Video: Take a quick tour of the new $79 million Fightin Illini Football Performance Center

In just a few weeks, come January, Illinois will break ground on a new 107,650 square foot Football Performance Center to help close the gap between the Illini and the Big Ten’s elite facilities.

The new building, which will cost an estimated $79.2 million, will go up next to Memorial Stadium and this tour of what it will looks like is pretty impressive. Included are a new lobby, weight room, meeting rooms, a new locker room and players lounge, and so much more.

Check out the clip for the tour.
