Willison Field, earlier known as Seagram Field, was revitalized in 2006. The $1.85 million dollar project was funded by donations from the Wilfrid Laurier Alumni Association, Wilfrid Laurier Univesity Students' Union, the family of John Cleghorn, and other corporate and individual donors. Improvements included artificial turf, updated drainage, and amphitheater style seating. It was renamed Alumni Field to recognize alumni support.

The University is located in Waterloo, Ontario. It began in 1911 as the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada. In 1924 Waterloo College was established, providing courses in post-secondary education. In 1960 Waterloo College became Waterloo Lutheran University, and in 1973 changed its name to Wilfrid Laurier University. Laurier Brantford opened in 1999.
