A completely-transformed Sun Dome serves as the heart of the USF Athletics District. The 10,000-seat multi-purpose facility has been revamped from top-to-bottom and now stands as one of the premier collegiate venues in the country. New lower-bowl seating, club sections for fans and students, and 10 Loge Suites create an upscale atmosphere. The viewing experience has been enhanced by a center-hung LED video board, high-definition video monitors throughout the building, and state-of-the-art sound and graphics. Upgraded food concessions and expanded restroom facilities round out the guest amenities. The building’s exterior has also been renovated, creating one main grand entrance.
One of the finest facilities in the Southeast, the track and field stadium has recently been remodeled to meet international competition standards. The 400-meter track now features a state-of-the-art running surface and wider lanes, while the infield boasts new runways for the pole vault, javelin and triple and long jumps, as well as improved areas for the high jump and throws. The 4,000-seat stadium also includes a press box and concessions, plus all-new lights to accommodate evening meets and activities.
Attention to detail translates to a first-class competition experience at the new baseball stadium. The facility can seat 3,211, but is configured to accommodate additional capacity for larger tournaments and events. The field features step-down dugouts, bullpens, covered batting cages, and a press box. A second-floor observation deck, plus several shaded hospitality areas, means fans can watch in comfort. The baseball stadium is connected to the new USF Softball Stadium and shares many guest amenities, making for a one-of-a-kind collegiate level venue.
The brand new softball stadium reflects the university’s commitment to excellence, which is evident in every aspect of the state-of-the-art facility. Coaches and players will appreciate the step-down dugouts, covered batting cages, ample warning track, and bullpens. Families and spectators can cheer in comfort from the 750-seat canopied grandstand, and celebrate from two party pavilions or the shaded hospitality deck. The softball stadium is part of a shared complex with the USF Baseball Stadium.
Fans and players alike will love the exciting atmosphere created by the design and placement of the new soccer stadium. In addition to the 1,000-seat grandstand, grassy berm areas behind both goals place spectators within 10 feet of the action. An expansive press box featuring a dedicated broadcast booth is a valued amenity for television media and reporters. The stadium, with direct access to the Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center, enjoys use of the Big East Conference room for pre- or post-game hospitality.
In addition to the varsity complexes in the USF Athletics District, a diverse mix of facilities and fields are located throughout campus and can support a wide array of sports and competitions. The newly-renovated Campus Recreation Center features four basketball courts, which are convertible to five volleyball courts and 12 badminton courts. The building also includes an indoor pool, a jogging track, an extensive fitness area, locker rooms, and several multi-purpose activity rooms. For outdoor sports, event organizers have access to 13 lighted multi-purpose turf fields, three outdoor pools, and 16 lighted tennis courts.
Located in close proximity to the Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center, the new football practice complex delivers an extraordinary training environment. Three full-size, lighted fields – two grass and one synthetic turf – anchor the facility, with a supplemental turf area for drills and specialized coaching. An adjacent building allows for both open and closed equipment storage and on-site sports medicine treatments. Leading-edge lighting, sound, and video systems enhance the practice experience and help simulate game-day situations.
This brand new on-campus facility elevates basketball to new heights, with coaches and players both reaping the rewards. The two-story complex features multiple practice court configurations, coaches offices and conference rooms overlooking the court, video production capabilities, theater-style film room, and a multi-purpose area. The Center is designed to create the best environment for the student-athlete to excel, with an athletic training room, strength and conditioning facilities, and player lounges complete with both gaming and kitchen/snack areas. Adding to its functionality, the building is connected to the USF Sun Dome by a 30-foot tunnel.
