The Ducks will host the Arizona State Sun Devils on Saturday at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, a venue that will serve as the home of the Pac-12’s new league-championed franchise, the Pacific Football Conference.
A new facility has been designed to accommodate the growth of the league’s expansion, which will feature a 20,000-seat stadium in Tempe, Arizona, as well as a new training facility and facilities in Santa Clara, California, and Phoenix.
The Sun Devils have yet to announce their location for the new facility, but the Ducks are reportedly interested in the site in the city’s Central Valley, which hosts the new Levi’s Stadium and other stadiums for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.
The Pacific Football conference, which was created in 2008, is comprised of 10 schools that have not yet played a game.
The conference will play its first game in 2019.
It’s unclear if Oregon or any of its members will participate in the league, but Oregon has a history of hosting professional sports teams, including the Ducks and the NFL.
Oregon’s Ducks basketball team played the first game at Century Link Field in 2017.
The new stadium, which could open to the public in 2020, is expected to cost approximately $200 million, and is scheduled to be completed by 2021.
It will also be the site of a new Pac-13 football game between the Ducks, Arizona State, Utah, Washington State and UCLA.
