StadiumEdit

 
Drake Stadium was the home field of the soccer teams

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

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

Notable alumniEdit

This list of former players includes those who received international caps, made significant contributions to the team in terms of appearances or goals, or who made significant contributions to the sport after they left. It is clearly not yet complete and all inclusive, and additions and refinements will continue to be made over time.

Another notable Bruin is Mallory Pugh, who played just one season at UCLA before going professional. She is a starting forward on the U.S. women's national team as well as on the Washington Spirit in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL).

Senior forward/defender Hailie Mace graduated in 2019 from UCLA and has already logged three CAPS with the USWNT. Senior midfielder Jessie Fleming is another current Bruin logging time internationally, having earned her first minutes with the Canadian women's national team as a fifteen year old.
