A generous gift of 23 acres of land by Newberg philanthropists Ken and Joan Austin made possible an expansion of George Fox University's athletic facilities with the creation of the Austin Sports Complex, home to the Bruin men's and women's soccer teams since 2010 and the women's lacrosse team since the program's start in the spring of 2014.
The soccer/lacrosse field was completed in time for the 2010 fall soccer campaigns. The synthetic turf field features a regulation-size soccer configuration of 75 yards (68.58m) by 110 yards (100m), while the lacrosse field is 60 yards (55 m) by 110 yards (100 m). Bleacher seating for 750 is located on the north side of the field, with team benches and a press box on the south side. A concessions stand, restrooms, storage rooms, and an athletic training room are located at the southwest corner of the field.
Plans originally called for construction of the football stadium on the site in time for the return of football in 2014. The university instead opted to build the stadium, named Stoffer Family Stadium, on campus. The stadium and the Duke Athletic Center are situated adjacent to the Wheeler Sports Center and serve as home to the school's football and track and field programs.
The Austin Sports Complex is located at 1953 N Center St., Newberg, OR 97132, and is bordered by Villa Road to the east, Crestview Drive to the south, Center Street to the west, and the Joan Austin Elementary School and Newberg Christian Church properties to the north.
On-site parking is available, and agreements have been made with nearby Joan Austin Elementary School, Newberg Christian Church and Northside Community Church to accommodate additional parking.
Finally, a soft-surface path circles the perimeter of the complex for running, walking and jogging.
