USC announces $38 million women’s soccer and lacrosse stadium for 2025

The new "Rawlinson Stadium" will be breaking ground later this year.

LOS ANGELES — Following a $10 million donation from The Fritz B. Burns Foundation, USC President Carol Folt has announced a plan to construct a new “state-of-the-art” soccer and lacrosse stadium for the Women of Troy. The current 24-year-old field, Soni McAlister Field, will be replaced by the brand-new Rawlinson Stadium in the year 2025.

The stadium will feature incredible new amenities and expand upon the existing components on the field. The spectating area will now include a viewing deck and social spaces, and the total capacity will double from 1,000 people to a maximum of 2,500 people. Other new features will include a modern press box, a box office, restrooms, an LED video board, and a stadium-wide audio system.

The stadium is named after the late Los Angeles philanthropist Joseph Rawlinson, whose family are USC alumni and now own the Burns Foundation. They believe this donation is well-deserved due to the many outstanding athletic programs at USC.

Lacrosse head coach Lindsey Munday expressed her gratitude for the support to women’s programs, and soccer head coach Jane Alukonis is extremely excited to see her team playing in “one of the best, most modern stadiums in the country.”

While no PAC-12 teams will have the opportunity to face the Trojans in Rawlinson Stadium, it will be the new home for Big 10 Trojan Lacrosse and Soccer.
