Considered one of the toughest places for opponents to play in collegiate soccer, South Field consistently ranks among the NCAA top 10 in attendance for women's soccer. In the fall of 2012, the women's soccer team defeated No. 6 ranked Penn State 3-1 in front of 4,922 fans, which was at the time the largest crowd in BYU soccer history. In 2013, BYU set two new single game attendance records. In a 3-0 win over Nebraska on Aug. 31, 5,108 fans were in attendance. One week later on Sept. 6, BYU beat Utah 1-0 in front of 5,402, the current record for attendance at South Field.
Located just south of the Smith Fieldhouse, South Field boasts one of the best-maintained grass playing surfaces in the NCAA. In fact, the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team chose South Field as its practice field in preparation for the 2005 World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica. South Field is also equipped with state-of-the-art field lights, making night games a favorite among fans. In addition, the Wasatch Mountains serve as a scenic backdrop for the dedicated fans.
This popular facility recently went under renovations in March 2008. The renovation project was completed August 2008. The South Field now features a permanent grandstand of 20 rows that will accommodate 4,200 spectators in chair and bench-back seating. The grandstand is 26 feet high, 216 feet across and 65 feet deep. The complex also features a new entrance.
