The entire complex cost $6 million to build and includes three fields, including separate practice fields for both the men's and women's teams. The 2,200-seat stadium is built around the central field, and it includes stands on both sides of the field that are both covered by a roof. The stadium features a press box, separate home locker rooms for both the men's and women's teams, an athletic medicine training room, and handicap seating, as well as restrooms and concessions for spectators.
Michigan supporters are known as Michigan Ultras. They support the Michigan Wolverines men's and women's soccer teams from the student section. The section consists of over 900 members and is located in the student bleachers of the U-M Soccer Complex and is a registered official student organization with the University of Michigan.
