The $155 million, 350,000-square-foot North Side expansion will serve as the future training home of Nebraska Football, with a new training table and academic center for all student-athletes, improvements to the North Stadium, and a new location for an outdoor track complex. Of the $100 million fundraising campaign, $40 million is currently raised. Private support for the project is essential to meet the target opening date of June 2022.
“Nebraska has been an innovator in college athletics going back to Coach Devaney and Coach Osborne. We are making the investment to once again be a national leader in facilities, and continue our mission of competing at the highest level and building for championships.”
“This new complex will give our football program everything we need to operate efficiently on a daily basis. This building will showcase Nebraska and be a difference-maker as we sell our program to recruits from all parts of the country. It was also important that we design a building that benefits all of our student-athletes and helps position all of our teams to compete at the highest level.”
“We are investing more than $500 million to lead on a national stage—both in athletics and academics. We appreciate all of the incredible public and private support we have for these efforts. This new facility is an exciting opportunity to ‘Go Big’ for Husker Football and all of our student-athletes.”
"This facilities upgrade is another example of the commitment the Nebraska Athletic Department shows to dreaming big. When we renovated the Devaney Center in 2013, it changed the landscape of college volleyball with our record attendance numbers, and it certainly helped in attracting recruits who have helped us win two national championships and compete in four straight Final Fours. This new facilities project is another huge step forward for our athletic department.”
