The College's soccer field, located west of the Knox Bowl, was renovated and named Jorge Prats Field in honor of Dr. Jorge Prats. Prats was professor of modern languages from 1962-2000, coach of the men's and women's varsity soccer programs for more than three decades, and founder of the Knox College study abroad program in Barcelona, Spain.

Renovations of the soccer field were completed in time for the start of the 2007 soccer season. The soccer playing surface was leveled and reseeded. Enhancements to the venue included covered team benches for both teams; the installation of fencing around the field; a state-of-the-art public address system; and new goals. The field features an excellent surface maintained specifically for soccer specifications and a built-in sprinkler system that maintains the integrity of the grass surface during dry summer months. The Soccer Field is used by both the men's and women's soccer teams.
