TO BUILD A CHAMPIONSHIP PROGRAM

Carolina Football is poised to make its next important step – to compete consistently for championships. The Football Practice Complex planned for central campus will give the program a much-needed facility on par with programs seeking that top level of play. The project exhibits a tangible and significant financial commitment to football at the University of North Carolina.

 

“We are the University of North Carolina, and it’s time we stepped up. The Football Practice Complex is a much-needed facility, and it’s so much more than simply a bad-weather option. It will help us to continue to build a championship program.” 
– Larry Fedora

 

CHAMPIONSHIP PREPARATION

Joining beautiful Kenan Stadium and the Kenan Football Center as part of the home footprint for Carolina Football, the Football Practice Complex will bring state-of-the-art fields and practice spaces to the program. The project will include many needed upgrades and additions:

  • Indoor facility with 120-yard synthetic turf field for optimal preparation in all conditions
  • 120-yard outdoor practice field with synthetic turf
  • 120-yard outdoor practice field with grass surface
  • Additional space for strength & conditioning training and sports medicine

 

  

IN THE HEART OF CAMPUS

The Football Practice Complex will be built in the heart of central campus – utilizing the space currently occupied by the grass and turf practice fields at Navy Field and Henry Stadium. The Football indoor facility will connect to the new Soccer and Lacrosse Stadium, and will feature a pedestrian walkway that connects the southeast side of campus and central campus. The two new outdoor practice fields will run parallel to the indoor facility, providing ample field space to maximize game preparation and practice efficiency.

 


 

“We want to continue to provide great facilities to our student-athletes, and this project enables us to do that.” 

– Bubba Cunningham
