After a comprehensive review and evaluation of the athletics program, needs of over $60 million have been identified. Comprehensive in nature, the initiative is designed to impact every Mountaineer student-athlete and sports program. A Mountaineer Impact, A Drive for Excellence will construct and enhance athletic facilities, provide critical scholarship support, impact the overall athletic experience for student-athletes and fans, while strengthening campus and community engagement.
The design phase of the end zone project is complete, and the project now has approval to be financed and constructed. The facility will be 87,000 square feet of space and will accommodate various athletics and academic uses, including spaces for athletic training, hydrotherapy, locker rooms, conference and continuing education training, medical offices, coaches and staff offices, dining facilities, a team store and ticketing office. There will be approximately 1,000 premium seats added to the existing Kidd Brewer Stadium seating structure. The proposed completion date is prior to the 2020 football season.Learn More Secure Club Seats Now
The new complex, which will be built on the site of the old Watauga High School off Highway 105 in Boone, will feature relocated competition and training facilities for the App State track & field, tennis and softball programs. Some of the facilities require relocation because of the Kidd Brewer Stadium north end zone project, while others will be enhanced to improve facilities for student-athletes. The complex is expected to include a track, four indoor tennis courts, six outdoor tennis courts, a softball stadium, a multi-use field and a building with shared team spaces and offices. The project timeline is yet to be determined but more information will be available soon.Learn More
