Outdoor Venue

In 2022, Asbury University announced the creation of a men’s and women’s intercollegiate track and field program. To support this program and open up additional opportunities for the university and community, Asbury broke ground on January 18, 2023, for phase one of a multi-use Outdoor Venue project.

The $5 million initial phase includes an eight-lane track, turf field, lighting and fencing, located adjacent to the school’s athletics facilities. The university is still actively fundraising for the second phase of the project that will include spectator seating, locker rooms, public restrooms, and a press box/event space that is designed to host other university and public events.

Phase one of the facility is expected to be open near the start of the 2023 fall semester, when the track & field team will begin its season. When phase two is complete, it will be available to host a variety of campus events and activities, including commencement, chapel, and intramurals. The Outdoor Venue will also be available to host youth sports events and community gatherings. 

“We are deeply moved by the generosity and support for this vision to build an outdoor venue that will serve the entire campus community and provide a place for student-athletes, including our new track and field teams, to train and compete,” said Vice President of Athletics & University Communications Mark Whitworth. “God continues to work in the hearts of students at Asbury and this facility will create new opportunities for transformational change to take place. We are humbled and thankful!”

“The outdoor facility will not only help our track athletes train and compete at a high level, but also provide a great venue for Asbury Athletics and the campus community as a whole,” said track and field head coach O’Brian Bridges. “I am thrilled to see this program coming together and can’t wait to see what the future holds for TeamAU track and field.”
