The Gator lacrosse team plays all its home games at one of the finest collegiate lacrosse stadiums in the nation, the Donald R. Dizney Stadium at the Florida Lacrosse Facility. Since beginning play five years ago, Florida has amassed a home record of 51-5 (.911), including an active winning streak of 24 consecutive regular-season games at home.
A first-class facility for the Gator lacrosse program broke ground in the summer of 2008 and was completed prior to the enrollment of the first Gator lacrosse class in the fall of 2009.
The facility has two lacrosse fields – the Rob Gidel Family Practice Field and the main competition field. Donald R. Dizney Stadium boasts 1,500 seats that run the length of the field, offering fans a great view of the fast-paced sport. Since the lacrosse program has its own facility, they do not have to share practice or game times and are able to accommodate student-athletes schedules.
The complex includes a 12,000 square foot locker facility, which houses locker rooms for the Gators, visiting team, managers and coaches, plus a training room, an equipment room and a conference room. Additionally, the fully accessible grandstand is equipped with concession stands, press box and restrooms.
A practice field for Florida's nationally-ranked soccer team is also a part of the facility. The former Florida soccer practice field, located just north of softball stadium, is now a University of Florida recreation field.
The facility is located at Hull Road and Natural Area Drive, just south of Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium.
