Published Add your comment

A $45 million project to build a new football training facility at University of Kentucky has been approved by the institution's board of trustees.

The project, which is to be funded privately, will build a new training facility along with two practice fields and a drill area behind the east endzone of Commonwealth Stadium.

The new two-story facility will include administrative offices, locker spaces, team meeting areas, training areas, high performance and weight room space, equipment rooms, a hydrotherapy room, player locker rooms, lounge facilities, an academic lounge/study area, media room and an entrance lobby with enhanced visitor amenities.

Construction will begin when plans are finalized and the whole job is hoped to be completed by 2016. 

The university seem to be committed to improving the football program as a whole and to bring it up to the level of their basketball teams, one of the best in the country. 

“As we continue to make a commitment to improving all of our facilities, this is a significant step for our football program,” said Mitch Barnhart, UK Director of Athletics.
