The MSU alumni foundation officials announced this week that the Bobcat Athletic Complex (BAC) fundraising campaign has almost reached it mark. After raising over $16.5 million dollars, the project just needs $1.5 million more to break ground on the 40,000 square foot facility that will close in the north end zone of Bobcat Stadium.
"Thanks to our many friends and donors, we're close to our goal, but we're not there. We need the Bobcat family to come together to help us make this important project a reality,” voice Chris Murray, MSU Alumni Foundation President and CEO. He also pointed out that approximately 320 supporters have donated to the project and that they are entering the final push.
MSU Athletic Director Leon Costello, added, "This complex supports our vision to develop champions in the classroom, competition and life. We owe it to our student-athletes and coaches to get this started as quickly as we can."
The BAC will house locker rooms, team meeting rooms, study spaces and a training, health and rehabilitation facility. It will also provide a new space for football offices. Once the football offices are relocated, a new 3,400 square foot athlete tutoring center will take their place in the Brick.
The BAC is a part of a larger project, outlined in the Athletics Facilities Master Plan. Released in 2017, the master plan proposes several projects spanning over a 20-year period. For more information visit: https://msubobcats.com/sports/2017/9/20/Facilities-MasterPlan
