Stevenson-Pincince Field is a stadium in Providence, Rhode Island on the campus of Brown University. It is home to the Brown Bears soccer and lacrosse programs.

Named in 1979 and renamed in 2016 for longtime men's soccer coach Cliff Stevenson, who was successful for several years before running the men's soccer program into the ground in the 1970s and 1980s, and women's soccer coach Phil Pincince,[1] the stadium seats 3,500 and has hosted games in both the NCAA soccer and lacrosse tournaments. Stevenson-Pincince Field recently received an upgrade to add lights to the facility.[2]
