The Marquette men's and women's soccer teams are in their sixth season of play at Valley Fields, an athletic complex and recreational area for Marquette students and Milwaukee Community. Located at 1818 Canal Street, Valley Fields is Marquette's first-ever on-campus soccer facility.
The $8 million facility includes a grass field that is the home to Golden Eagles soccer. The Valley Fields also houses an artificial turf field for intramurals, recreational and practice and/or play of rugby, lacrosse and softball, among other club sports, an eight-lane 400-meter running track that surrounds an artificial turf field, and an area for field events such as the long jump, high jump, triple jump, pole vault, shot put, discus and javelin.
Among other things, Valley Fields features a lighting system, first-aid and vending areas and a high-tech security system. A donor wall also is located in the vestibule of the facility's main building.
Decisions made on the design and programming for the project were made by a broad-based group of people from the university, including Marquette's Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreational Sports Bill Cords.
