CLEMSON, S.C. – At its Winter Quarterly meeting, the Clemson Board of Trustees gave concept approval for construction of a new football operations complex targeted for a 2017 opening.
The new football operations complex, to be located near the existing indoor practice facility, received concept approval which begins the process and allows for the hiring of an architect and further design of the new building. The complex is set to include lockerroom, meeting rooms, coaches offices along with strength and conditioning, sports medicine and a dining area, all located next to the indoor practice facility and existing practice fields. The budget for the project is $62 million. which will be financed completely by the athletic department and IPTAY.
“We are very excited and very appreciative of this approval,” said Head Coach Dabo Swinney. “While the West Endzone has been a great addition to our program the last six years, this new complex will be the home of Clemson football for a very long time.
“It will allow our operation to be in one place, which will be a great benefit to our student-athletes, coaches and football administration. This complex will be one of the best in the nation and will allow us to continue our pursuit to be among the best programs in the country.”
“We’re appreciative of the Board giving initial approval to the football operations center,” director of athletics Dan Radakovich said. “We will now seek the requisite state approval for this extremely important facility piece.”
Further details and renderings of the project will be made available as the construction and approval process continues.
