Knights Soccer to have new home field at Portland Adventist Academy

September 5, 2014

In partnership with Portland Adventist Academy (PAA), the Knights’ soccer teams will soon have a new home pitch (aka field).

This field is constructed by FieldTurf, which utilizes the latest technology in artificial playing surfaces.  FieldTurf, a worldwide leader in innovative flooring and sports surface solutions, has provided playing surfaces across the United States including the Portland Timbers Providence Park, CenturyLink Field in Seattle, and Gillette Stadium in New England.

Portland Adventist is building this new synthetic turf field on their campus at 99th and Market Street in east Portland and it will serve as a home facility for both PAA and both WPC soccer teams.

Over the summer, Warner Pacific Athletic Director Jamie Joss documented the progress of the field’s construction. Completion is anticipated in early October 2014.
