About Falcon Field

As well known for track & field competitions as for football, Falcon Field is the home field for the Cerritos College Falcons football team. It has been the site for the U.S. National Track & Field Championships in 1990 and a frequent host to the California State High School Track & Field Championships. In 1996, the stadium track was re-surfaced thanks to a grant from the United States Olympic Committee.

Adjacent facilities at the college include the Cerritos Swim Center (a training site for the 1984 Olympic Games) and the 1,000-seat Kincaid Field for baseball.

Quick Facts

The basics:
There is aluminum bench seating for 12,000 in grandstands arranged on both sides of the field. The track is nine lanes of all-weather, synthetic surface, surrounding a natural grass, regulation-size football field.

Location and parking:
The stadium is located south of Alondra Boulevard near Gridley Road on the eastern edge of the Cerritos College campus. Situated in the city of Norwalk, just north of the Los Angeles/Orange County border, it is about a mile east of the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway; use the Alondra exit.

Falcon Field is operated by the college. Inquiries regarding use should be directed to Patty Tugade, the athletics secretary, at (562) 860-2451 or by fax to (562) 467-5009.

Technical information:
The stadium was opened in 1958 and the nine-lane, all-weather track was renewed in 1996. There is lighting for night events from eight fixed towers.
