Indiana Wesleyan University - Football Stadium
Indiana Wesleyan University does everything whole heartedly. When they decided to add football to their athletics program, their goal was to create the best facility in their division. We designed a best-in-class football and training stadium that remained sensitive to their budget. The new Wildcats team trains in a large weight room that overlooks the end zone. Film and meeting rooms accommodate large and small groups of players and coaches. The locker room features a massive Wildcat logo on the ceiling, custom logoed lockers, and a logoed carpet, making it impossible not to catch team spirit!
The stadium is designed to create a unique tradition for IWU. The stadium was sited close to student housing to make it easy for students to enjoy games and start new traditions. A site plaza functions as a gathering and tailgating space. The IWU Wildcat statue is directly inside of the entry where fans can interact with it and create some game-day luck.
Starting with a flat site, a stadium bowl was created by sinking the field two feet and building up the earth around it. Stands are integrated into the stadium and are wrapped into the end zone building. Multiple game day suites are available for fans, and a press box overlooks the stadium for press to cover games.
