OREM, Utah – Utah Valley University will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the new UCCU Stadium on the west side of campus on April 9.

The new soccer stadium was originally announced back in October 2022. There isn’t a timetable for when the facility will be completed at this time.

The $20 million stadium will feature state-of-the-art locker rooms, a team lounge, dedicated spaces for visiting teams and officials, an increased capacity of 3,000 spectators through 400 additional chairback seats and covered plaza seating, an MLS-style press box with broadcast capabilities, a new video board, and 10 luxury suites.

UVU Athletics Director Jared Sumsion spoke on the ceremony and what it means for the University.

“This groundbreaking is a testament to our vision for UVU Athletics and our partnership with UCCU,” said Sumsion. “The new stadium will not only enhance our competitive edge but also create a vibrant hub for community interaction and support.”

Fans, students, alumni, and community members are all invited to attend the ceremony. More details on the stadium and a construction timeline will be announced at the event.

Once completed, the men’s and women’s soccer teams at UVU will call UCCU Stadium home.

The groundbreaking will take place on Tuesday, April 9, at 12:45 p.m. at Clyde Field on the Utah Valley Campus.
