Facility Features

The Right Athletic Stadium…in the Right Place…at the Right Time

The Athletic Stadium and Alumni Center is appropriately scaled for the campus and designed for the realities of today and the possibilities of the future.

Key features:

  • “The Stadium and Alumni Center will be a key anchor to help us physically connect the campus into an integrated education experience.”
    – President Robert H. Huntington

    Seating
    The facility will initially accommodate a crowd of 1,300, with the ability to add additional capacity in the future.

  • An exceptional setting
    Built into the hillside on Greenfield Street, the tri-level facility will be highly visible and easily accessible, and offers a beautiful view of Rock Creek.
  • “Fox Den” Alumni Center
    Featuring a reception area, exhibit gallery, and private viewing deck with access to reserved seating on the 50 yard line, the Fox Den Alumni Center will be an ideal place for renewing old ties and forging new ones.
  • Essential supporting infrastructure
    Upper Press Box Level; Plaza Level ticket windows, concessions and restrooms; Track Level locker rooms, and athletic training room for wrestling and other indoor sports. An elevator and designated handicapped seating areas will assure that those of all physical ability levels are welcome at the Athletic Stadium and Alumni Center.
  • Exterior enhancements that will create a “gateway” on Greenfield Street
    A “Game Day Field” outside of the main entrance for pregame activities, outdoor events, and student recreation. Other exterior features will include covered plaza areas, attractive ground and upper level walking areas, sidewalks and paths, and a sleek façade featuring stylized Heidelberg icons and symbols.
