The department says the NCAA chose the venue for the Outdoor Track and Field Championships from 2015-2021.
“We are excited that Hayward Field will remain the dream destination for every Division I athlete and we plan to turn the NCAA Championships into the hottest ticket in the sport,” said University of Oregon Senior Associate Athletic Director and President of TrackTown USA Vin Lananna in a press release Wednesday. “It took a remarkable partnership of entities from not only from the Eugene-Springfield community, but the entire State of Oregon to make this commitment to the sport of track and field.”
Eugene had been previously selected to host the national meet in 2014.
The UO Athletic Department says the announcement means that Eugene will be the home of more NCAA meets than any other city in the United States.
