With a chandelier hanging above an elevated piano on the 50-yard line of the indoor practice field, Auburn University in Alabama celebrated the opening of the Woltosz Football Performance Center in early January with a grand opening gala.

The $92 million Woltosz Football Performance Center is 233,428 square feet and includes indoor and outdoor practice fields.

Dedicated in August 2021 and housing Auburn's football operations since the conclusion of the 2022 season, the facility features a dozen named spaces, including the Creel Family Player Development Lab, which boosts 25,000 square feet of strength and conditioning equipment and training space.

Eighty-five Auburn families gave at least $25,000 for the project, including 56 who gave $100,000 or more, 11 gifts of at least $500,000 and five of a million dollars or more. — Auburn Tigers
