The Stanley H. Durwood Soccer Stadium & Recreational Field serves as the official home of the Kangaroos and provides student-athletes, students and community groups with one of the top soccer facilities in WAC and the Midwest. The $9 million dollar addition adds to the growing residential feel of the UMKC campus.
The gift from the Durwood Foundation and its trustees to construct the stadium is another in their long history of support a variety of UMKC initiatives.
DSSRF provides seating for 850 fans along with press suites, a ticket booth, and concession stand, while a separate addition hosts locker rooms for men's and women's soccer, softball and track & field, as well as offices for the respective coaching staffs.
Stanley H. Durwood was one of the University's and the athletic program's most ardent supporters. His affiliation with UMKC began when NCAA Division I participation was a pipe dream. Durwood also helped establish an endowed scholarship for UMKC student-athletes.
In the summer of 2014, National Women's Soccer League member FC Kansas City began playing its home games at the facility, bringing even more people on to the UMKC campus for professional women's soccer.
