WLWT-TV reports that the 84,000-square-foot Indoor Practice Facility will feature a 120-yard football field that will give Cincinnati's football program a year-round, permanent, all-weather home.
The facility will also be used by other university programs. It is being built on the site of the existing Sheakley Athletic Center.
The 96,000-square-foot performance center will include offices for the football program and feature performance nutrition stations, a dining hall, sports performance weight room, athletic training room and mental health services.
The University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees approved the funding for the project at a maximum of $134 million.
The Indoor Practice Facility is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2024 football season. The performance center will be constructed next to the indoor practice facility. It is scheduled to open prior to the 2025 football season.
