Football Practice Field

Locker Room | Athletic Training Clinic | George Welsh Indoor Football Practice Facility | Weight Room
Keeping in line with its goal to build and maintain the finest facilities in the nation, in the summer of 2006 Virginia had the state-of-the-art FieldTurf playing surface installed on the two practice fields located adjacent to the McCue Center.

Utilized by several dozen Division I football programs and the majority of the stadiums for NFL franchises, FieldTurf emulates natural grass with a mix of silica sand and cryogenic rubber and a patented layering process. Its benefits include improved player safety and reduced maintenance.
