Hayward Field

Both athletes and fans consider the University of Oregon's Hayward Field as a cherished destination for track and field. This is the heart & home of track & field - where records are set and legends are born. 

The newly reimagined stadium seating has a capacity of 12,500 seats with temporary seating up to 30,000. The stadium offers an open and airy design - every seat has a view of the action. It is truly a marvel of design and a celebration of both the athlete and the track fan.

A dramatic nine-story tower shaped like a torch features depictions of some of our greats— coach Bill Bowerman, Steve "Pre" Prefontaine, Raevyn Rogers, Ashton Eaton and Otis Davis.

There is also a 4,000-square-foot museum in Hayward Hall at the base of the tower showcasing the history of TrackTown USA and the people who have made it so special. This impressive, detailed and thoughtful exhibit includes interactive components, a short film, a selfie station and artistic re-purposing of salvaged green wood from the former stadium stands. This is a worthy visit for any track enthusiast.
