Cobb Stadium serves as home to the University of Miami’s women’s soccer and men’s and women’s track and field programs. Cobb features a state-of-the-art, full size soccer playing field centered inside an eight-lane top of the line rubber track. In addition, a first-class, 500-seat stadium grandstand stands at midfield for optimal viewing for fans, parents, and students. Leading to and from the seating area is two ramped walkways to maximize convenience for all Hurricane patrons. Four massive light banks surround the field to make dusk or night games a reality on the University of Miami campus — the pride of Coral Gables. Cobb Stadium recently hosted the 2018 ACC Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
“Having a facility like Cobb Stadium is a tremendous boost to our program,” said Director of Track and Field and Cross Country Amy Deem.
Located adjacent to the Hecht Athletic Center, the facility is named after the Ambassador and Mrs. Charles E. Cobb. The Cobb family donated the leadership gift for the reconstruction and expansion of the University track and the construction of the new soccer field. Ground was broken for Cobb Stadium on April 21, 1998 with its completion occurring during the fall. In addition to providing a first-class facility for the Hurricane women’s soccer and track and field programs, the stadium is available to host soccer and track and field events for school and youth groups within the local community.
