This project upgraded the George Welsh indoor practice facility to
provide a permanent indoor training facility for the Cavalier Football team,
allowing practice to continue amidst conditions that would prohibit outdoor practice
The facility is located in the North Grounds precinct, in an area dedicated to athletic uses.
Service and emergency access is from the existing pathway located on the west side of
the practice fields.
The 83,000 gsf facility includes a full 100 yard football field with end zones
and five yard overruns and provides a 65 foot clear height at the center of the field
for kicking practice. An elevated camera platform supports filming of practice
within the facility and on the adjacent outdoor field.
The facility also allows teams to take advantage of locker rooms, offices and other
in the nearby McCue Center and University Hall.
