Originally named in honor of former Eagle head football and basketball coach Arthur C. Woodward, the “New” Woodward Field in Cheney, Wash., has been used by the Eagles since 1967. Prior to the 2010 season Eastern had a 101-51 record (66.4 per-cent) in 152 games at Woodward Field since 1967. it has 8,600 permanent seats after an expansion in 2004 that included the addition of 1,600 seats in the north end zone. Renovations to the facilities in the 1990s included resurfacing the running track, additional bleacher seating on the east side, addition of lights and two new restroom facilities. Eastern Washington removed the natural turf at Woodward Field and replaced it with red FieldTurf, making the it the third college football program to have a non-green playing surface (Boise State of the WAC and New Haven in Division II both have blue surfaces). EWU alumnus Michael Roos donated $500,000 toward the installation costs, and fellow alum and ESPN personality Colin Cowherd also made a donation.On May 20, 2010 the Eastern Washington Board of Trustees approved a name change to Roos Field, scheduled for the 2010 season. Since the successful completion of the project, the Eagles have been undeafeated at home, winning the 2010 Big Sky championship and playing in the NCAA championship game.
