About ECA

Eugene Civic Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation established to build and operate a community sports and recreation venue on the historic Civic Stadium property.

ECA was founded in 2014, purchased the Civic site in 2015, and is currently engaged in a fundraising campaign to develop the site as a place where thousands of kids can discover the joy of fitness and where local sports teams can compete.

ECA and its fundraising campaign are led by more than three dozen accomplished volunteers, many of whom are well-known for their service to our community. We are grateful that they have joined our work.
