The work continues on Miami’s indoor practice facility, which is still set for an Aug. 2018 opening.

Athletics Director Blake James posted a photo Wednesday of the progress, adding that “(a lot) of concrete” would be poured soon.


He also asked for donations. According to UM’s public donations website, it remains nearly $1.3 million short of its $34 million fundraising goal for the project.

The school held a groundbreaking ceremony May 4. The facility is named after donor Carol Soffer, whose family chipped in $14 million. It is adjacent to the school’s football building and will include 73,000 square feet of air-conditioned practice space, which will keep UM from missing practices (22 per year are affected because of weather, per the school).

It will have two turf fields, one of 80 yards and one of 40; 7,000 square feet of assistant coaches’ offices and position meeting rooms; and more than 13,000 square feet housing coaching staff offices and conference rooms, football operations offices, team meeting rooms and recruiting offices.
