Last May, Athletic Director Keith Tribble announced his plans for a 10-year, $70 Million expansion in athletics facilities. The Track and Soccer complex was identified as one of the top priorities for upgrades, and construction is now underway on the first phase of expansion. According to the athletics department:
The new stadium will contain a press box and public restroom building and will be clad with a red brick and stucco facade. When completed, the UCF Track and Soccer Complex will have a seating capacity of over 2,000.
According to the school, $972,000 will be spent on this first phase of upgrades. The second phase, a 7500-SF clubhouse with locker rooms, meeting space, and training rooms, is still in the works.
The first phase of construction will be complete in time for the UCF Invitational, March 25-26.
