Returning to Washington State University also means getting back to the stands and cheering on your favorite Cougar sports’ teams. Here are all the on-campus destinations for WSU athletics and what sports you’ll be watching this fall.
Lower Soccer Field
No mystery here. The Lower Soccer Field is where the WSU women's soccer team plays. Located on the east side of campus, the side closest to evolve on Main, it’s less than a mile away from your front door. The Cougars kick off their season Aug. 19 at 7 PM against Arkansas State. Check out the full schedule here. Those benches are pretty hard, so be sure to bring something to sit on.
A block east of the Lower Soccer Field, just past Gibb Pool, is the home of the WSU women’s volleyball team, Bohler Gym. Built in 1928, this 3,000-seat venue is dedicated solely to women’s volleyball. The team is coming off an 11-5 season, so go on out and support a winner. The season kicks off with a game against Colorado on Sept. 22 at 6 PM. See the full schedule here.
Martin Stadium has been home to the Washington State University men’s football team since 1972 and can be seen from both Bohler Gym and the Lower Soccer Field just off Cougar Way. Coming off a shortened four-game season in which they won only a single game, the Crimson and Silver will be looking to bounce back in a big way. Coug football is one of WSU’s oldest traditions. With a stadium filled with over 30,000 screaming fans, now is the time to go if you’ve never attended a game. The first home game of the season is Sept. 4 at 8 PM against Utah State. Check out the full schedule here.
Once you manage to navigate your way to Martin Stadium, then Beasley Coliseum will be a cinch. When you arrive at Martin Stadium, just keep following Cougar Way for about two blocks until you reach NE Stadium Way, then it's right in front of you. Beasley Coliseum has a capacity of 12,058, not much compared to Martin Stadium, but more than enough to make some noise and disrupt the opposing schools – so come on out and be part of the team! Since the WSU men and women's basketball schedules have yet to be announced, stay tuned to the WSU Athletics page for updates.
When you’re not out watching WSU sports, Pullman is packed full of options for activities and entertainment. Take a look at the evolve on Main Neighborhood page to learn more, and be sure to check our other blog posts for more information on where to go and what to do.
