Nottingham Field is a 8,533-seat multi-purpose stadium in Greeley, Colorado. It is home to the University of Northern Colorado Bears football team, as well as the Bears track and field programs.

Nottingham field was erected in 1995 in order to relieve the aging facilities at Jackson Field and to provide the UNC Bears with a modern stage upon which they would launch themselves to two Division II National Football Titles. The stadium's initial capacity was 6,500. Prior to the 2005 season the stadium's seating capacity was expanded to over 8,500 by expanding the east stands. The field is named for Vic Nottingham who spearheaded the effort to raise private funds for the entire $4 million project. Another renovation project added 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.
