I have recently have had the opportunity to visit Eco Park. The environment was special. The field, the sound system, parking concessions, etc., all were very first class. I plan on returning and bringing more teams. We were treated exceptional.
The Taos Eco Park is a world class facility that is truly unique given its high altitude location. Our players raved about the quality of the pitch, and they enjoyed playing in front of a community that clearly appreciates high level soccer. We feel honored to have been able to participate in such a fantastic event. We are sincerely grateful for all the support we were given by the Taos Sports Alliance. We are excited to return to Taos in the very near future!Robin Grossman, Assistant Women's Soccer Coach, U.S. Air Force Academy
Rio Soccer Club has visited the Taos Eco Park the past 2 years to participate in the NCAA Showcase event and the U17 Rwanda National team training camp. These visits have become a highlight on our competitive teams calendars. The players, coaches and parents look forward to the superior playing surface, the professional event management and the outstanding hospitality of the Taos Eco Park staff and the Taos community. The Taos Eco Park events are unique, the players and teams get to experience game day like the pros. First class accommodations, PA announcements, a great playing surface, crowds and post game interviews. Rio Soccer Club looks forward to continuing to visit Taos Eco Park in 2013 and beyond.Chris Cartlidge, Director of Coaching, Rio Soccer Club, Albuquerque, NM
“This is one of the best synthetic fields we have played on at the national level. Smooth, fast, everything you would want. And being that the FIFA Two-Star pitch was designed specifically for high altitude play, it was the perfect spot for training before taking the world stage. We definitely benefited from our time at Taos.”Richard Tardy, Head Coach Rwanda U17 Soccer Team
The highlight of our 2012 Spring Season was taking a road trip to Taos. For most of the team it was the first time to the town of Taos and the players were excited to play at Taos Echo Park. To be able to play a quality game on a quality surface with a good size local crowd watching the game made it a perfect environment for a D-1 college game. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience playing at a top notch facility and look forward to getting an invite to play again next year. Thanks to everyone who made it possible and for those of you who had the vision to build a first class soccer facility.Doug Hill, Head Coach, U.S. Air Force Academy
Taos Eco Park is an incredible facility and setting for top level soccer. The playing surface is world class and the surrounding views are unmatched.
Our players can’t wait for our next match in Taos. The community support of soccer is tremendous and the fans are knowledgeable and appreciative.Jeremy Fishbein, Head Coach UNM Men's Soccer
I recently had a chance to see two matches in the stadium at Taos Eco Park and came away from the experience quite pleased with the setting for high level soccer: the pitch is expansive and boasts a state-of-the-art artificial playing surface; the intimate stadium framed by the mountains provides a great atmosphere for fans and players alike; and the crisp but sunny weather combined with the 7,000-foot altitude of the New Mexico “high desert” ensures ideal training conditions. And it doesn’t hurt that Taos is a fantastic and historic place to visit with plenty of things to do and see.David Downs, NASL Commissioner
