On February 14th, 2017, the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced that Weidner Apartment Homes had acquired the naming rights to Switchbacks Stadium. Weidner Apartment Homes Vice President - Public Relations, Greg Cerbana and Switchbacks President Nick Ragain made the announcement at the Antler Hotel in front of media and fans.
Weidner Field was originally built in 1985 at what is considered Coleman Park in a joint effort between the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the City of Colorado Springs. The intent was for the facility to be the host to US International matches and higher level competitive events.
On June 14, 2014 the Colorado Springs City Council approved an agreement with the Switchbacks that gave the new USL franchise a ten-year lease on the site. The Switchbacks FC performed a $3.0M renovation of the stadium that incorporated a 5,000 seat venue, press box, enhanced sports lighting, suite seating, broad cement concourses, restrooms, locker rooms, administrative offices, concessions and public Wi-Fi. The Switchbacks continue improvements for 2016 by adding an LED display and concourse improvements that include shade awnings.
Weidner Field's address is 6303 Barnes Road, 80922. Crossroads are Barnes and Tutt Blvd (or entrance used for Kum & Go, and Barnes and Charlotte Pkwy.)
