The renovated field quickly established itself as a premier field hockey venue by hosting the 2015 NCAA National Championships. Built of the same red brick as Glick Field house it is deftly woven into the fabric of the University of Michigan Athletic Campus. Located south of the football practice fields and north of Stadium Blvd., the project included the replacement of the existing South Ferry Field Locker Rooms, the construction of a new 1,500-seat grandstand | ticket | concession | restroom building and new turf on the historic Ocker Field.
