Icahn Stadium, which opened in April 2005, is located along Randall’s Island Park’s northwestern shoreline, visible from the East Side of Manhattan and the FDR Drive. The $42 million facility – built through a 1:1 ratio of public and private funding, and with a final $10 million naming sponsorship by New York City financier Carl Icahn -- meets International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF) specifications for accommodating local, national and international track and field events, including Olympic training and trials. It offers a standard 400-meter Mondo surface running track, flanked by covered spectator seating and overlooking the East River. It is illuminated by a pair of dramatic light towers, and partially sheltered by a cantilevered roof. Modern locker rooms, showers and meeting rooms have been constructed within the seating complex, along with fitness, exercise and meeting rooms geared toward RISF’s youth programs at the Park. In addition, a premier soccer field to the north of the Stadium is being outfitted with fencing, lighting and bleachers for spectator events.
