The Long Beach State women's soccer team enters its 18th year of playing all home games at George Allen Field.
Located on the northeast corner of the LBSU campus, George Allen Field was dedicated in August of 1991 after legendary NFL football coach George Allen led the 1990 49er football team to its first winning season in four years, a 6-5 record and an undefeated home record.
Allen coached the Los Angeles Rams from 1966-1970 and the Washington Redskins from 1971-1977, including an appearance in Super Bowl VII. He also coached the Chicago Blitz and the Arizona Wranglers of the United States Football League. A masterful motivational speaker, Allen never had a losing season in 14 years of coaching professional football.
Numerous improvements have been made since women's soccer has called George Allen Field home since its inaugural season in 1998.
In 2011, seven new Musco light towers were installed at George Allen Field that reach a height of 85-feet enabling the 49ers to host night games for the first time in program history. LBSU defeated visiting University of Arizona, 2-1 in a thrilling overtime win in the first official night game for the 49ers at George Allen Field. Also, a new Daktronics scoreboard was installed at the northeast corner of the field, thanks in part to a generous donation made by Patricia Fujimoto in honor of her late husband and longtime LBSU supporter Al Fujimoto.
In 2015, the 49ers drew a record crowd of 2,232 spectators in the season opener versus No. 4 UCLA as the 49ers defeated the Bruins, 1-0. The record crowd supassed the previous mark of 1,304 versus Big West Conference rival UC Irvine in 2012.
