Middle Tennessee State University broke ground in January 2023 on the school’s new Student-Athlete Performance Center — a $66 million facility to be built next to Floyd Stadium on Greenland Drive in Murfreesboro.
Serving as the new home for the Blue Raider football team, the three-story, 85,500-square foot venue will also house athletic training, weightlifting and nutrition areas in addition to office spaces for coaches.
The new facility, along with an enhanced Murphy Center, will be part of a new gateway into campus and publicly reaffirms the school’s commitment to maintaining a nationally competitive athletic program.
The SAPC will feature three floors of amenities, including:
A nutrition station, a strength and conditioning room, an athletic training room with hydrotherapy pools, plus the new football locker room, player’s lounge and equipment room on the first floor
Offices for the football coaching staff, plus several meeting areas, a team meeting room, position rooms and coaches meeting rooms on the second floor
A student-athlete dining hall, which will also offer dining for fans on game days, on the third floor
