Nottingham Field is a 6,500-seat multi-purpose stadium in Greeley, Colorado. It was built in 1995 and is home to the University of Northern Colorado Bears football team, as well as the Bears track and field programs. Nottingham field was erected to relieve the aging facilities at Jackson Field and provide the UNC Bears with a modern stage upon which they would launch themselves to two Division II National Football Titles. The Field was erected in 1995 with a capacity of 4,500. The field is named for Vic Nottingham, who spearheaded the effort to raise private funds for the entire $4 million project. Prior to the 2005 season the stadium's seating capacity was expanded to 6,500 by expanding the east stands. There is another renovation project underway which will build a locker room and fan amenity complex on the east side of the stadium.

Nottingham Field is the only natural grass playing field in the Big Sky conference, the conference the Northern Colorado Bears compete in.
