On a cold fall night, the noise can be heard over a mile away. Follow the noise and you will find one of the most exciting soccer atmospheres in all of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The Goshen College Soccer Complex has a long history of success having seen 19 Mid-Central College Conference Championships on the men's side and is a consistent host to conference and regional tournament contests.
The consistent on-the-field success of its teams has contributed to and certainly benefited from a wild and boisterous fan base. Standing from whistle to whistle the Maple Leaf faithful make the Goshen College Soccer Complex the most difficult places to play in the MCC. With chants for every situation, the fans keep opponents and officials on their toes.
The outstanding atmosphere would never be possible without the design of the complex. One of a growing number of lighted soccer-specific stadiums in the NAIA, the GC Soccer Complex is lit by four oversized light standards with 18 high-watt bulbs on each.
Completely covered cement dugouts sit directly in front of the 500-plus seat grandstands. At the top of the grandstand sits the press box that allows room for media, a radio broadcast team, and statistic crews. It also serves as a modest wind break for the later season contests. Directly to the south and west of the stadium are three separate practice field, making the Goshen College Soccer Complex ideal for hosting multiple teams and events on the same day.
