Klas Field A premiere athletic venue and home to Hamline's football and track and field teams. Pipers score touchdowns on the field's Prestige synthetic playing surface, which combines the traction of grass and the all-weather capability and usability of synthetic. The track team runs to victory on the nine-lane, 400-meter Mondo track, the most widely acclaimed track surface available. Fans cheer on the home team in Klas Center's stadium bleachers, which seat 2,000.
