    Built in 1997 as part of the $3.5 million Leonard B. Thomas Athletic Complex (LBT), Lakeside Field is one of the premier venues for field hockey in the United States.

    Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan, with the world famous Chicago Skyline serving as a panoramic backdrop, Lakeside Field includes an artificial turf playing field lined specifically for field hockey, permanent seating for approximately 300 fans, a sound system, a permanent scoreboard, lighting for night games and extensive landscaping.

    Lakeside Field was the site for the 2002 Big Ten Field Hockey Tournament and, following field renovations two years later, hosted the Tournament again in 2004.

    The installment of the complex on the north end of Northwestern's main campus brings field hockey closer to where the students live and has attracted additional fans to the team's games. On a sunny day in the fall, the stands are packed to beyond capacity with fans spilling over onto the sidelines.

    Northwestern field hockey is proud to call Lakeside Field "home" as it truly is one of the best and most picturesque facilities in the country.
