ARIZONA – The University of Arizona unveiled the new, multi-million dollar Cole and Jeannie Davis Sports Center Sunda.
Just across the street from Arizona Stadium, on the former site of Kindall-Sancet Stadium, the US$16.5 million indoor facility is temperature controlled, so teams can work through the changing weather conditions of the desert climate.
“It’s an enormous piece of the puzzle for all of our student athletes, our athletic program, an investment in a facility like this that can service so many," said Athletic Director Dave Heeke.
University of Arizona supporters Cole and Jeannie Davis committed US$8 million towards the construction of the facility. Their giving to the University of Arizona has reached a total of US$18 million.
"It’s also a key element to our football program. Having an indoor practice facility connected to our outdoor, right here in the footprint. The investment in our football program is critically important for success in the future.”
