Texas Tech to build suites, indoor facility
By Jake Trotter
Texas Tech announced on Friday that it has launched a campaign initiative to raise $185 million, part of which will go to the construction of an indoor football training facility and the renovation of the Jones AT&T Stadium south end zone. The school already has $75 million committed to go toward the project. According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, the project will include the construction of 30 new suites in the south end zone. The school hasn't set a completion date yet.
"We as a Red Raider nation believe we have a bold future," athletic director Kirby Hocutt said in a statement. "We embrace the rising expectations we have for ourselves. With that we believe we have the ability to experience unprecedented success as an athletics program as we move forward. The Campaign for Fearless Champions, obviously, is one of the components of our plan as to how we are going to achieve national success. It's the right time for us to look at and prepare for our future. Our time is now to continue to elevate Texas Tech athletics to the top nationally."
Here are a couple renderings Tech released of the proposed project:
