The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors has approved the new location for the new indoor practice facility. The building will be placed on part of Tech’s existing practice fields.
It is expected that the facility will be built on the eastern portions of Tech’s current practice fields. That placement preserves all the trees in the Stadium Woods, which has been a big center of controversy. As a result, the current outdoor practice fields will have to be shortened, likely to either 75 yards or 60 yards.
The approximate cost of the project is $25 million. The cost will be paid for through private donations.
