Sundays are “Dog Days” at all home matches this year for Old Dominion women’s soccer. The Sunday Dog Days promotion will allow fans to bring their dogs, on a leash, to any soccer match that takes place on a Sunday. There is no charge for bringing a dog. 

During soccer games, dogs will be allowed on the grass area on the south and east sides of the ODU Soccer Complex. For field hockey, fans can utilize the grass area near the concession stand. In addition, ODU Athletics will set up bowls of water around each facility to make sure your pets stay hydrated during the sporting event.
