San Jose State's football operations building (which was built back in 1993) was in need of some updating, and thanks to about $25 million that have already been raised on a project set to cost about $40 million, they'll be breaking ground on the new facility in early June.
Initially dreamed up in 2016, the new Football Operations Center at San Jose State will be multi-storied and and put everything that the football program needs under one roof in a state-of-the-art facility.
The new facility will be on the east side of the stadium and will include new locker rooms, coaches offices, an auditorium, and spectator seating on the 50-yard line.
"The Football Operations Center will be a game-changer for San Jose State University. We are building a winning program here and our new home will provide our players, coaches, and staff the opportunities to succeed on the field, academically, and through our Beyond Football program," head coach Bren Brennan shared in the release. "It will show future Spartans that we have a vision and a plan for a winning football program that goes to bowl games and competes for conference championships."
The project will take a few phases to complete, with the initial phase including moving some bleacher seating to make way to the foundation starting this summer. Then, after the 2019 football season, the scoreboard will be relocated along with some lighting to prepare for the construction of the new facility.
Stay tuned, as new renderings on the space are released in the coming weeks and months.
