Murphey Field at Mulcahy Soccer Stadium
The University of Arizona women's soccer program plays and competes at one of the most captivating settings in soccer, Murphey Field at Mulcahy Soccer Stadium, with a spectacular view of the mountains, palms trees and southwestern landscape of Tucson, Ariz. Tucson's climate and the year-round maintenance allow the facility to be in game-ready condition throughout the year.
The home for the University of Arizona women's soccer team at Murphey Field was opened on Sept. 15, 1996 as the Wildcats hosted the University of San Francisco. The hard-fought match marked another successful step for the young Arizona soccer program. In 2006, Arizona hosted the defending national champion Portland Pilots, televised on Fox Sports Net, the first match at Mulcahy Stadium to be televised.
There have been many additions to the Mulcahy Soccer Stadium including the Arizona Soccer Fieldhouse, including a team locker room, an athletic training room, official's area, concession area, ticket office and permanent public restrooms.
In 2011, new state-of-the-art lights were installed over Murphey Field to enhance competition at night for all of the televised games on Pac-12 Networks.
Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium is located at the corner of Plumer Avenue and 15th Street, adjacent to the University of Arizona’s Roy P. Drachman Track and Field Stadium.
The grading and sodding of the field and the installation of lights to play at night on Pac-12 Networks was made possible by the generous assistance of Tucson's Murphey Foundation.
Under first-year head coach Tony Amato, one of the most notable wins of the 2013 season was a 2-0 shutout over in-state rival Arizona State. The win was the Wildcats’ first victory over the Sun Devils since 2009.
