Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex

Jewell of the High Country

Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex (TMSC) opened in September 2008. The complex consists of two 90x130 yard MaxPlay field turf fields, one 60x70 yard grass field, and a field-house consisting of public restrooms, a concession stand, and locker rooms for ASU's soccer teams. TMSC has quickly become a soccer jewel in the High Country.

Long called the "Field of Dreams", Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex was constructed through a three way partnership between High Country Soccer Association, Watauga County, and Appalachian State University. Utilizing land provided by Watauga County, High Country Soccer Association conducted the "Field of Dreams" capital campaign raising $2 million to complete the initial construction phase. Additional resources were provided by ASU, creating the main Stadium Field which the women's soccer program uses as their home field.  HCSA uses the facility as it's home facility hosting all of HCSA's outdoor programs and home matches. The complex is also used by Watauga County Parks and Rec youth soccer program.  The Stadium Field is also used by Appalachian FC, our local NPSL team, as their home field during the summer months.  

Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex played host to the 2011 Southern Conference Championships for men's soccer where Elon defeated UNC-Greensboro 3-2 to claim the conferences automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on November 13, 2011. In 2015, TMSC hosted the Sun Belt Conference Championships for men's soccer where Hartwick defeated Georgia State. The facility has also been utilized by Lees McRae College for regular season games as well as for the Conference Carolina's women's soccer tournament.

The largest crowd in attendance of a match at TMSC was 1,256 on October 19, 2016 when the ASU men lost to Coastal Carolina 2-1 in overtime on the annual "Pack the Mack" night.
