About 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.
