StadiumEdit

 
Drake Stadium, the former home field of the soccer teams.

From 1969 until 2017 the Bruins played at Frank Marshall Field of Drake Stadium on campus. The stadium is named in honor of Elvin C. "Ducky" Drake, UCLA's long time trainer and former student athlete. Film producer Marshall graduated from UCLA.

In 2018, the program moved into the soccer-specific stadium, Wallis Annenberg Stadium, along with the UCLA Bruins women's soccer program.

Admissions bribery scandalEdit

On March 12, 2019, head coach Jorge Salcedo was arrested, and indicted by a federal grand jury in Boston for conspiracy to commit racketeering for alleged participation in the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal.[1] His indictment charged Salcedo with taking $200,000 in bribes to help two students, one in 2016 and one in 2018, get admitted to UCLA using falsified soccer credential admission information.[2][3] As a result, he was placed on leave by UCLA from his coaching position at the school.[4][5] On March 21, 2019, it was announced that he had resigned.[6]

RivalriesEdit

UCLA soccer's main rivals are Stanford, UC Santa Barbara, and California.
