Lady'Back Field:
Home of Arkansas Soccer


        The University of Arkansas has always been pro-active when it comes to women's athletics, and the lifespan of Lady'Back Field is a tribute to that stance. When it was constructed in 1992, Lady'Back Field was the first collegiate soccer field in the country that was dedicated solely to the use by a women's team. To this day it remains one of just a handful of such fields.
        With improvements planned following its construction, a fieldhouse was built to house locker rooms for both participating teams, and lights were erected to allow the Lady'Backs to practice and play at any time.
        Arguably the best field in the Southeastern Conference, for both facilities and playing surface, the field was the host for the 1994 SEC Championship Tournament and was the first field to televise a women's soccer match in the SEC.
        On the agenda for the 1999 season were several improvements including wrought-iron fencing around the field, a ticket booth and permanent professional-style players' benches.
        Following the 1999 soccer campaign construction for a new stadium to accommodate the growing fan base at Lady'Back Field began. Completed in the spring of 2001, the stadium now seats 1,500 spectators and includes chairback seating for season ticket holders as well as fully functional press facilities, radio booths and a VIP hospitality area.
