Facilities and Directions
The new soccer stadium at Rhodes Field was dedicated at Homecoming on Nov. 2, 2002. Through the generosity of several alumni, Rhodes Field now has a beautiful brick facade with elevated spectator seating for 650 and the Rapaport Family Suite for alumni events.
In addition to being the game field for the Penn men's and women's soccer teams, Rhodes Field has become a primary practice destination for professional and international teams in recent years. In the summer of 2011, the United States trained at Rhodes in preparation for its international friendly with Mexico, and several Major League Soccer teams have used the facility when in town to play the Philadelphia Union.
The 2005 season marked the return of nighttime soccer to Penn, as lights were installed at Rhodes Field. The addition greatly enhanced the atmosphere of games, as the Quakers hosted packed crowds for night games. The installation of the floodlights were made possible by the generosity of Marc Rapaport W’79.
The most recent renovation took place in the summer of 2013, when the entire field was moved about 30 yards south. New bench areas were put in for both teams, and the game operations area was expanded to take into account television and marketing efforts. The field also was highlighted by the addition of a new video board that is used for time/score, highlights and statistics.
Set in the shadow the Philadelphia skyline along the West bank of the Schuylkill River, Rhodes Field is easy to walk to from the Penn campus, as well as drive to from various highways.
Penn Park is 24 acres of athletic fields and open space located to the east ofPenn's academic campus. The program of the University's Department of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics includes 2 synthetic turf athletic fields, the Dunning-Cohen Champions Field with a seasonal air structure and the James "Ace", Adams Field, a multi-purpose stadium and the 12-court Hamlin Tennis Center.
South Field is an informal, natural grass playing field. A surface parking lot occupies the area closest to Lower Walnut Street. Raised landforms support a circulation system of pathways leading to pedestrian bridges that link Penn Park to Walnut Street, the River Fields across the Weave Bridge, and the main campus, via the Goldie Paley Bridge at Franklin Field.
