Mitchel Athletic Complex

Mitchel track and field venue.

The Mitchel Athletic Complex is part of the Mitchel Field complex, located in East Garden City, New York in the United States. Mitchel Athletic Complex was built in 1984 and renovated in 1997; it hosted track and field and soccer events during the 1998 Goodwill Games.[1]

Mitchel Athletic Complex (also called Mitchel Park and Mitchel Field) was the home to the Long Island Lizards of Major League Lacrosse. The 2003 Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game was held at Mitchel. It was also home to the New York Power of the former Women's United Soccer Association. It is the current home of the soccer club Long Island Rough Riders. The current seating capacity is 10,102.

One of the hangars of the Complex was the practice facility for the New York Dragons of the Arena Football League. The team played their games at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, on another part of Mitchel Field.

In 2013 the New York Cosmos opened a new practice facility for the team with remodeled soccer fields within the large site.[2]
