Dear Citizens of TrackTown USA,
Iâ€™m thrilled to announce that Historic Hayward Field will be the home of the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships for the next eight years.
On Wednesday, the NCAA awarded the meet to TrackTown USA from 2015 to 2021.
The 2014 NCAA Championships, of course, were already slated to be held at Hayward Field, making it the ultimate destination for Division I track and field athletes into the next decade.
We plan to turn the NCAA Championships into the hottest ticket in the sport of track and field. It took a remarkable partnership of entities from not only the Eugene-Springfield community, but the entire state of Oregon, to make this commitment to the sport.
By bringing the NCAA meets to the Eugene-Springfield communities through 2021, it ensures that an unprecedented list of high-caliber events will be coming to Oregon for the next decade.
In July, the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships welcomes the worldâ€™s best track and field athletes under the age of 20 to Hayward Field, followed by the 2015 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships and the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials.
We hope that youâ€™ll share in our enthusiasm for this amazing opportunity for the sport of track and field.
