Albert–Daly Field is a soccer-specific and multi-use sports facility located in Williamsburg, Virginia on the campus of the College of William and Mary. It is home to the soccer and lacrosse teams for the College.

The facility was paid for thanks in large part to a sizable challenge grant made by Jim and Bobbie Ukrop. The Ukrops suggested that the field be named in honor of long time soccer coaches Al Albert and John Daly. Opened in 2004, the original venue consisted of a natural grass playing surface, lighting, and temporary bleacher seating.[1] In 2010, the College broke ground on a new 1,000-seat spectator pavilion at Albert–Daly Field. The structure, Martin Family Stadium, is named in honor of Eff and Patty Martin, and their children. In addition to spectator seating, the building boasts a state-of-the-art press box, filming positions, and restroom facilities. The project will be completed in the spring of 2011.[needs update][1][2]
