Mountain Lion Stadium


One of four synthetic turf soccer facilities in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, Mountain Lion Stadium is in its eighth year of operation after renovations during the 2005 season. The project was completed as part of a partnership between UCCS, Colorado Springs Christian School, Pepsi and other local businesses. The stadium was built with almost no state funds used.

Mountain Lion Stadium, which has permanent bleachers for 1,200 fans and overflow capability for approximately 4,000 more, is one of the premier soccer facilities in Colorado. The stadium will host Mountain Lion soccer games and Colorado Springs Christian School's football and soccer games. Its new Grass-Tex synthetic surface will improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and allow high-volume use. Grass-Tex is used at more than 4,000 university athletic fields nationwide. There are also two new scoreboards, donated by Pepsi.

The stadium is located at the Four Diamond Sports Complex at 5025 North Nevada Avenue, which began construction in 1979 and later opened in 1980. The complex is a first-rate outdoor recreation facility that includes four baseball/softball fields, a soccer/football field, a concession stand, and a parking lot capable of holding over 300 vehicles. Before the complex had opened UCCS had been the only school of its size and caliber in the state without suitable recreational facilities.
