Bryan's soccer field is home to nearly a hundred games each season, for both our men's and women's soccer teams. It has been called by many of our opponents the "best field in the conference" and our opponents hate to play us at home, primarily because of the interaction of our fans.
While our field is top-notch, our fan seating leaves much to be desired. We have only a few bench-type stadium seats and overall the seating area is unkempt and in need of significant improvement. That's where you come in. Do you remember cheering your Lions on to victory? Perhaps you were down on the field and you experienced the electrifying presence of your fans. You can help us to improve the experience for our fans and players by helping us raise the money needed to clean up and improve the fan area.
The project has been split into three potential phases, with a projected cost of $80,000 if all the work is contracted out.
- $100 donation » Your gift of $100 will "buy a block" for our retaining wall, and a name plate with your information will be attached to a block somewhere in the wall. Name plates can be made in honor or memory of someone, with your name, or for your class. Click the block on the right to donate now!
- Bleacher donation » Your gift of $1000 to purchase a bleacher will be honored with a name plate attached to a bleacher, which will remain in place as long as the bleacher is in use. (Click the link below in phase three to donate a bleacher.)
