Facilities & Directions

 

Folk Field - 1324 McCormick Rd., West Lafayette IN 47906
Renamed Folk Field in 2016, the Boilermakers were presented with a newly renovated Boilermaker Soccer Complex in the summer of 2012, highlighted by a new building on the west side of the field that houses new locker rooms, team rooms, an athletic training room, sizable press box and roof access for better filming of games. The soccer players' new locker room is a hangout that includes a flat-screen TV with video game inputs, plus a jukebox, magazines, mini-fridge and furniture.

The centrally-located team building and press box houses home and away locker and team meeting rooms as well as concessions and public restrooms. A new grandstand was on the west side of the primary game field. The second-level press area has room for media, radio and television announcers, as well as game-day staff. New black sideboards with gold logos and lettering as well as new dugouts for the players and coaches were installed in the summer of 2016 at the award-winning complex.

Folk Field is believed to be the northern-most field in the country to feature Bermuda grass. It has been honored with four consecutive Fields of Excellence awards by Pioneer Athletics (2013-16) and hosted a Chicago Fire-Indy Eleven friendly in the spring of 2014.

 
 

Mollenkopf Athletic Center - 1225 Northwestern Ave., West Lafayette IN 47906
The Mollenkopf Athletic Center, built in 1990 at a cost of $10.3 million, has a full indoor practice football field plus spacious sidelines - totaling 92,400 square feet - and reaches 86 feet high at the peak. The two-story weight training room covers nearly 14,000 square feet. In 1994, the third floor and the mezzanine were completed, giving Purdue one of the finest facilities in the nation. The completion of the Mollenkopf Center was made possible by Howard R. "Monk" Kissell, Class of 1931, who provided the majority of the $1 million cost.

The original AstroTurf was replaced with FieldTurf in 2006 and again in 2017.
