New UCLA soccer stadium to be named after Wallis Annenberg

Stadiums

The new stadium for UCLA’s men’s and women’s soccer teams will be named in honor of Wallis Annenberg, whose foundation is donating half of the money needed to transform North Athletic Field to a soccer-specific stadium.

Construction of Wallis Annenberg Stadium, to be completed in phases as money is raised, is projected to begin this fall. The $10 million facility will include capacity to seat 3,000, locker rooms, restrooms and concessions for fans, meeting space, lighting and a scoreboard system.

The Annenberg Foundation has pledged $5 million toward the new facility, which will replace Drake Stadium, an 11,700-capacity track and soccer facility, as the home for Bruins soccer. North Athletic Field is currently used for intramural and club sports.
