The Minnesota Fieldhouse features a refurbished, 200-meter, six-lane track, completed in 2006 by Mondo.

In addition to the track, there is bleacher seating for over 800 people, a press box and areas for athletic training and emergency units. A remodeled lobby area for the Fieldhouse was completed in 2000 and features many of the greats that make up the storied history of both Minnesota men's and women's track and field.

The track is in its 18th season as one of the best indoor surfaces in the Big Ten Conference and served as the site of the 2000 women's Big Ten Championships, at which eight new Fieldhouse records and five new conference meet records were established. In 2002, served as the site of the men's Big Ten Championships.

Over the years, the Fieldhouse has drawn some of the nation's top performers to its meets. Olympians Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Suzy (Favor) Hamilton are among the most well-known athletes who have competed here and adorn the list of venue record holders.

The Bierman Track and Field Stadium is one of the best collegiate facilities in the country. The 400-meter track has 10 48-inch lanes, making it one of the largest tracks in the world.

The complex includes four horizontal jump runways, three pole vault pits, a high jump area, an outside water barrier for the steeplechase, four throwing areas for the discus, two for the javelin and one for the hammer.

The stadium seats 4,000 spectators with the availability of portable bleachers. Spectators have full view of every event inside the stadium.

Since its opening in July of 1990, the stadium has hosted several major events, including the U.S. Olympic Festival in 1990, the 1991 International Special Olympics and the 1992, 1995 and 2003 Big Ten Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
