A 1994 IU Hall of Fame Inductee, Bill Armstrong won a baseball letter in 1940.Â He served as Executive Director and President of the IU Foundation from 1952-83 and as a fundraiser and Athletic Department consultant.Â Bill was instrumental in starting the Little 500 Bicycle Race and helped Jerry Yeagley establish men's soccer as varsity sport.
Indiana Soccer Campâ€™s commitment to excellence is evident by the facilities it provides to its participants. Jerry Yeagley Field at Bill Armstrong Stadium is the permanent home of the IU soccer program and is used for matches between the more advanced participants. The complex is the finest college facility in the nation.
"Without Bill Armstrong, we wouldn't have the soccer program we have today," former Hoosier head coach Jerry Yeagley said. "Bill made it all possible to not only be a varsity sport, but to also be a championship-caliber program. Bill was like my big brother. Whenever I was having a bad day, I would go see Bill and he would always point out the silver lining. "
Armstrong Stadium served as the site of the first-ever Big Ten Conference Soccer Tournament in 1991. The Big Ten Tournament also was held at Bill Armstrong Stadium in 1992, 1997, 2003 and most recently in 2009. IU took home the championship in the first four tournaments that were played at Armstrong Stadium.
