Pacific Athletics has a proud history of athletic innovation. Pacific continues its entrepreneurial innovation tradition by seeking out and utilizing cutting edge sports performance technology, leading edge tools and fan experience programs located in state-of-the-art facilities. Because student-athletes compete at the highest level both in the classroom and on the field, Pacific aims to provide the best equipment and training grounds to ensure their success.

As part of the Leading with Purpose Campaign, Pacific Athletics is upgrading or renovating the following facilities:

Alex G. Spanos Center:

The Alex G. Spanos Center has served as the home of Tiger basketball, volleyball, and various other sporting events, concerts and community functions for more than 30 years. Although some improvements have been made through the years, the university plans to update and improve the facility significantly over the course of two phases to exceed the expectations of current and future generations of student-athletes and fans.

Soccer Stadium:

The new Pacific Soccer Stadium will include initial seating for 2,500 spectators, lights, fencing, gate access, sound system, scoreboard and press box. After nearly 30 years without a varsity level team, Pacific welcomed back the men’s soccer program in 2014. The inclusion of the stadium as part of the larger athletic complex, which will accommodate both the women’s and men’s soccer teams, adds to the excitement of the revival of the men’s soccer program, will greatly increase both teams’ chances for success competing in the West Coast Conference and is instrumental in Pacific’s ability to recruit top athletes.

Pacific Aquatics Center Renovation:

The remodel of the 4,000 sq ft Pacific Aquatics Center building, located at the Chris Kjeldsen Pool, will provide both the swimming and water polo programs with better support facilities for the student-athletes as well as the recreational swimmers.

The current building houses both team and public locker rooms, showers, coaches’ offices and storage for four teams – men’s and women’s swimming and water polo. The new layout will feature larger team locker rooms, upgraded public locker rooms as well as a new 577 sq ft lounge to be used for team meetings, work space, video analysis and recruiting.
