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 133-41-12 at the venue while packing in the fans.

More than 115 players have proudly taken to the field in its 19-year history. The record in the Sun City stands at 107-22-8 since 2002, which was aided by a mark of 8-3-1 in 2014. 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.

During Kevin Cross's tenure, fans have flocked to the field to support the Miners. UTEP has led C-USA in attendance in five years since joining the league.

After 19 season with a natural-grass playing surface, the field received a major upgrade in the summer of 2015, which was converted to FieldTurf Revolution CoolPlay. Designed to reduce surface heat, FieldTurf's exclusive cork top dressing allows the revolutionary CoolPlay system to deliver the same results and overall stability as FieldTurf's proven elite systems found in the world's most renowned stadiums.
