The new outdoor track stadium will have permanent seating capacity of 500 and will allow Michigan to host home meets again. The indoor track will have a capacity of 2,000 and will feature a 200-meter hydraulic track up to international meet standards, as well as a 300-meter training track (only facility in the country with both tracks).
Adjacent to the indoor track will be a throwing area for student-athletes to practice shot put, javelin, hammer throw, and discus and will be connected to our Performance Center, where the men’s and women’s programs will each have their own Locker Room and Lounge along with their coaches offices.
“The new indoor track facilities are going to help Michigan Track and Field continue to succeed on the national level. Michigan is a school that is known for its top athletic programs, and it’ll be exciting to have facilities that rival the best in the country. My teammates and I can’t wait to train in one of the best facilities in the world and continue to build on the rich traditions here at Michigan.”

“These new facilities are exciting for a few reasons. I am personally excited about having all of our event areas able to compete and practice in one place. Having the ability to host meets will definitely help push our program to a new level of national respect, and bringing in top competition from the rest of the country will only make us better. Though we have proven that we can compete at the highest level without top facilities, our new facilities will definitely make that level of achievement more attainable for myself and my teammates.”
