Roberts Stadium • Home of Princeton Soccer
Roberts Stadium opened September 2, 2008 with a 2-1 comeback win for the Princeton women's soccer team over Boston University. The stadium was formally dedicated October 4, 2008 in a 1-0 win for the women's team over Dartmouth. Princeton's women went 7-1-1 in the first season in their new home, and through the 2015 season, the Tiger women have a record of 44-16-10 at Roberts Stadium.
The facility has seating for 2,356 spectators on three sides of the grass game field, called Myslik Field. On the sideline opposite the team benches is the bulk of the seating and one of three permanent buildings at the site, an enclosed press box atop a ticket office that can be used to facilitate ticketed events. All regular-season Princeton soccer games are free.
Behind the north goal, adjacent to the Poe Intramural Field, is one of two sets of permanent restrooms with a plaza featuring Princeton soccer history and the banners recognizing the men's and women's teams NCAA tournament appearances, Ivy League titles and twin College Cup appearances, in 1993 for the men and 2004 for the women. Roberts Stadium hosted its first NCAA women's tournament game in 2015, a 4-2 win for the Tigers over Boston College.
On the opposite side of the stadium, along with another set of permanent restrooms, is a concession stand open at all Princeton soccer games. Those facilities stand atop locker rooms for the home and visiting teams, complete with showers and restrooms, as well as rooms for the athletic trainer and game officials.
Roberts Stadium, named for Thomas S. Roberts '85, a Princeton goalkeeper and the project's lead donor, also features Plummer Field, a turf practice area adjacent to the grass Myslik Field. Princeton's game field is named in memory of Robert H. Myslik '90, a soccer alumnus and assistant coach who passed away in 2003.
Princeton's new home replaced Lourie-Love Field, which stood on the same site but had no permanent seating. Lourie-Love, which was named in 1986 for football alumni Donold B. Lourie '22 and George H. Love '22, saw its largest crowd when 2,504 fans watched Princeton advance to the 2004 College Cup with a win over Washington. During the 2007 season, the Princeton soccer teams played at Princeton Stadium while Roberts Stadium was being constructed.
