This month, dozens of artificial turf rolls arrived at Multnomah University’s new soccer pitch currently under construction. Crews recently leveled the new athletic field, laid crushed gravel, and fenced in the parameter. Now, many yards of the synthetic playing surface wait to be edged and seamed together.
The school’s new athletics field will host competitive men’s and women’s soccer matches and support expanded student recreational activities. The project brings a regulation-sized soccer field with stadium lights and a scoreboard, allowing Multnomah University to host home games into the evening hours. The University’s Athletics site contains the soccer schedule and indicates that members of the public are welcome to attend home games. Located at 8435 NE Glisan Street, the athletics field is accessible from NE Glisan Street, NE 87th Avenue, and NE Pacific Street.
The Cascade Collegiate Conference has not yet posted the 2022 soccer schedule. However, at the current pace of construction, the university should be ready to host home games this year. Check the University’s Athletics website this summer to see when matches are scheduled in Montavilla and consider attending a home game to show support and enjoy the game.
