The new outdoor track and field stadium at the University of Minnesota will give the Golden Gopher programs their first opportunities in more than 15 years to host home meets, including Big Ten and NCAA competition. Located in the heart of the new Athletes Village area, this facility will become synonymous with track and field excellence in the Midwest. It will not only provide a first-class experience for the young men and women who compete for Minnesota, it will provide Minnesota high schools with a venue for state meets and USA Track and Field with a Minnesota option for placing its marquee events.
For much of the last 15 years, our young men and women haven’t had a competition-caliber track and field facility to call home. The lack of a facility has negatively impacted the program, forcing our student-athletes to travel all over the Twin-Cities to train and compete.
The new home of Gopher Track and Field will feature a 9-lane track, the ability to host all field events and the steeplechase, warm-up and cool down areas, and grandstands capable of hosting B1G and regional championships.
