Built on the site of the Tennessee Soccer Complex, Regal Soccer Stadium is the brand new home of Lady Vols soccer.
Take a guided tour of Regal Soccer Stadium, which has room for 3,000 fans.
The new stadium, funded through private donations, including the bulk of money given by Knoxville-based Regal Entertainment Group, features stadium seating for approximately 3,000 fans and concessions stands on both the upper and lower levels. The upgraded facility includes a state-of-the-art scoreboard from Daktronics and a new press box with separate booths for television and/or radio along with phone lines and Internet access.
The grounds still feature two 80 x 120-yard fields with less than a one percent crown on the competition field and television-standard lights on the game field. The fields are Bermuda grass and boast total field irrigation. Both home and visiting teams will enjoy new locker rooms built into the stadium that will have a team meeting area. UT also benefits from a players' lounge, featuring a flat-screen television, pool table and kitchen area, as well as a video room with theater seating.
