Univ. of Oregon still in planning phase for indoor football practice space

Current plans show a 130,000-square-foot practice field and 40,000-square-foot connector between the field and the Hatfield Dowlin ComplexUniv. of Oregon

Oregon AD Rob Mullens said the school is "still in the planning phase" for its new indoor football practice facility, with the "strong preference" being to maintain two outdoor fields alongside it, according to James Crepea of the Portland OREGONIAN. Seven months since plans were announced for the new 170,000-square-foot facility, the athletic department is "still ironing out details of the project and a timeline for its construction, which was announced to be completed in 2024." Current plans call for a 130,000-square-foot practice field and 40,000-square-foot connector, which will include an "'expanded weight room and players' lounge' and outdoor terrace, between the field and the Hatfield Dowlin Complex." Initial renderings showed the new facility "would envelope nearly all of the area where Oregon's three outdoor practice fields -- two turf and one grass -- are presently located." But a subsequent rendering showed the new facility with "two outdoor fields," which "would require expanding the area where the outdoor fields are presently at least into the parking lot behind the Moshofsky Center" (Portland OREGONIAN, 5/20).
