The 2011 season marked the seventh year the Hawkeyes have played on the new Grant Field. Grant Field is one of the finest facilities in the nation with a state-of-the-art playing surface, permanent grandstand, concessions, rest rooms and a press box.

Whether playing on the new Grant Field, or on the original facility that was introduced in 1989, opponents have usually left Iowa City unhappy.

The Hawkeyes own an overall home record of 133-42, a conference record of 59-23 at home and an 11-2 record in NCAA Tournament games played in Iowa City.

Originally named the Hawkeye Field Hockey Field, the facility was renamed in honor of former University of Iowa Women's Athletics Director and founder of Iowa Field Hockey Dr. Christine Grant on Sept. 22, 1991. The new field was re-dedicated on Oct. 8, 2006.

The Hawkeyes set a home attendance record Oct. 24, 1993 with 1,339 fans watching Iowa defeat No. 4 Penn State, 4-0.

Iowa has gone undefeated on its home field in six separate seasons, including a 40-game home winning streak.
