Photo Gallery: AU's Indoor Football Facility

Auburn's new indoor football practice facility is on schedule to be a new home for the defending national champions. Photos of the construction site are featured in this report.

This is the home of the practice field that will face north and south located at the west end of the $16 million indoor facility. The drainage system is being installed and an irrigation system will soon be added.

The main entrance to the indoor facility, which is 92,000 square feet, is located just off Samford Avenue. The project is currently 55 percent finished and on schedule to be finished by the start of preseason practice in August, according to Randy Byars, Auburn's director of athletic facilities planning.

This is a view of where the grass practice field will be located between the new indoor and the Watson Fieldhouse, the current indoor practice facility that is being replaced.

This is the same field view, taken from the athletic complex.

This is a view of the inside of the new indoor facility, which features a full size football field plus end zones, making it more than twice as long as the old indoor facility.

Another view of where the 140-yard practice field will be located alongside the indoor facility. Crews are putting the finishing touches on the roof.

This is another shot of the practice field to give you an idea of how much room is available. Construction works have begun sheetrock work.

A view of the indoor facility is shown with Samford Avenue on the right. Crews are currently installing a translucent wall. When that is completed the facility will be completely in the dry.

One of the new permanent towers that will be on the practice field to video the workouts is shown. The grass for the two outdoor fields is being grown offsite and will be transplanted in June.

This is another view of the facilty facing where it will connect with the weight room, which is being expanded as part of the project. Robins & Morton is overseeing the construction that includes work by General Construction Company, Bailey-Harris Construction, Parker Building Company, Beatty Construction and Sports Turf Company.
