Home to UCLA’s soccer, and track and field teams, Drake Stadium is also where the Geffen Academy Cross Country and Track & Field teams train and compete. The grass infield of Drake Stadium is named Marshall Field.
Widely considered one of the finest playing surfaces in the country, Marshall Field is a 75-yard by 120-yard soccer surface. The track has been converted from a conventional American 400-yard eight-lane oval with a 106-degree radius turn to a new European 400-meter nine-lane (48″ width lane) with a 136 degree radius on the turn.
The stadium provides seating for 11,700 spectators. It is named after UCLA track legend Elvin C. “Ducky” Drake, who was a student-athlete, track coach and athletic trainer for over 60 years.
