Ball State University, Football Training Facility

Muncie, Indiana

The football stadium enhancement and expansion includes a new skybox, seating and restrooms.

The existing stadium is typical of many stadiums built 20 to 30 years ago with poor aesthetic appeal and little to no spectator hospitality features. The stadium enhancements include the development of a whole new aesthetic vocabulary of brick, detailed metalwork, ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCAPACITY300COST PER SQ FT$220.00FEATURED IN2002 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYSpecialized and graphics to give both a contemporary and historic collegiate tone to the design.

The new training center provides much-needed training facilities for the collegiate competitive program. The design is unique in that it incorporates the end-zone seating into the structure. A Sports Hall of Fame also is included.

The skybox is made of three levels. Level one includes a 4,000-square-foot club level with 1,200 seats; level two includes the President’s Suite, Cardinal Suite and club seating; and level three includes statisticians, coaching and media space.
