Frock Field is home to Catawba men's and women's soccer programs. It is named for the late E.B. Frock of Hanover, Pa., a 1933 graduate of Catawba and former trustee. The men have played on the field since 1985 and the women since their inception in 1990. The men posted a 19-match home winning streak from 1990-91 and the women once won 22 straight from 2006-09.
Frock Field was the site of five NAIA District 26 Championship matches and a pair of NAIA Area 8 playoffs. Catawba went 4-1 in the district finals at home. Catawba has also hosted a pair of South Atlantic Conference men's tournaments and two SAC women's tournaments.
Seating capacity for Frock Field is around 500, but can accommodate ample standing room space. The largest crowd to see a Catawba home soccer match came on October 15, 1986 when the Indians hosted the University of North Carolina in front of an estimated 1,000 spectators. UNC won the match 2-0.
In 2014, a new and improved soccer stadium was completed, featuring new bleachers with better views and handicapped access and seating, new sidewalks, new team bench areas, a new scoreboard, and a new, second level press box with wi-fi access for sports information staff. Other improvements include new fencing and a new windscreen with custom graphics, as well as a brick patio area that can display commemorative bricks to honor alumni and friends.
