The first meet in the rebuilt Hayward Field will be the 2020 Pac-12 Track & Field Championships, Oregon announced on Tuesday.

Under construction since last summer, Hayward Field will reopen for the conference meet scheduled for May 15-16 of next year. The Pac-12 combined events meet will be held in Corvallis the previous weekend.

Oregon coach Robert Johnson released a statement that said: "Hosting the Pac-12 Championships will be a fantastic way to re-introduce the world to Hayward Field. It's an exciting announcement for our program and very fitting that the first event in our new yet still legendary facility will feature some of the top student-athletes in the NCAA.

"Hayward Field has a long-running tradition of hosting world-class meets and attracting big crowds, and with the level of the sport in the Pac-12 Conference, this meet should be no different."

Hayward Field was leveled in the weeks following the 2018 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships last June and the reconstruction started almost immediately on a new 12,500-seat stadium, which will also host the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials and the 2021 IAAF World Outdoor Championships.

The NCAA Outdoor Championships, held at Hayward Field every year between 2013-18, are taking place in Austin, Texas, this year and next before returning to Hayward Field in 2021.

The Prefontaine Classic Diamond League meet, moved to Stanford, Calif., this year, is also expected to return to its traditional home at Hayward Field next summer.

The 2020 Pac-12 Championships will mark the 10th time the conference meet has been held at Hayward Field, and fifth time in 15 years. The last was 2017 when Oregon stepped in for Oregon State, which was scheduled to host the meet but didn't have the facilities to do so.

The Oregon men have won 13 straight Pac-12 titles. The Duck women have finished second to USC the last two years after winning nine straight titles.
