Doerr Family Field, officially dedicated Feb. 2, 2018, is a "labor of love for all of us in the Cal Poly community," as Mustang Director of Athletics Don Oberhelman describes the $4.8 million facility.
Named in honor of Richard A. and Kathleen M. Doerr, Doerr Family Field includes a state-of-the-art 140-yard synthetic-turf practice field, allowing room for football sled work, along with goalposts, lights, a flagpole, a scoreboard and a pair of filming towers.
The field is the primary practice facility for Mustang football, but also is being used by other athletics teams and Associated Students, Inc.
Cal Poly Athletics, Cal Poly Corporation, Cal Poly Housing and Associated Students, Inc., collaborated on the project.
Richard A. Doerr is a member of the Cal Poly Foundation Board of Directors. He received a bachelor's degree in physical education from Cal Poly in 1966 and played football for the Mustangs from 1964-66.
