The University of Maryland track and field teams train at one of the top on-campus facilities in the Baltimore-Washington region, the Kehoe Track and Field Complex.

Located directly adjacent to Parking Lot 1 and close to the University Boulevard entrance to campus, the facility also surrounds Ludwig Field, the home of Terrapin soccer.

With a capacity of 4,500 fans, the complex is named for longtime Maryland athletics director, track coach and sprinter Jim Kehoe, who is a member of the United States Track Coaches Hall of Fame. Kehoe was part of the College Park campus for 39 years, beginning as an athlete and ending with his retirement from the athletics-director spot in 1978.

As an athlete, his half-mile mark of 1:50.7 remained unbroken for 23 years. He graduated from the university in 1940. During his time as the Maryland track and field coach, Terrapin teams won 48 Southern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference titles.


Since its opening in 1995, state-of-the-art Ludwig Field has been the home of the Terrapin men's and women's soccer teams as well as playing host to numerous other local soccer events throughout the past 10 years.

Due to the expanding horizon of Terrapin soccer and the growing interest in its achievement on the field, the University of Maryland embarked on a project that would bring the level of the facility on par with the excellence of the programs that played there.

The $2.5 million facility was dedicated on Sept. 16, 1995, and is surely a cornerstone of collegiate soccer throughout the nation.

The 4,500-seat facility is an integral part of the more than $40 million of new construction for Maryland athletics. The complex is fully lighted with an all-weather track and sodded Bermuda grass playing field. In 2004, a new state-of-the-art scoreboard with in-game statistics and lively graphics was installed.

The permanent lights allow for commonly scheduled night games. The lights also allow Maryland the ability to host NCAA and Atlantic Coast Conference tournaments and nationally televised games. Since its opening, Ludwig Field has played host to 21 NCAA Tournament games, including 11 Maryland wins in the tournament in the last three years. Those wins allowed the Terps to make four consecutive College Cup appearances.

More and more fans have come out to watch Maryland in record numbers over the past few seasons. Last season, the Terps set a school record in attendance with over 40,000 people. The total ranked second in the NCAA, and the Terps average attendance of 2,727 ranked third in the country. A record crowd of 6,489 to see Maryland beat Duke, 1-0, in front of a national television audience on Fox Soccer Channel. Two other games ranked in the top-five for attendance at Maryland in 2006 as 6,214 came out to watch Boston College for the first time ever in College Park which is the second largest crowd to watch a game at Ludwig. In addition, NC State drew 4,565 which ranks fifth on the single game attendance chart. In 2005, the Terps finished second in total attendance and third in average attendance again. Highlighting the home season in 2005 was a then-record crowd of 6,203 to see Maryland play Indiana - the game was the highest attended regular season game in all of Division I. In 2004, the Terps had three crowds of over 3,200 in games against St. John's (one regular season, one postseason) and Duke and finished second in the country in total attendance. In 2003, nearly 30,000 people came to watch the Terps play, which also was the second-highest total in the nation. Highlighted in that year was Maryland's battle with UCLA, which was played in front of the seventh-largest crowd in NCAA history (6,143) to watch a regular season men's soccer game. The Terps defeated the Bruins, 1-0.

In addition to the collegiate games played at Ludwig Field, the complex has played host to numerous U.S. and professional soccer matches, as well. Among the teams who have used Ludwig Field as their home-away-from-home are the 2000 U.S. Women's National Team and the WUSA's own Washington Freedom.

In addition to the high-level of competition created by the excellent playing surface at Ludwig Field, the complex was also created with the local soccer fan very much in mind. The field is located directly adjacent to Parking Lot 1 and close to the University Boulevard entrance.

Numerous Terrapin All-Americans have called the field home, with Maryland fighting its way to an 113-30-7 record on its home field.

The facility is named after lifetime Terrapin friends Bob and Louise Ludwig.
