New Multipurpose Center Coming To Liberty
Liberty is continuing to build upon its athletic facilities with a major investment that aims to improve the quality of life for several programs.
The school recently sent construction plans to the city of Lynchburg for a brand new 75,000 square-foot facility.
Liberty’s Multipurpose Center will be constructed next to the Indoor Tennis Center, and unlike most sports facilities, this facility will not be dedicated to only one Liberty sports team. It will primarily be used by a few NCAA sports: baseball, softball, men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse.
Athletic Director Ian McCaw spoke on the necessity of the new facility.
“The Liberty Multipurpose Center will serve a variety of campus programming needs, including athletics, club sports, intramural sports and summer camps,” McCaw said. “More specifically, the flexible space will be invaluable to our fall and spring sports teams, especially during inclement weather.”
The space will include batting cages, divided curtains to separate different workout stations and room for Liberty’s strength and conditioning teams. There will also be a new walking bridge connecting the Bailey Parking lot (parking lot next to LAC and baseball stadium) over Regents Parkway to the new Multipurpose Center.
Liberty also replaced its baseball video board before the start of the season. The old screen had been in the stadium for 12 years and was showing its age. The new video board is larger and has a higher-quality image.
