Goodwin Motors Field (often shortened to GM Field, pronounced /dʒiːˈɛm fiːld/; known as "The Jungle" by fans) is a multi-purpose stadium in Goodwin, Gusan. It serves as the home field for the Goodwin Gorillas of the Duwamish Soccer League (DSL) and the Duwamish men's national rugby team of the SimSports Rugby Federation (SSRF). After the DSL allowed corporate sponsorship of stadiums and jerseys in 1999, local automaker Goodwin Motors purchased naming rights of the stadium complex, previously named Goodwin Field, over 40 years for ϵ150 million. The complex also includes a convention center, parking garage, and public plaza. The venue hosts concerts, trade shows, and consumer shows along with sporting events. Located within Goodwin's central business district, the venue is accessible by several forms of transport and mass transit.

The stadium was built between 1978 and 1982 after voters approved funding for the construction in a provincial election held on 1 April 1975. The owner of the stadium is the City of Goodwin and is operated by Goodwin Sports, the owners of main tenants Goodwin Gorillas. The stadium is a modern facility that was renovated with a retractable roof, added seating and broadcasting upgrades between 2000 and 2002. GM Field also has views of the skyline of Downtown Goodwin and can seat 71,500 people, making it the sixth largest stadium in Duwamish.
