Indoor Athletics Facility
At the conclusion of the 2015 football season, the University of Georgia Athletic Association began construction of a state-of-the art Indoor Athletics Facility. The location of the facility will adjoin the northeast corner of the Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall complex addition and extends northward alongside Rutherford Street to the north end of the current grass practice field.
“Not only will this state-of-the-art facility catch your eye aesthetically, complimenting our athletics precinct as well as the entire campus brilliantly, it will also allow our 600 student-athletes the opportunity to train year-round in their pursuit of championships.”
-- Greg McGarity, J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics
The facility will be programmed for maximum functionality, as it will be approximately 140 yards long, 80 yards wide and 76 feet high, adding nearly 109,000 square feet of space. It is anticipated that the facility will cost around $30 million, and will be funded through the Georgia Excellence campaign. The projected completion is January, 2017. Follow along with construction progress here.
“This facility is going to have tremendous impact on our football program. Not only will it provide our current student-athletes the best indoor facility in the country, but it is going to help us continue to attract the best recruits in the country.”
Kirby Smart, Head Football Coach
The Indoor Athletic Facility will serve as the first component of a larger campaign UGA Athletics hopes to unveil soon which will be referred to as the Georgia Excellence Campaign.
