In Philadelphia, Drexel Athletics will add a new turf field that features an air-supported structure, commonly referred to as a bubble, to the Vidas Athletics Complex during the 2024-25 academic year.

This addition to Vidas will provide varsity athletics, club sports and intramurals an indoor space during the winter months as well as an additional artificial field for year-round use.

Construction on the project will begin in July with a targeted completion date of late 2024. There will be outdoor lighting for the field during the spring and summer months to allow for maximum utilization.

The new stadium will boast state-of-the-art amenities, including team locker rooms, a comprehensive training room, a media suite, concessions, and a versatile hospitality room with sweeping views of the playing field.
