Ellis Field, formerly known as Aggie Soccer Stadium is a soccer-specific stadium located in College Station, Texas, USA on the campus of Texas A&M University. It has been home to the Texas A&M (women's) soccer team since 1994.

The stadium hosted the 2005, 2007, and 2009 NCAA Women's College Cup.

The stadium hosted the Houston Dynamo home matches in the 2007 CONCACAF Champions' Cup and 2011 U.S. Open Cup qualification.

The stadium completed a $1 million renovation in 2011 that includes added seats to the West stands of the stadium and "party decks" on the top of the East stands. Other additions include new restroom facilities on the West side and permanent stands added to the South side. In the future, a complete roof structure will be added to the stadium.[1]

The stadium currently holds the NCAA single game attendance record of 8,204 in a matchup against rival North Carolina on August 25, 2006.
