EUGENE, Ore. --- University of Oregon officials are reassuring track and field fans after a report released on Tuesday claimed the construction of the new Hayward Field could be pushed back affecting the Ducks home schedule for 2020. 

Communications Director Zack Barnett said construction is on track for the new field to open in spring 2020.

"We're anticipating completion in time for every major event that we have planned in 2020," Barnett said. "There haven't been any changes to what was planned earlier."
