Arena / Stadium · Tourist Spot
Hayward Field is a historic track and field stadium in the northwest United States, located on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Nearly a century in age, it has been the home of the university's track and field teams since 1921, and was the on-campus home of the varsity football team from 1919 through 1966.
Hayward Field was named after track coach Bill Hayward (1868–1947), who ran the Ducks' program from 1904 to 1947. Renovated in 2004, it is one of only five International Association of Athletics Federations Class 1 certified tracks in the United States (along with Hutsell-Rosen Track, Icahn Stadium, John McDonnell Field, and Rock Chalk Park). The elevation of Hayward Field is approximately 420 feet (130 m) above sea level and its infield has a conventional north-south orientation. The Pacific Ocean is approximately fifty miles (80 km) to the west, separated by the Coast Range.

In 2018, the stadium was demolished and will be rebuilt on the same site. Expected to reopen in 2020, the new stadium is financed by UO's philanthropic community, with alumnus Phil Knight as the main donor.

  • I was here working on the new field. It is absolutely amazing!!! No expense spared, it is gonna be beautiful.
  • Hayward was the best, but they demolished it to put in a new, Olympic level track. I'm sure the new one will be nice, but Historic Hayward will always have a special spot in the eugene community's heart
