Due to security restrictions in place, only those vehicles driven by someone with a Department of Defense identification card will be able to drive onto the U.S. Naval Academy grounds. Fans without a DoD ID card who are attending soccer games must park outside of the USNA. It is suggested that fans park at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and ride the shuttle bus to and from games. Otherwise they must walk through the security gate and to the stadium.

On Nov. 9, 2001, the United States Naval Academy dedicated the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility.
The $4.5 million Glenn Warner Soccer Facility is a prime example the Naval Academy's commitment to excellence. One of the finest college soccer facilities in the nation, the 16,300-square-foot facility is named after Navy's legendary men's coach Glenn Warner, who guided the Midshipmen to nine NCAA Tournament appearances, four Final Four appearances, one national championship, 28 winning seasons and a record of 243-65-31 during his 30-year tenure. In a stretch from 1962-67, Warner's teams put together a string of 48 regular-season victories without a defeat (70-6-3) and qualified for five-straight NCAA Tournaments. Warner, who produced 26 All-Americans, is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame and is a recipient of soccer's top award, The Honor Award.
The cornerstone of the project is the Anders Hall of Honor, made possible by Maj. General William A. Anders, USAFR, and family, in appreciation of Warner and to recognize the leadership, character and commitment of former Naval Academy soccer players.
The Anders Hall of Honor features 13 trophy cases and display areas of cherry cabinetry that depict Navy's storied soccer history. From former Navy soccer players who achieved excellence in military service and leadership, to past Navy All-Americans and team captains, the "Hall of Honor" pays tribute to former Midshipmen and their military, civilian and athletic accomplishments. The Anders Hall of Honor gives the coaching staff a place to meet, greet and entertain recruits and midshipmen candidates, while experiencing the rich tradition of Navy soccer.
The home team wing highlights Navy's commitment to soccer and the future with two spacious team locker rooms, coaches offices and locker rooms, a fully-equipped training room, laundry and equipment rooms. The 1,300-square-foot men's and women's team locker rooms are equipped with custom-made wooden lockers for each athlete, a video projector and screen for viewing and analyzing of practice and game film. The 375-square-foot training room contains training tables, modern whirlpool, ultrasound and physical therapy equipment, and provides Navy's scholar-athletes with the most complete and advanced treatment in the country.
The visiting team wing of 4,300-square feet contains two spacious locker rooms, officials' locker room, ticket office, public restrooms and a concessions area.
The facility features a120-by-75 yard flat bermuda-grass playing surface and a modern drainage system, allowing the field to withstand heavy rain. A state-of-the-art, scoreboard, funded by the Class of 1983, was erected at one end of the field. The stadium seats approximately 2,500 fans and provides fans with optimal viewing with room for further expansion.
