John Walker Soccer Complex

The John Walker Soccer Complex features a 1, 500-seat grandstand designed to keep fans close to the action and includes a soccer house outfitted with team locker rooms, athletic training facilities, coaches' offices, coaches' lounge, the Red Raider lounge (a public lounge), a team lounge equipped with a state-of-the art video system for film study, a team weight room and an Under Armour equipment room. Players enjoy a "boot room" located immediately inside the facility as a place dedicated to their footwear.

The $5 million facility is the only soccer pitch in the Big 12 Conference equipped with FieldTurf, a mix of synthetic blades of grass supported by an infill of sand and rubber. FieldTurf was the first synthetic turf system to receive FIFA recommended status according to the manufacturer's website. The state-of-the-art playing field surface is currently used at 50 NCAA facilities and 21 NFL stadiums nationwide. Ample outdoor warm up areas are ensured by virtue of a separate practice pitch south of the main complex.

Construction of the soccer complex began in 2006 with the soccer pitch installed in time for the 2008 season and the rest of the facility completed in time for the 2009 campaign. The John Walker Soccer Complex was designed by Parkhill Smith and Cooper, and features an iron entry gate emblazoned with the Double T. The gate, designed by Lars Stanley Metalworks of Austin is part of the university's award-winning public art collection. Lee Lewis Construction served as the contractor for the project.

John Walker is CEO and president of EnerVest Management Partners in Houston. He graduated from Texas Tech University in 1968 with a bachelor of business administration degree in finance.

The Gerald Myers Indoor Soccer Facility

The Texas Tech soccer program officially unveiled the Gerald Myers Indoor Soccer Facility in October 2012.

The facility was completed in 165 days and was constructed over the existing Field Turf practice fields adjacent to the John Walker Soccer Complex. The building is both heated and cooled and is within walking distance of the player's lounge, locker rooms and coaches offices housed within the team field house.

Complete with coaches offices and a player meeting room, the large indoor practice facility also features over 15 Skills King training aids for player use.

The 37, 800 square foot soccer-specific training facility sits directly south of the playing field at the John Walker Soccer Complex, and will provide the Red Raiders a state-of-the-art climate-controlled training facility.

Stadium Naming Rights

The John Walker Soccer Complex was completed in September 2009 and was dedicated on Oct. 2, 2009, after he, his wife, Lisa, and their family contributed $2.25 million toward the project, earning the naming rights.

does Texas tech university have a soccer team? | Yahoo Answers

Yes. Women's Soccer is an official sport. The Men's team is a club sport only. This is the same as any other Big 12 University...
