Football

The Master Plan will transform the Virginia Football operation and the experience of our football student-athletes.


The complex includes a new Football Operations Center. The current home of the program, the McCue Center, opened in 1991 and is no longer suitable to house the needs of a Power 5 conference football program. Since the McCue Center opened, every current ACC football program has renovated or opened a new support facility.

Virginia's Football Operations Center will provide our football student-athletes and coaches every opportunity to field a consistently competitive program. More importantly, this new facility will allow our coaches and staff to safely train and develop our student-athletes through the addition of two grass practice fields dedicated to football and new facilities that will house academic affairs, sports medicine, sports nutrition and strength and conditioning.

In addition, the Center for Citizen Leaders and Sports Ethics will benefit the development of football student-athletes in five areas: academic achievement, career development, leadership development, personal development and community engagement.

"The Center gives us equal footing with our competitors to achieve what we all want – exceptional football with exceptional people who are exceptional students."

—Head Football Coach Bronco Mendenhall
