The football training center is coming right along

We’ve talked plenty about the new Commonwealth Stadium, but the progress on the new football training center deserves a mention too. @UKAthletics tweeted out these pictures of the construction yesterday, and it shows you just how massive this new $45 million, 100,000-square foot facility is going to be:




That big flat patch of dirt will be training fields and a good portion of the wall that faces it will be glass garage-style doors the staff can open during good weather. This facility will be HUGE for the future of the program. I’d go as far to argue it will have just as big an impact as the renovations to the stadium.

For more details on the facility, check out my feature from this summer. Here are renderings of what it will look like once complete (July 2016):

      Hooker scandal has kept the trolls (somewhat) silent. That was a solid 40% of the comments around here prior to that bomb being dropped on them. 😉

    See what can happen when you spend your dollars on infrastructure rather than strippers and hos.

    Wonder how couch feels knowing his fields (ones he donated money for) will no longer be used for football… Who actually will use them? I know that current facility will now house some different sports anyone know which ones specifically? And why the reduction from 3 pracfields to 2?
