The Tennessee Volunteers women's soccer team represents the University of Tennessee (UT) in Knoxville, Tennessee in NCAA Division I women's soccer competition as a member of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).

Along with all other UT women's sports teams, it used the nickname "Lady Volunteers" (or the short form "Lady Vols") until the 2015–16 school year, when the school dropped the "Lady" prefix from the nicknames of all women's teams except in basketball.[2]


The University of Tennessee began sponsoring women's soccer in 1996 with Charlie MacCabe as head coach. Coach MacCabe was replaced by former North Carolina Tar Heel All-American Angela Kelly in 2000. Coach Kelly had taken the Lady Vols to four SEC Tournament championships and to the NCAA Tournament eight times.[3] Following the 2011 season coach Kelly would leave the program to take over the head coaching job at Texas. Shortly after her departure Brian Pensky was named the 3rd head coach for the Lady Vols soccer team.[4]

Regal Stadium[edit]

Dedicated in 2007, Regal Soccer Stadium was built around the old Tennessee Soccer Complex. The new stadium seats 3,000 people and is named after Regal Entertainment Group, the main financial backer for its construction.[5]
