The field is made of bermuda grass and features multiple seating options for fans. Bleachers sit atop a concrete slab with a banked grass seating area for fans to the sides and in front to allow patrons to bring their own chairs or spread out a blanket and enjoy the match. An LED scoreboard on the North end keeps everyone aware of the key components of the match.
