    Lakeside Field

    Northwestern's new Lakeside Field hosted its first game on September 12, 2007 and hosted its first night contest on November 2, 2007. Lakeside Field is home to Northwestern's men's soccer, women's soccer and women's lacrosse programs. Located along the shores of scenic Lake Michigan and with a clear view of downtown Chicago in sight, the facility is one of the best of its kind in all of collegiate soccer and certainly one of the most picturesque.

    Lakeside Field features a new scoreboard, a game operations box, permanent stands for 2,000 fans and lights for night games. FieldTurf, the company responsible for the playing surface, has informed Northwestern the field has received a FIFA 2-Star Certification -- making it the first field installed by FieldTurf to receive such a distinction.
