UGA Plans $30.2 Million Practice Facility

ATHENS - UGA has officially sanctioned and plans to build an indoor practice facility.

It is a move that’s long been in the making.

“We will be the last SEC institution to have an indoor building. Florida moved into theirs last weekend,” AD Greg McGarity said during a UGA Athletic Board Meeting on Monday.

The $30.2 million project will start after the end of the 2015 season and will require $15.1 million in gifts. The rest of the project will be covered by UGA’s cash in hand. In addition, if UGA can’t raise the $15.1 million by the time the project is done it can bridge the gap with its own money.

McGarity said it was his hope that the project will be a game changer for the Bulldogs.

“I think it will be a transformational building for our program,” he said during the meeting. “We are not going to take any short cuts because this facility will be here for a very long time.”
