The Future of

Virginia Athletics

"With all the uncertainty in college athletics, we must ensure we can continue to develop citizen leaders and compete for, and win, national championships. In order to do this for all sports, we must invest in our football program because it is the right thing to do and because football drives revenue for our entire department. We have a window of opportunity to transform our athletics facilities and solidify the future of UVA Athletics."

— CARLA WILLIAMS

    Football Operations Center


    The complex includes a Football Operations Center. The current home of Virginia Football, the McCue Center, opened in 1991 and is no longer suitable to house the needs of a Power 5 conference football program. Since the McCue Center opened, every current ACC football program has renovated or opened a new support facility.

    Natural Grass Practice Fields


    The addition of two grass practice fields for football and another for field sports will significantly enhance the development of our student-athletes and provides the best chance for them to stay healthy during practice. Fewer injuries occur on grass practice fields than artificial surfaces and grass is the surface most of our field sports compete on throughout their seasons.

    The Promenade


    The UVA athletics department is working closely with the University to help improve connectivity from Central Grounds to North Grounds. The addition of a pedestrian promenade as a prominent feature of the master plan helps provide this connectivity. The promenade also creates opportunities for the recognition of UVA athletics legends and dedicated donors whose financial support help make this project a reality.

The athletics master plan will become a reality with significant donor contributions from thousands of Cavalier fans. There are a variety of naming opportunities available to recognize this remarkable support. Our student-athletes and coaches are depending on donors to join us in setting this new standard for Virginia Athletics.

This facility project is a signature component of the athletics portion of the University's ongoing fundraising efforts, Honor the Future: The Campaign for the University of Virginia. In addition, continued support of the Virginia Athletics Foundation Annual Fund and scholarship endowment will be critical to the overall success of Virginia Athletics.
