IU Michael A. Carroll Track & Soccer Stadium is a 12,100-seat soccer and track and field stadium located in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. It is the home of the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Jaguars track and field and soccer teams. It was also the original home of the Indy Eleven team, at the time of the North American Soccer League.

The stadium is named for Indianapolis civic leader Michael A. Carroll.[1] The stadium was built in 1982 for $7 million as a track and field venue.[2] The facility has hosted the track and field events of the 1987 Pan American Games, 2001 World Police and Fire Games, several USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships and NCAA Championships as well as the 1988 US Olympic Trials where Florence Griffith-Joyner set the women's 100 metres world record of 10.49 that stands to this day. The site features a 400-meter Mondo track with eight lanes.

The stadium was renovated in 2013–2014 to accommodate the Indy Eleven.[3] As part of the Indy Eleven's move to the United Soccer League in 2018, the team moved to Lucas Oil Stadium.[4]
