Yurcak Field is a 5,000 seat soccer-specific stadium on the main campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway Township, New Jersey, United States. Fully acknowledged as The Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium at Yurcak Field, it is named in honor of Ronald N. Yurcak, a 1965 All-American Rutgers Lacrosse player.[1] The stadium is the official home of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights men's and women's soccer teams and Sky Blue FC of the National Women's Soccer League, and was the home of the Rutgers men's and women's lacrosse teams from 1994 until 2013 when the Scarlet Knights' lacrosse teams moved to High Point Solutions Stadium.

The facility has hosted the Division II & III NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship games in 1998, 2001, and 2002. It was also the home the New Jersey Pride of Major League Lacrosse from 2006 through 2008.
