Anonymous commitment completes fundraising for new UVA Football Operations Center
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The funding needed for the University of Virginia’s Football Operations Center has been completely raised.
During the UVA Board of Visitors meeting last week, President Jim Ryan told members that a $5 million anonymous gift completed the funding for the $80 million facility.
According to a release, the announcement was made on the same day that ground was broken for the facility.
“I would like to thank the anonymous donors who got us over the goal line with this gift for the Football Operations Center, along with many other supporters who have made valuable contributions to our athletics programs,” said Ryan.
UVA says the new center will include a locker room, strength and conditioning space, nutrition spaces, meeting rooms, offices for coaches, video operations, and areas for sports medicine to treat injuries.
The center is scheduled to be completed by the spring of 2024.
The release says the Virginia Athletics Foundation is still fundraising for the remaining projects associated with the UVA Athletics Department’s Master Plan.
This includes an Olympic Sports Complex, the McCue Center renovation, and more.
