Anglin Soccer Field

 
Anglin Soccer Field is located on the southwest end of the Milligan campus with a grassy knoll providing a natural observation area along one sideline. The soccer facility as a whole consists of a lighted playing field along with a full-sized, lighted practice/warm-up area (left) behind the teams' benches. Additionally, the men's and women's teams have locker rooms and office space for staff. Current dimensions of the pitch are regulation 118' x 74', although the field has the capability to be expanded to the NAIA's maximum allowable size of 120' x 75'.

While serving the Milligan College soccer programs in its near 40-year existence, Anglin Field has been home to 12 regular season championships teams, six tournament championship teams, and two teams which made an appearance in the national championships.

On an individual basis, both teams have produced a host of players who received special recognition in both the respective conference affiliation and on the national stage. United Soccer League Hall of Famer and All-American Mercy Akide ('99) scored a number of her single-season record 42 goals while competing on the Bermuda grass of Anglin Field.

Milligan soccer also utilizes Johnson City Indoor Soccer's facility (photo below), an off-campus site which gives the Buffaloes full access for training and playing purposes. JC Indoor Soccer is located in Unicoi, Tennessee, roughly five miles from campus.
