Mackay Stadium is an outdoor athletic stadium in Reno, Nevada, on the campus of the University of Nevada. It is the home field of the Nevada Wolf Pack of the Mountain West Conference, the university's venue for football and track & field.
It replaced the original Mackay Stadium, formerly located in the bowl containing Hilliard Plaza, the Mack Social Sciences building, and the Reynolds School of Journalism. Both stadiums were named for Clarence Mackay, a university benefactor in the early years of the school.
The playing field sits at an elevation of 4610 feet (1,405 m) above sea level. Originally natural grass, synthetic infilled FieldTurf was installed in 2000 and replaced in 2010. The field runs in a NW to SE configuration, with the press box on the southwest sideline. Permanent lighting was installed in 2003, allowing the option of night games.
