Below is UCLA's official media release.
As the release reveals, UCLA has raised $40 million, but sources have told us that UCLA is still trying to raise another $20 million in the next 12 months.
The UCLA Athletic Department has released preliminary renderings of its new Football Performance Center, it was announced today. The renderings by ZGF Architects LLP (ZGF), an award-winning architectural, planning, and interior design firm selected by the UCLA Athletic Department to design the new facility, can be viewed at uclafootballfacility.com.
Since the official public announcement of the campaign to raise private funds for a comprehensive football facility back on September 24, 2013, the UCLA Athletic Department has received approximately $40 million in cash and pledges to date.
"The tremendous commitment to our football program, be it from Coach Mora, Heisman Trophy candidate Brett Hundley or AD Dan Guerrero, has been well documented," said Josh Rebholz, Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Relations. "And I'm proud to report that our Bruin family is stepping up and committing as well. To raise $40 million in little more than six months for this facility is truly remarkable, but now more than ever, we need everyone who loves UCLA to keep pushing forward and not rest until we get this project completely funded."
The ZGF-designed, state-of-the-art facility will be located on the west side of Spaulding Field and is intended to house a locker room, athletic training area, strength and conditioning facility, coaches' offices, team meeting rooms, equipment rooms and video rooms, in addition to several elements that will feature the storied history of UCLA Football. Notably, ZGF, whose dedication to design excellence has resulted in a nationally-recognized reputation for creativity and quality, completed work on the University of Oregon's athletic facilities which includes the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex (Football Performance Center).
