Since an official public announcement last September of a campaign to raise private funds for a comprehensive football facility, the UCLA Athletic Department has received approximately $40 million in cash and pledges to date for its new football performance center.
“The tremendous commitment to our football program, be it from Coach Mora, Heisman Trophy candidate Brett Hundley or Athletic Director Dan Guerrero, has been well-documented,” said Josh Rebholz, senior associate athletic director for external relations. “And I’m proud to report that our Bruin family is stepping up and committing as well. To raise $40 million in little more than six months for this facility is truly remarkable. But now more than ever, we need everyone who loves UCLA to keep pushing forward and not rest until we get this project completely funded.”
The UCLA Athletic Department recently released preliminary drawings of the new facility being designed by ZGF Architects LLP, the award-winning architectural, planning, and interior design firm selected to design the new facility.With a nationally recognized reputation for creativity and quality, ZGF completed work on the University of Oregon’s athletic facilities, which included a campus football performance center.
The state-of-the-art facility will be located on the west side of Spaulding Field and is intended to house a locker room, athletic training area, strength and conditioning facility, coaches’ offices, team meeting rooms, equipment rooms and video rooms, in addition to several elements that will feature the storied history of UCLA Football.
