About the Anderson Training Center
The 145,000-square foot Anderson Training Center will house day-to-day operations for the Tennessee football program.
Tennessee's state-of-the-art Anderson Training Center will be one of the most modern and functional buildings of its kind.
The 145,000-square foot building includes an amphitheater-style team room, coaches offices, position meeting rooms, a dining hall, players' lounge, a 7,000-square foot locker room, a 22,000-square foot, multi-level weight room as well as a new training room and hydrotherapy area.
The building also features several technological upgrades, including a state-of-the-art video delivery system for players and coaches. The locker room includes, roomy, custom-built and ventilated lockers with electrical outlets for charging portable devices like cellphones, iPods and laptops.
Also included in the building is an updated football hall of fame area.
The Anderson Training Center will join with the Brenda Lawson Athletic Center and Neyland-Thompson Sports Center. It will provide athletes direct access to both the 120-yard indoor football field and Haslam Field, Tennessee's two outdoor football practice fields.
Construction is slated to begin in Spring 2011, and the project is scheduled for completion in Summer 2012.
Upon completion of the project, the existing football space in the Neyland-Thompson Sports Center will be renovated to accommodate the approximately 110 athletic department employees currently housed in Stokely Athletics Center. Stokely must be vacated by December 2012.
