The Cal Golden Bears’ stadium was built in 1923, and unfortunately, it was done so on top of an active fault line.
Anyway, Cal is owning this long-ago oversight.
The Golden Bears have put down a new turf field for the upcoming 2017 season, and it’s complete with a jagged line in the north end zone that marks where the Hayward Fault runs.
The 74-mile long Hayward Fault runs almost directly from end zone to end zone at California Memorial Stadium and parallel to the more well-known San Andrea Fault.
Here’s a stadium-wide perspective of the new Cal field, complete with fault lines and all.
