With a grand opening on Aug. 23, 2013, the Dr. Jack A. Dugan Family Soccer and Track Stadium, located on Nile Drive just west of Oso Bay, became another jewel in Islanders Athletics' Momentum Campus facilities.
The approximately $8.8 million facility is home to the Islanders track team and the newly-established Islanders women's soccer program. The 15,300-square foot facility, which features a soccer field enclosed by an eight-lane track, will host Southland Conference competitions as well as non-conference games and tournaments featuring nationally-prominent programs from across the country. There is also seating for up to 1,000 spectators, concessions, a press box, private suites, locker rooms, training rooms, storage, a ticket office, coaching offices, and a paved parking lot.
In its two years as a soccer facility, "The Jack" has seen some of the top crowds in the Southland Conference. The Islanders have finished second in both 2013 and 2014 in the league in attendance, behind only two-time defending champ Stephen F. Austin. Included in that is a school-record crowd of 1,908 against Texas on Sept. 5, 2014.
Dugan Stadium has also played host to four track meets – two in 2014 and 2015 – since its opening. It marks the first time the Islanders have been able to host a home track meet in their program history.
The facility will also be the host of the 2016 Southland Outdoor Track & Field Championships and the 2016 Southland Soccer Championship.
