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 99-40-15 mark through 2011.

Prior to the 2011 season, a new playing surface was installed. A photo gallery and time-lapse video of the new sod installation can be found by clicking here.  Helping to provide the perfect environment for collegiate soccer in 2006 was a brand new state-of-the-art scoreboard and color graphics message board. With seating for over 1,500 spectators, the stadium is located directly behind the Gillom Sports Center, which provides top-notch locker rooms for both teams, a team meeting area for the Rebels, a changing room for officials and the UM coaches' offices.

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 a major facelift. 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 second largest in stadium history. 

In recent years, Ole Miss Soccer Stadium has played host for some of the highest attendances of any Rebel women's sport. The 2001 season finale against Mississippi State attracted the largest crowd in stadium history. The Friday night grudge match drew a standing-room-only crowd of 1,791, and kept each fan's eyes glued to the field for every second of the double-overtime thriller. The stadium has also seen crowds of 1,421 for Notre Dame in 2006, 1,141 for Auburn in 2003, 1,212 for Mississippi State in 2011, 1,133 for LSU in 1998, 1,132 for Florida in 2011 and 1,089 for Mississippi State in 2005.
