The new stadium will feature permanent stands, dugouts, lights, locker rooms, rest rooms and concession facilities.
Regal Soccer Stadium
|The average attendance for women's soccer games at UT is in the top 10 nationally. Games currently are held at a facility off Lainard lane, which offers a capacity of just 1,200.

The new stadium will include a press box, rest rooms, concession stands and locker rooms.|
