In 2006, Dartmouth broke ground on a new intercollegiate soccer facility for its nationally competitive men's and women's teams after a $4.5 million commitment from Stanley Smoyer '34. Smoyer's gift ensured that the facility would be named in honor of Alden "Whitey" Burnham, a coach and administrator at Dartmouth from 1960-1989, who led the Big Green to its first Ivy League soccer championship in 1964. Smoyer's sons were soccer standouts on Burnham's teams in the 1960s. The facility features a top-quality natural-grass pitch, permanent spectator seating for 1,600, a press box, field lighting, scoreboard and a facility for locker rooms and restrooms.
