U-M Lacrosse Stadium
Home to the University of Michigan men's and women's lacrosse programs, U-M Lacrosse Stadium has permanent seating capacity for 2,000 fans and opened for competition in the 2018 season. The state-of-the-art facility is one of only eight 1,000-plus-seat venues in the country built specifically for Division I lacrosse (six men's and women's venues, two women's-only).
Highlighted by a turf field at the center of the stadium, the venue also features concessions, public restrooms, and merchandising and ticketing areas. Fans will be able to watch game coverage, highlights and in-game statistics on the 12'x24' video board at mid-field. The press box provides ample indoor seating for staff and media, as well as a broadcast booth and camera bay for television crews.
The stadium has direct corridor access to a lacrosse-dedicated facility that houses custom-designed locker rooms, team lounges, meeting rooms and coaches' offices for both the men's and women's lacrosse programs. Both programs also have access to two film rooms and an indoor turf room that can be used for wall ball, individual skill training and small instructional sessions.
Men's lacrosse debuted at U-M Michigan Lacrosse Stadium on Feb. 10, 2018, when the Wolverines defeated Cleveland State, 15-5, in front of 406 fans. The women's lacrosse team made its first appearance in U-M Michigan Lacrosse Stadium six days later on Feb. 16, 2018, when the Maize & Blue took down Butler, 12-2.
The lacrosse facilities connect seamlessly to the new Sport Performance Center, a sparkling 20,000-square-foot strength and conditioning facility. It features an extensive weight room, plyometric hill and cardio space, increased sports medicine areas with hydrotherapy and treadmill pools, as well as a performance nutrition center. Several multipurpose spaces for meetings, team meals and events will also be at the disposal to teams housed in the South Competition and Performance facilities.
The combination of the lacrosse stadium, sport-specific facilities and direct access to the Sport Performance Center provides an all-encompassing home for the men's and women's lacrosse programs that is unparalleled in Division I athletics.
