On April 1, 2000, Arizona State University unveiled the latest amenity in its sports facilities, Sun Devil Soccer Stadium.
Sun Devil Soccer Stadium features chair-back bleachers and individual seats with a capacity for 1,051 fans. The grandstand, which sits on the west side of the field, creates an exciting atmosphere due to its close proximity to the field. The stands are raised so that the first row sits eight feet over the field and is 20 feet from the sideline. Seats are accessible by either ramps or stairwells.
Sun Devil Soccer Stadium features several amenities, making it the premier stadium in the Pac-12 and one of the best collegiate stadiums in the country. The stadium consists of built-in coaches' offices, a fully equipped training room, concession stand, team shop, press area and a home team locker room.
The turf consists of Bermuda grass and the penalty boxes are seeded with Tiffway 419. In the winter months, it is over-seeded with Perinal Rye grass. The dimensions of the field can vary. The ASU women's soccer team plays on a field that is 120 x 75 yards.
There are six banks of lights that allow for the versatility of night games. In addition, four suspended speakers provide superb sound quality.
