ALDO SANTAGA STADIUM
Aldo Santaga Stadium is the home pitch for Green Bay men's and women's
soccer teams. The stadium is a lighted playing surface of natural grass
and measures 120 yards long by 75 yards wide. Approximately 1,500 fans
can be seated in the grandstands which line the east side of the field.
A team souvenir and concession building and restrooms are located
behind the grandstands. Locker room facilities and soccer offices are
located a short distance away in the Kress Events Center. Green Bay
men's and women's soccer has six regulation practice fields, two of
which are lighted.
Aldo Santaga Stadium sits on what was once the number one fairway of
the Shorewood Country Club. The lights were purchased in 1980 at a cost
of $2,975 and were formerly used to light Lambeau Field for Green Bay
Packer football games. Prior to lights being installed, all home night
games were played on the lighted practice field. In 1983 the University
added the team dugouts and in 1991 a new scoreboard was put in place.
Prior to Santaga Stadium being built, all Green Bay men's
soccer home games and practices were held at either Bay Beach Park or
Johannes Park in downtown Green Bay.
