Austin Sports Complex

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. Women's lacrosse will begin play on the combination soccer/lacrosse field in the spring of 2013.

A combined $1.2 million lead gift from Brad and Katharine Stoffer and their Boedecker Foundation was received in the summer of 2009, the second major gift (after the land donation) toward the $6.5 million project. A $250,000 matching grant was given to the school by an anonymous Newberg family in October of 2009, which the university matched with other gifts in the summer of 2010. Another gift of $300,000 was given by Pacific Fibre Products of Longview, Wash., in the spring of 2010.

Most recently, a $2.5 million donation - one of the largest single cash gifts ever given to the university - was made by philanthopists Marilyn and John Duke in August of 2011. The gift will be applied toward construction costs of the athletic center at the soon-to-be-built football stadium on campus.

The soccer/lacrosse field was completed in time for the 2010 fall 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 Stoffer Family Stadium on the site in time for the return of football in 2014. The university has since opted to build the stadium, along with the Duke-sponsored athletic center, on campus. The stadium will be situated near the current track and field facility.

The Austin Sports Complex is officially located at 1013 Crestview Drive, Newberg, OR 97132, and is bordered by Villa Rd. to the east, Crestview Dr. to the south, Center St. 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 will circle the perimeter of the complex for running, walking and jogging.
