Veterans Memorial Stadium
Commonly called "The Vet," Veterans Memorial Stadium is home to the Matador football team as well as the El Toro Bowl. The Vet has hosted some great games, including the National Junior Collegiate Athletics Association Championship Game in 2011. This season, the Matadors did not lose at home as the team won 11 games for the second time in team history. The stadium seats 5,000, and when it's rocking, the Matadors have a great home field.
Doesn't matter if it is volleyball or basketball season, "The House" provides a great home court advantage to any Arizona Western team on the court. Located right on the campus of Arizona Western College, "The House" is an intimate setting to take in volleyball or basketball. All seats are close to the action, and cheers ring through the gym. This place is packed for home games, and fans can give the Matador men and women a huge boost.
AWC Soccer Field
The newest home field is the Arizona Western College Soccer Field. The Matador men's and women's soccer teams play on a beautiful green pitch perfect for the fall soccer season. Finished in 2013, the field sits right behind the athletics facility at the crest of the hill. Lights allow the team to play at night, and the team plays before great crowds all throughout the season.
Charlie Dine Softball Field
Dedicated to legendary coach Charlie Dine in the spring of 2014, the "Home of the Lady Matadors" has seen some great softball through the years. Coach Dine led the team to two national championships in the 1980's, and the team has continued to excel. The Lady Matadors are a consistent force in the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference, and the team only lost four games at home in 2014 on the way to a 49-9 record.
Walt Kammann Baseball Field
From pros like Bengie Molina and Sergio Romo to a third place finish at nationals to longtime Matador coaches John Stratten and Jack Watson, Walt Kammann Field is a place filled with great memories. With shaded bleachers that face northeast, fans don't have to worry about a setting sun going through their field of vision.
