Nebraska Soccer Facilities

 



The Nebraska soccer team trains and competes at some of the top facilities in the country. The team moved into the brand new Hibner Soccer Stadium in 2015 and also has multiple training facilities. Look below for more details about Nebraska's soccer facilities. 

Hibner Soccer Stadium

Located on 28 acres north of Nebraska Innovation Campus, the Barbara Hibner Soccer Stadium was completed in the summer of 2015, and played host to its first game on Wednesday, Aug. 12, when the Huskers defeated South Dakota State in an exhibition match.

Barbara Hibner Field features a new technologically advanced video and scoreboard controlled by HuskerVision to enhance the exciting atmosphere at Nebraska soccer games. Barbara Hibner Field has a fully functioning press box that includes a dedicated area for television and video cameras sits atop 2,500 seats in the grandstand for Nebraska's devout soccer fans.  

In addition to the grandstand seating, berm seating and standing room areas are located around the field to enhance the game-day atmosphere for fans and participants. An outdoor, elevated viewing deck also provides fans a new perspective from the north end zone, while offering a fantastic view of Nebraska's campus, downtown Lincoln and the state Capitol.

The soccer program also benefits from new game-day locker rooms, meeting rooms and athletic medicine areas that make the entire game-day experience among the best in the nation for student-athletes.

The new facility is located on the east side of 14th Street just south of Cornhusker Highway in the heart of Lincoln, with convenient access from campus, downtown, Cornhusker Highway and I-180. It also includes free parking for 600 vehicles in the adjacent lot on the east side of the soccer stadium. The parking lot can be accessed from 14th Street.

Practice Facilities

Located directly next to Memorial Stadium, the Hawks Championship Center houses the soccer team’s coaches’ offices, locker rooms, meetings rooms and indoor practice facility. Nebraska is one of the few schools in the nation with all of its soccer facilities located on campus. The Hawks Championship Center opened for the soccer team during the spring of 2006. The magnificent facility features FieldTurf ideal for year-round indoor training for the Huskers.

The Hawks Championship field also opens onto the practice fields of the Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Facility, which includes one grass field and one field which was converted to FieldTurf in the summer of 2012 and it was replaced during the summer of 2018. The Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Fields help provide Nebraska with the most complete practice facilities in the nation. The Gass Practice Fields give the Huskers two full-size grass fields located in between NU's two indoor practice facilities - the Hawks Championship Center and Cook Pavilion.

Locker Room and Lounge

Nebraska's locker rooms include a student-athlete lounge, where players can relax between classes, meetings or practices.

The newly redesigned soccer locker room features hand-made wood units for each player. The lockers are also customized with a name plate and action photo of the player.

The design of the locker room allows each athlete to have a greater amount of space and personal storage, while providing a convenient location next to the players' lounge.

Named after a former Husker defender, the Jenna Cooper Team Room includes a high-definition television, a conference table and a lounge area for hosting team meetings and other gatherings. Players and coaches each have ample space to view game or practice video, giving them a greater edge in preparing for competition.

Strength and Conditioning

The Nebraska volleyball team utilizes the David and Carol Alloy Strength Complex. The model strength and conditioning program in the nation, Husker Power plays a major role in the continuing success of Nebraska Athletics. Nebraska's strength program was the first in the nation, and their facilities have set the standard in collegiate athletics since the early 1970s.
