The stadium became the official home of Bruin track and field in 1969, while soccer made the move to Drake Stadium in 2000. In 1973, it was officially named Drake Stadium in honor of a legend at UCLA, Elvin C. “Ducky” Drake, who had been associated with UCLA as a student-athlete, track coach and athletic trainer for over 60 years.
