Description: Through the generosity of one of Tampa’s most prominent families, The University of Tampa soccer teams have the privilege of playing in one of the finest college facilities in the country, Pepin Stadium.
Named for Tampa businessmen Arthur D. Pepin of Pepin Distributors and his wife Polly, Pepin Stadium was rebuilt and dedicated in 2002. The new facility replaced 80-year-old Pepin/Rood Stadium, site of four NCAA National Championships and numerous other high-profile events. An NCAA II attendance record was set during the 1994 championship with a Finals crowd of 4,336.
Pepin Stadium is a 1,500-seat partially covered grandstand with an enclosed press box, meeting and storage space, concession area, rest rooms, locker rooms and a ticket office. The grass field is lighted and bordered by a jogging track. The stadium has hosted five NCAA National Championships, including the 2001 men's title that was won by UT. The venue also hosted the 2008 and 2009 men's and women's championships. Located in the heart of campus, the stadium is home to the University of Tampa men’s and women’s soccer teams as well as many intramural and club sports at the University.
