11 NCAA Div. III national team championships
With underground irrigation, the new Central soccer field has a high-quality playing surface, with a press box and team shelters. New soccer practice fields were developed in 2003 and the new game field debuted in September, 2005.
"I can't tell you how truly fortunate we are to have a field like this," men's coach Garry Laidlaw said. "It's as good as any Division III field in the country. It's immaculate. It's a nice even surface, it's cut short and it plays fairly quick. The players are very impressed."
"Central has some of the best game and practice fields in the Midwest and the quality of facilities rivals a lot of Division I programs," said women's coach Mike Kobylinski. "The environment we train and play in is seldom matched."
