Albion's athletics master plan calls for a permanent facility to support soccer in the fall and lacrosse in the spring. Lacrosse becomes an officially sanctioned MIAA sport for both men and women in 2012-13.
Reconfigured to a new north-south orientation, the complex will have new artificial turf and permanent bleachers and press box facilities. With the addition of stadium lights, it will also better serve Albion's intramural and club sports programs and allow the College to host both high school and collegiate tournaments, bringing many new visitors to Albion's campus.
"There has been a rise in competition for facilities in the MIAA and these facilities will place us on par with our MIAA rivals," Athletic Director Matt Arend said.
Named gift opportunities include:
Naming of soccer/lacrosse complex
Installation of artificial turf field
Permanent stadium lights
Permanent press box and public address system
Permanent perimeter fence
