Florida Gulf Coast University is committed to providing its student-athletes with the very best in athletics facilities. The FGCU Soccer Complex is evidence of that dedication.
The Complex features an international-quality playing field of lush Celebration Bermuda grass, which is ideal for sports fields due to its excellent wear tolerance, for the Eagle soccer teams. The surface is a modified sand-based field with an in-ground irrigation system for drainage of rainwater and a sprinkler system that allows the FGCU grounds keeper to keep the field in top playing condition throughout the year. The system makes the field safer and more playable in a rain-soaked game.
The combination of sandy soil and irrigation allows the FGCU grounds keeper to maintain a healthy and vigorous playing surface. The field is mowed with a mower designed for golf fairways, which results in a field that rivals those of professional soccer.
