Broad Fieldhouse opens; work begins on fitness center

The first occupants of the Eli and Edythe Broad Fieldhouse have finally settled in.

Members of the Sacramento State football and track coaching staffs have completed their move into the new 26,235 square-foot facility. The fieldhouse, located at the south end of Hornet Stadium in the Alex G. Spanos Sports Complex, houses coaches’ offices, locker rooms, a sports medicine area and a new strength and conditioning room.

The facility is named for Eli and Edythe L. Broad who provided a gift of $2 million toward its construction.

The staffs began moving in from the old field house at the north end of the stadium earlier this month. Preparations are underway to demolish the old field house and replace it with a 150,845-square foot, recreation and wellness facility for the campus community. That facility, paid for in part by student fees, will feature a fitness center, an indoor track, gym courts, racquetball courts, a rock climbing wall and the student health center.

The new fitness center is scheduled to open in fall 2010. An official grand opening for the Broad Fieldhouse is scheduled for September.

For more information on either facility, contact Ron Richardson, associate vice president for Facility Services at (916) 278-6241. For media assistance, contact Sacramento State’s Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
