Hayward Field is in the midst of a major facelift. In fact, the historic track and field stadium will be enhanced to the point where the original model will be unrecognizable.
The last event staged at the iconic venue as originally constructed was the 2018 NCAA Track and Field Championships. Now the venue is undergoing renovations as part of an agreement to host the 2021 World Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
Pac-12 Network released a video in remembrance to the historic track and field stadium.
"It's more than just a track."
Anyone's who's been to @OregonTF's Historic Hayward Field knows that Hayward Magic is real.
As the preliminary takedown begins for its renovation, listen to what some legends of the sport say about experiencing the magic themselves. ✨

The finished product of Hayward Field will be the most extravagant track and field stadium in the United States when completed. The future world-class track and field stadium is scheduled to host several high-profile track and field meets.
