. 10, 2011. The natural-grass playing surface measures 120'x75' with player warm-up areas behind both benches.
