Monterey Bay FC will play on the campus of California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB). The club is privately investing millions to upgrade existing facilities, including the renovation of the Freeman Field on the historic campus.
Freeman Field was originally home to Fort Ord Warriors, a semi-pro football team made up of service members. It currently serves as the site for CSUMB commencements (prior to COVID19). It will continue to be a shared use facility in a private-public partnership between the CSUMB and Monterey Bay FC.
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.
Capacity: Approximately 6,000
Completion Date: March 2022
