Columbia Soccer Stadium
The Columbia Soccer Stadium has housed the Columbia men's soccer team since 1957 and the women's squad since its inception in 1986.
It received an overhaul in June of 2007, as state-of-the-art FieldTurf Tarkett was installed. The surface is used in Giants Stadium and Toronto’s soccer-specific BMO Field and was on display for the 2007 home doubleheader with the women’s squad on September 7.
“We are thrilled to complete this project in support of our men and women’s soccer teams,” Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education Dr. M. Dianne Murphy said. “This is a first-rate field that shows our dedication to excellence for our soccer programs.”
The surface is a hybrid fiber, rubber and sand infill designed to have a more consistent feel and a faster pace.
