Best College Lacrosse Stadiums: Who Has The Best View?

The upcoming college lacrosse season got us thinking… what are some of the best college lacrosse stadiums to take in a game at?

We decided to put a list together of some of the most scenic places to attend a college lacrosse game.

The criteria?

We are selecting venues for this list solely on the basis of the view from the bleachers. Majestic sunsets are taken into consideration for bonus points. Indoor facilities will not be counted — yes, that includes the Carrier Dome. The Carrier Dome is obviously one of the best college lacrosse stadiums in terms of history, fan support and overall experience, but I’ll be honest… it’s not exactly the prettiest thing to look at from the inside (Note: Ryan Conwell may not be on speaking terms with me after this, but I would like to clarify that there is no bad blood here!).

Case in point:

Maybe it would look nicer if they painted a mural on the roof? Put me in touch with the Syracuse AD and I could provide some suggestions… maybe a Haudenosaunee flag or a mural of Jim Brown? I can picture a painting of former Syracuse lacrosse stars reaching out to Jim Brown, much like in Michaelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.

If they value a spot on this list then it’s the least they could do.

Anyways…

Here are some of our favorite views from some of the best college lacrosse stadiums, in no particular order. Know of a stadium that we missed that should be on this list? Let us hear about it in the comments or on social media. Please include pictures so that we may appreciate your favorite stadium.

The Stadium At South Field – Brigham Young University (MCLA DI)

Ok, so the BYU Lacrosse team didn’t actually play here last year. They played their home games at the BYU West Stadium @ Provo Field, but due to the fact that I had a much harder time finding a photo from that stadium, this one will suffice. The fields are only a few blocks from each other, and the same captivating mountain backdrop is visible from across the entire BYU campus. Wherever they play on campus, it’s definitely one of the better views in college lacrosse.

Central Garage Field – University of Utah (NCAA DI)

Technically, this is just the Utes’ practice field. The stadium that they will share with the women’s soccer team has completed its first phase, with a second construction phase beginning later that will include locker rooms and other upgrades. Below are photos of the practice field and a few from the soccer/lacrosse stadium thus far.
