DAIL SOCCER FIELD
A new era of NC State men's and women's soccer began in 2008, with the opening of the Dail Soccer Field located in the heart of campus. For the first time in school history, the Wolfpack soccer teams are able to play night games, as the soccer stadium is located inside NC State's track under stadium lights. One of the top features is the new scoreboard, equipped with full-Matrix capabilities. In 2009, the men's soccer team hosted an NCAA second round game at the Dail Soccer Field.
During the summer of 2011, Dail Soccer Field received even more updates. Seat-back chairs and bleachers have significantly upgraded the seating comfort for NC State fans, and includes bleachers behind both goals. A new brick facade also encompasses the stadium, while a press box, new fan entrance and a new building in the southeast corner of the stadium provides both the Pack and its competitors meeting and locker room space and showers.
WOLFPACK TRAINING COMPLEX (WTC)
The Wolfpack Training Center (WTC) is the practice facility for both the men's and women's soccer teams. The complex opened in the spring of 2012 and features a grass field, a turf field, lights, 50-foot netting behind the goals and a sound system. The complex is located just across the street from both the Dail Soccer Stadium and the team's locker rooms and sports medicine facility.
The natural grass field is a replica of the Pack's gameday field, the Dail Soccer Field. It is a 120x75 yards, USGA sandbased field with hybrid Bermuda grass, and a tile drainage system.
The synthetic surface is 100x68 yards FIFA certified infill system that is the first synthetic field on NC State's campus. A third area is extra turf space which features penalty box dimensions which can be used for set pieces and shooting on goal.
There is also a 25,000 sq ft warm-up/training area off that field as you enter the complex for the teams, an electronic gate so players can have access to train individually any time, a storage area with equipment for them to use, and top of the line Kwik Goal goals and training equipment.
"The WTC is one of the best facilities in the country. We create a professional environment in training and expect our players to be excellent. The training facility has helped us create this environment and will help our players to develop as individuals and as a collective group. The details that we were able to include set the facility apart."
