Ole Miss Soccer Stadium

The Ole Miss Soccer Stadium stands as a beacon for success on the Oxford campus. Since the complex was christened on Sept. 28, 1997, in a regionally televised game against Alabama, the Rebels have been victorious in nearly 70 percent of their home matches, posting an impressive 126-54-21 mark through 2016.

In the last four years alone, just shy of 40,000 fans have crossed through the gates at the complex, averaging 877 fans per game in that stretch. In those four years, Ole Miss ranked no lower than 33rd in total attendance, and reached as high as No. 24 in 2015 (11,087).

Thanks to the tremendous fan support in the last four years, the Rebels have won 29 games on their home pitch, and have never finished at .500 or below in home contests. Dating back to the 2010 season when current head coach Matthew Mott arrived, Ole Miss has amassed 47 home wins, and greeted 59,000-plus fans through the gates.

In fact, 13 of the top-20 crowds in program history have come under Mott's tenure, including eight of the top-10 crowds all-time. The Rebels have posted a top-10 crowd in three-straight seasons, including the most fans ever at an Ole Miss soccer game, 1,823 vs. Georgia in the debut of the SEC Network on Aug. 22, 2014.

In 2015, 1,510 showed up to watch Ole Miss knock off No. 10 Auburn for the fifth-largest crowd ever, before 1,335 fans witnessed the 2016 season opener vs. Louisiana, good enough for eighth-largest in program history.

In terms of facility improvement, plenty of upgrades have taken place to keep the venue near the top of the league. Prior to 2011, a new playing surface was installed, before improvements were again made prior to the 2013 season giving the Rebels one of the top fields in the SEC.

Helping to provide the perfect environment for collegiate soccer, upgrades were again made prior to the 2016 season to the graphics and video elements of the stadium. In a campus-wide project improvement from Daktronics, the venue received a high-definition board, which stands as one of the largest in the SEC.

With seating for over 1,500 spectators, the stadium is located directly behind the Gillom Sports Center, which is also currently undergoing major renovations with a completion date set for 2017.

The 2002 season was a momentous one for Ole Miss Soccer Stadium, as it was not only the site of the SEC Tournament, but also underwent one of its first facelifts. A two-story brick building was constructed, supplying a three-room media area on the top floor and new concessions and restrooms on the bottom, facing the outside of the stadium.

The new building, coupled with the bricking of the backside of the stands and landscaping all around the complex, give the Rebels one of the finest and most attractive soccer stadiums in the nation. The new construction concluded just prior to the SEC Tournament, which was also an overwhelming success. The Rebels' first-round match with Kentucky drew a crowd of 1,588 - the fourth largest in stadium history.
