Michael A. Carroll Stadium
Built in 1982, the Michael A. Carroll Track & Soccer Stadium on the campus of Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) cost $7 million to construct. In 2012, Carroll Stadium completed installation of a new FieldTurf Revolution soccer field, featuring a 110 x 75 yard field that can accommodate all levels of soccer, including the IUPUI Jaguars' men's and women's NCAA Division I programs. Carroll Stadium seats 12,111 patrons for track and field, but will have a capacity right around 11,000 for Indy Eleven contests, with the team set to use approximately 6,000 of the permanent grandstand seats while bringing in another 5,000 temporary seats.
Indy Eleven will assist IUPUI in making accommodations that will create a more soccer-specific environment during the team’s stay at Carroll Stadium, with construction set to begin in February 2014. Twenty-one Premium Suites will be constructed on the north side of the field and new bleacher stands will be added immediately behind both goals - approximately 2,000 on each end - to bring the fans closer to the action. While the changes will reduce the total seating capacity, in return they will improve intimacy by adding the new seating adjacent to the north, east and west sides of the field. The press box can accommodate 72 working media members, including wireless internet access throughout.
Carroll Stadium hosted both the 2006 and 2007 USA Track and Field Championships in addition to the 1988 Olympic Track and Field Team Trials, annual IHSAA Lacrosse State Championships, the Horizon League Track and Field Championships, the 2001 World Police and Fire Games, numerous NCAA and IHSAA soccer and track competitions and other marquee events.
