Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium & Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility

 

Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium

Year Opened: 2000
Field Surface: Natural Grass

History: Prior to the beginning of the 2000 season, the Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium was completed on the ever-expanding campus of TCU. The home field of the TCU women's soccer team is more than a state-of-the-art venue; it is a tangible indicator of the support and dedication that TCU shows a sport that grows more popular in the United States every year as well as ranks as the world's number-one sport.

The Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium boasts 1,500 seats and features both playing and workout spaces, a press box, ample parking and storage. A covered porch overlooking the field allows fans of the Purple and White to host parties as well as youth teams. In the Spring of 2006, the Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium received another lift with the addition of lights to the stadium allowing the Frogs to play night games at home for the first time in school history. The four poles providing 50-foot candles of power that cover the field of play as well as the practice field. In addition, the Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium recently added a new LED scoreboard.

The construction of the home field for the TCU women's soccer team would not have been possibly had it not been for the dedication of Manny and Rosalyn Rosenthal - who donated $300,000 to the project - and James, Shirley and Richard Garvey and the Garvey Texas Foundation - who donated $250,000 for the program.

August 2010 marked the debut of the newest addition to the Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium when the Jane Justin Fieldhouse was completed. The newest TCU athletics complex is approximately 5,000-square-feet and includes home and visitor locker rooms in addition to a training room, offices, lounge area and a wrap-around raised viewing terrace.

The $1.5-million donation from the Jane and John Justin Foundation marked the largest gift ever at TCU for a project geared solely for women's athletics.

Year Opened: 2007
Field Surface: Artificial Turf

History: The Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility and Cox Field was dedicated to the TCU Athletics Department on May 10, 2007, and provides Horned Frog student-athletes with one of the best indoor practice facilities in all of collegiate athletics.

Following a $7-million gift from the Jane and John Justin Foundation and Cox Family, the Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility and Cox Field is an 80,000-square foot complex that features an 80-yard field with a regulation 52-yard width and two full end zones. The climate-controlled facility measures 60 feet from turf to the highest point of its vaulted ceiling, which allows for all passing and kicking drills.

Widely-recognized around the country as a model for future indoor facilities, the Linbeck Group was awarded with the 2008 AGC/Quoin Summit Merit Award sponsored by the Association of General Contractors for their efforts. A long-time partner of TCU Athletics, the Linbeck Group received the honor for developing the project to TCU's satisfaction and recruiting needs while overcoming the adversity of several weather-related obstacles, including 42 days of down time during the wettest year on record in Fort Worth.

The Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility and Cox Field was designed by Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford.
