Work has begun on a brand-new 11,100ft² locker room at Mississippi State University’s Davis Wade Stadium, where the Bulldogs players will be getting ready for home games in some of the most modern and advanced surroundings in college football.
The US$3.6m space designed by LPK Architects will include custom-built player lockers, color-changing LED lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, and athletic training and equipment rooms. There will also be a 3,000ft² recruiting lounge adjacent to the locker room.
A renovation and expansion was completed at the 61,337 seat Davis Wade Stadium in 2014, and now the privately funded upgrade will see the new home locker room move to a new location in the north end zone, with the visitors’ locker room housed in the south.
“Our student athletes and coaches deserve elite facilities,” said John Cohen, MSU director of athletics. “This project will greatly enhance our team and recruiting operations in Davis Wade Stadium. The expansive locker room is in line with Coach Moorhead’s vision of building a championship standard program here at Mississippi State.”
The project is scheduled to be completed by the start of the Bulldog’s 2018 football season.
