Opened in 1955, Memorial Stadium is the crown jewel of the Bakersfield College Athletics Department; it was the first structure completed on the Panorama Site where the Main Campus resides. After opening, it served as cafeteria, health center, student commons, and anything else the 2,500-strong student body needed.
Now it only serves as the home of Renegade Football, Renegade Soccer, and Renegade Track & Field. It's also an international soccer friendly site.
The 20,000 seat stadium just celebrated it's 60th Anniversary, and is the largest outdoor multi-use stadium between San Jose and Los Angeles.
The track was resurfaced in the Spring of 2016 with state-of-the-art materials by a world-reknowned specialist in competition-grade track rehabilitation.
The new surface will decrease the number of repetitive-use type injuries, and increases the likelihood of state and national level meets returning to Memorial Stadium.
