A $30 million world-class indoor track and field facility will be constructed in Louisville’s Russell neighborhood at the 24-acre Heritage West site. The Louisville Urban League and the city of Louisville are partnering to create the 4,000-seat facility that’s expected to attract 20,000 to 30,000 people each year.

“The Urban League’s plan reflects the community’s desire for a project that will bring immediate life to this key piece of land and provide healthy outlets for youth and adults to engage in a variety of sports and other activities. It will support local business and create jobs for local residents,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

By opening the facility, the city of Louisville and the Urban League hope to bring in major track and field events, as well as serving local colleges and area high school and club teams.

No construction timeline has been given, but Louisville Urban League CEO Sadiqa Reynolds expressed a desire to open the facility in 2020.
