W. Dennie Spry Soccer Stadium

Spry Soccer Stadium

Winston-Salem, NC


Opened in 1996, W. Dennie Spry Soccer Stadium is home to the Wake Forest men's and women's soccer programs. Considered one of the top soccer facilities in the country, the 3,000-seat stadium is considered a jewel in Wake Forest's family of athletic facilities and gives the Demon Deacons a true home field advantage.

Recent upgrades to the facility have included a new video board, new natural grass pitch and renovated locker rooms. 

The Spry Stadium complex features a fully-lit natural grass playing field along with two lit natural grass practice fields. The facility also includes a state-of-the-art scoreboard and sound system, locker rooms for both the men's and women's teams, a pressbox with rooftop observation deck and concession stands.

The Deacons regularly play in front of packed crowds, as the campus and local communities support the men's and women's teams. A strong contingent of students can always be found on the hill overlooking the north side of the stadium.

The Wake Forest men's soccer team has ranked in the top five nationally in attendance each year since 2015, when they led the nation with a season total of 46,248. 

Spry Stadium has also hosted several major soccer events. The ACC Tournament has been contested four times at Spry: the women's tournament was held there in 1997, while the men's event was held at the venue for three straight years from 1998-2000.

The men's soccer team has also hosted 39 NCAA Men's Soccer Championship matches over the last 22 seasons. During the 2020 NCAA Men's Soccer Championship, Spry Stadium was also the host site for neutral site matches. 

In March 2001, Spry Stadium hosted a Major League Soccer exhibition match between the Miami Fusion and D.C. United and an exhibition match between Wake Forest and the United States U-17 National Team.

The facility is named in honor of W. Dennie Spry, a retired partner in the Winston-Salem law firm of Allman Spry Davis Leggett & Crumpler, P.A.
