Foote Field, located on the University of Alberta’s South Campus, is a multi-use sport training and competition facility, designed for football, track and field and soccer. Opened in 2001 as a legacy of the Edmonton 2001 World Championships in Athletics, the City of Edmonton and the University of Alberta have a joint use agreement in place for the shared use of the fields.
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. It hosts academic classes, intramurals and recreational programming.
