ICC Soccer Complex

Home to the men's and women's soccer teams since 2004, the Itawamba Community College Soccer Complex gives the Indians and Lady Indians one of the finest playing surfaces in the MACJC. Located on the west side of the ICC Fulton campus, the facility is situated near the College's baseball and football venues. It joins the Davis Event Center (basketball), Crubaugh Field (baseball), Eaton Field (football), the softball field and tennis courts to give Itawamba Community College one of the finest groups of athletic facilities for a community college not only in Mississippi, but in the entire southeastern United States.

The soccer complex features a grandstand area which will accommodate nearly 75 people with opportunities for expansion in the future. There is also a large shaded area for lawn chair seating on the east side of the field, which is perfect for those extremely warm early season showdowns. Also included is a training field that was built in 2007, adjacent to the soccer field, which is a smaller practice field that is ideal for pre-game warm-ups, especially during the first game of the doubleheader.

The complex also includes an electronic scoreboard and a three-story tower equipped with a video deck for recording games. Hailed by the other coaches and players in the league as one of the top facilities in the MACJC, the field stretches 120 yards long, 80 yards wide and features a tifway 419 hybrid Bermuda grass from Clifton, Georgia, making it one of the finest playing surfaces in the south. A grounds crew, supervised by ICC Athletic Fields' Supervisor  Kirk Sheffield, is responsible for the field maintenance of the ICC Soccer Complex.

The ICC locker room facilities are located in the Davis Event Center to give ICC's soccer facilities a championship feel.
