Blog: Indoor practice facility to be discussed at next athletic board meeting

Georgia still has plans to build a full-fledged indoor practice facility for football and it will be discussed at the next athletic board meeting in September, athletic director Greg McGarity said Tuesday.

‚ÄúEverybody keeps asking about the indoor facility,‚Äù McGarity said. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm sure it will be a discussion at our board meeting. There‚Äôs nothing beyond that. These projects have so many checklists. As far as planning, dollars and fundraising, we haven‚Äôt even gotten into the batter‚Äôs box yet.”

McGarity said there is still no timetable and no legwork has been done.
The cost had been estimated at about $15 million, but McGarity said the price tag isn’t yet known.

Facility improvements for tennis and equestrian are also needed.

McGarity called the indoor practice facility a “persistent issue,” sort of an elephant in the room.

“We’ll talk and discuss it with our board,” he said.
