The Van Andel Soccer Stadium, home of Hope College’s men’s and women’s soccer teams, joined Hope’s other signature facilities in 2009 as one of the finest soccer stadiums in the nation for a college of Hope’s size.

Funded by a leadership gift from David ’83 and Carol ’81 Van Andel, as well as contributions from friends of Hope, the stadium not only serves the college but provides a first-rate facility for the entire Holland sports and recreation community, including being used to host MHSAA soccer tournament games.

The world-class, state-of-the-art facility seats 1,400 fans and includes two locker rooms, training and meeting rooms, a concession stand, and a press box. It also features artificial turf and lighting for night games.
