Monterey Bay FC will play at Cardinale Stadium on the campus of California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB). The stadium will be a shared-use facility. It will serve as the home pitch for Monterey Bay F.C., as well as a place to showcase CSUMB teams and games, and will continue to serve as a place to gather for graduation, festivals and events. Monterey Bay F.C. is privately investing over $11 million in renovations to the existing stadium and facilities on the campus of CSUMB –previous home field to the Fort Ord Warriors, a former semi-pro American Football team comprised of military service members. More recently, the stadium has been used for CSUMB graduation prior to COVID19.
The CSUMB campus sits in the middle of the Monterey Peninsula, which features the coastal communities of Marina, Pacific Grove, Monterey, Seaside, Carmel and the Salinas Valley, and is less than a mile from the beach. Formerly the site of the decommissioned Army base Fort Ord, the site has undergone a transformation into a state-of-the-art campus that is also home to The Panetta Institute for Public Policy.
