It was recently renovated, in 2012, which expanded the stadium’s capacity and also added suites for visitors and locker rooms for the teams. Besides the stadium, the WakeMed complex also features two match only fields and five general fields, as well as concessions and a cross country course. The fields may be rented out to soccer teams as well as football, ultimate Frisbee and lacrosse teams.
