Board of Regents Approve New Cyclone Facility

AMES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Board of Regents has approved a new $20.6 million football facility for Iowa State.

The board on Wednesday gave the green light for a 60,000 square foot, two-story complex to house the Cyclones football program.

The building will be located next to Iowa State's indoor practice facility just outside of Jack Trice Stadium. Construction will begin this summer and the facility is expected to open in the fall of 2012.

The new building will house locker rooms, coaches' offices and workouts areas.

Athletic director Jamie Pollard says the new building is needed because the Cyclones have outgrown their current space.

Iowa State plans to pay for the facility through private donations and athletic department revenue.
