About Us

Foote Field

Foote Field a multi-sport facility named for its benefactor, Eldon Foote, University of Alberta alumnus, philanthropist and businessman, who had, during his lifetime, a great love of track and field sports in which he also competed and excelled. Mr. Foote donated $2 million towards the construction of the sports complex named in his honour.

It is the home of the University of Alberta’s high-performance sport teams, the Golden Bears and Pandas,  in track and field, football, soccer and rugby.

The Canadian Athletics Coaching Centre, a research centre affiliated with the Faculty, is housed at Foote Field. Lead by Dr. Jim Denison, the Centre is a legacy of the 2001 World Championships in Athletics, and is the hub for coaching education in Canada.
