The excitement surrounding the Penn Soccer program is at its highest levels in years this week as work begins on a new facility for the program. The news follows Head Coach Rudy Fuller's recent announcements regarding the talented incoming class, the challenging 2002 schedule, and the inaugural Penn Soccer Classic. The new Rhodes' Field will have elevated seating for 650 spectators and a spectator box.
Demolition work began on June 25 at the site and the facility will be completed in time for the Penn's home opener in the Penn Soccer Classic on the weekend of September 20-21, 2002.

Fuller stated, "Penn Soccer, with all its history and tradition, deserves a proper home and this new facility is a fantastic example of the commitment both the administration and our alumni have in returning Penn Soccer to the top of the Ivy League and making it one of the best programs in the country."
The facility was made possible through the generosity of the alumni and friends of Penn Soccer.
