The Carl Maddox Field House is an indoor track and field facility located on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The facility, built in 1975, serves as the indoor home of the LSU Tigers track and field team and the LSU Lady Tigers track and field team. The stadium has a seating capacity of 3,000. In 1998, the facility was renamed in honor of former LSU Athletic Director Carl Maddox during the SEC Indoor Championships. Maddox was an avid fan of track and field and a major force in building the field house.[1][2]

The field house features a 200-meter unbanked track, elevated jump runways, a variety of throwing areas and multiple high jump and vaulting areas.[3]
