Case Western Reserve University's DiSanto Field is home to the Spartan football, soccer and track & field teams. The 2,400-seat, state-of-the-art facility and surrounding residence hall complex opened in August of 2005. The stadium boasts many distinguishing features, such as its spacious locker rooms, updated press box, field surface and surrounding track. The entire complex was built at a total cost of $126 million.
The setting in which DiSanto Field was built is arguably one of the best in all of NCAA Division III athletics. The field is surrounded by seven residence halls known as the Village at 115th. These student dormitories, built in a horseshoe shape around the field, house around 800 undergraduate students, giving the facility a unique and intimate feel.
The stadium also boasts a modern and spacious press box. The area contains booths designated for both home and away radio as well as a large area for members of the media and school representatives. The coaches’ areas within the box are especially spacious and seat six coaches comfortably. There is also a large president’s suite that is used to host distinguished guests and sponsors or to hold meetings. The press box has wireless high-speed internet access and digital television throughout.
Currently, locker rooms are located adjacent to the field in the lower level of house seven of the dormitory complex along with a modern training room facility, named after Dr. Tom McLaughlin in 2007, which includes both full-size warm and cold whirlpools.
In October of 2013, the university broke ground on Wyant Field House, which will complete the North Campus Residential Village and Athletic Complex. Wyant Field House will serve varsity athletic teams, as well as the students who reside on North Campus. The new facility will include a 5,000-square foot weight training/workout facility; a Varsity Club for studying, tutoring and informal gatherings; a multipurpose space with synthetic flooring; and meeting space for team and student use. Future plans call for the addition of a wing with locker rooms, coaches’ offices, meeting rooms and a training/medical facility.
The field itself is a multifunctional field with a FieldTurf surface surrounded by the eight-lane Coach Bill Sudeck Track, named after the legendary cross country, track and basketball coach in 2008. The field was built in a European box style, allowing a large enough area for soccer contests. Along with hosting varsity football, soccer and track events, the field is used for intramural activities, special events and for the general recreation of the campus community.
