Gettler Stadium is the home for both the University of Cincinnati men's and women's soccer teams, as well as the men's and women's outdoor track and field teams.
In the summer of 2012, the playing surface at Gettler Stadium was replaced with FieldTurf Revolution. The new, top-of-the-line monofilament surface offers the traditional FieldTurf surface, but with more of a soccer blend that incorporates longer and thicker blades of artificial grass compared to those used for football.
The facility was renovated following the 2002-03 academic year and was named in recognition of the gift by Ben and Dee Gettler to the Richard E. Lindner Varsity Village.
The restorations included a regulation-sized soccer field with a FieldTurf Pro playing surface, which is sanctioned by FIFA, the international governing body of soccer, for all levels of play except the World Cup finals and semifinals.
The upgrades also included a new eight-lane, 400-meter track, permanent grandstand seating for 1,400, concession stands and restrooms, team rooms and a press box. These enhancements allowed Cincinnati to host the 2010 BIG EAST Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
Prior to the renovations made possible by the Gettlers, the facility also had a facelift in 2000 that saw the installation of new lights and a new scoreboard with message center.
