Video rendering showcases Miami Hurricanes football’s indoor facility

Big-time season for the Canes

Days after news surfaced that billionaire developer Jeffrey Soffer would donate $15 million of the $30 million needed to build the University of Miami football program’s indoor practice facility, and renderings have been released of the state-of-the-art compound that will not only allow the program to practice during stormy summers but also provide a huge lift in recruiting.

Per State of the U, the facility will have two fields, measuring 80 yards and 40 yards in length, in addition to six meeting rooms, a 20,000-square-foot Football Operations office overlooking the fields, head coach’s suite, three conference rooms, a recruiting suite, and a high-tech video center.

The Miami Hurricanes are off to a stellar start on the field this season in Year 1 of the Mark Richt Era, winning their first three games in dominating fashion.

However, larger tests await in the coming weeks, starting with their first ACC opponent this weekend on the road in Georgia Tech.
