The new soccer stadium at Rhodes Field was dedicated at Homecoming on Nov. 2, 2002. Through the generosity of several alumni, Rhodes Field now has a beautiful brick facade with elevated spectator seating for 650 and the Rapaport Family Suite, making it the newest collegiate soccer facility in the Ivy League.
The 2005 season marked the return of nighttime soccer to Penn, as lights were installed at Rhodes Field. The addition greatly enhanced the atmosphere of games, as the Quakers hosted packed crowds for night games. The installation of the floodlights were made possible by the generosity of Marc Rapaport W’79.
The grass playing surface is continuously and meticulously maintained, and only collegiate soccer contests are permitted on the field throughout the year.
Set beneath the Philadelphia skyline on the west bank of the Schuylkill River, Rhodes Field is easy to walk to from anywhere on the Penn campus, as well as to drive to from various highways.
