Auburn University last week approved a new $91.9 million standalone football facility on campus.
The school’s Board of Trustees gave final approval for the Football Performance Center during a virtual meeting Friday.
Expected completion for the facility is July 2022.
The facility’s stated purpose: "Provide the Auburn University football team with the key and essential capabilities and resources needed to successfully compete within the Southeastern Conference and with national peer programs."
According to the Montgomery Advertiser, the facility will feature a 131,000-square-foot operations building, a weight room, a 95,300-square-foot indoor practice facility, and two natural grass outdoor practice fields.
Amenities include a large, circular locker room, team meeting spaces, a player's lounge, a barbershop, a recording studio, a flight simulator, and offices for coaches and staff, with large video displays throughout.
