Beginning with the 1998 season, the USC women's soccer team no longer had to share a practice field with the football team, as the Women of Troy received a field all their own. Thanks to a $150,000 donation from Hobart and Soni McAlister, a new field was built on the corner of 30th and Hoover. During the 2000 season, a permanent scoreboard was installed.
USC boasts an 21-7-4 (.719) record at McAlister Field and the 2002 season represented the first time that every game was played at the facility. In past seasons, some games were played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
"Having McAlister Field is a huge boost for our program," USC head coach Jim Millinder said. "We have the flexibility to practice whenever we want. As a result, our players are able to work out more often and at more convenient times. We are also practicing on a regulation soccer field, instead of a football field as was the case in the past, which is a big asset. It gives our program a new dimension."
