Skyhawk Field (Soccer)
The UT Martin women's soccer program has called Skyhawk Field its home since 1998. It is a 120 x 75 Bermuda pitch with a press box and permanent seating for over 500 fans along the west sideline. Fans also circle the field with trucks, lawn chairs and couches to creat a festive atmosphere that is intimidating to opponents.
In the summer of 2010, Skyhawk Field received a massive facelift. New colorful wind screen were also added to give the field a professional exterior look, and new brick barriers were also built around both benches. Another new feature added are a pair of large tents that have been placed over the two adjacent sets of bleachers that sandwich the main bleachers. This provides a comfortable, shady climate for fans of all ages to enjoy.
Skyhawk Field has also been home to the PUMA Skyhawk Invitational from 2002-2007 and 2009, as well as the first round of the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament in 1999, 2003 and 2008.
