Clemson University has officially opened construction on the new men’s and women’s soccer operations complex. The project is set to complete in late 2020 and will be located adjacent to the soccer practice fields that were completed in August of 2016.
The new facility will include team-oriented locker rooms, team commons areas, coaches offices, meeting rooms, storage areas and sports medicine. The complex will additionally house video analysis rooms, an outdoor plaza, and additional parking next to the practice fields for both squads.
“It will be a huge addition to both programs,” men’s soccer Head Coach Mike Noonan said. “We are trying to build a championship culture here at Clemson, and this complex will fit right into that culture.”
The complex will be state of the art, as the design creates two mirrored wings for the men’s and women’s programs, maximizing access to their respective training areas and the center’s shared areas, such as training and video rooms. The design is carefully tailored to support the needs of an elite athletic facility while seeking to generate spaces that can become the heart of the two successful programs.
“I’m very excited about the new complex. We are looking forward to calling it home,” head women’s soccer coach Eddie Radwanski said.
The 13,000-square-foot complex will cost close to $8 million. The funding will be split between athletic gifts to IPTAY and revenue bonds repaid by athletic revenue.
With the excitement of the new soccer operations complex, there are still naming opportunities available. Anyone interested in supporting the soccer programs and the new soccer operations complex can call the IPTAY office and 1-800-CLEMSON and a member of the IPTAY team will be happy to speak with you.
