Dr. Jack Dugan Soccer & Track Stadium
Following a groundbreaking on May 25, 2012, construction of the Dr. Jack Dugan Family Soccer & Track Stadium officially began on the Texas A&M - Corpus Christi Momentum Campus on Nile Drive.
The approximately $8.8 million facility will be home to the Islanders track team and the newly-established Islanders women's soccer program. When it is completed in Spring 2013, the 15,300-square foot facility, which features a soccer field enclosed by an eight-lane track, will host Southland Conference competitions as well as non-conference games and tournaments featuring nationally-prominent programs from across the country. There will also be seating for up to 1,000 spectators, concessions, a press box, private suites, locker rooms, training rooms, storage, a ticket office, coaching offices, and a paved parking lot.
Director of Track and Field Shawn Flanagan on the facility:
“When I got here in 2000 we started talking about putting a track on campus and there were a lot of permutations but at no time did I expect it to be as lovely as this is going to be. This stadium, when it’s completed, is going to give our program a huge boost and give us a facility to practice on. From a recruiting aspect this is going to be one of the best, if not the best, stadiums in the Southland Conference.”
