"As our team returns to campus this fall, the players are eager to see the progress of the center and know that they will be benefiting this year," said Mike Daly, head coach of men's lacrosse. "The speed of this undertaking is a testament to the leadership of the University, demonstrating their belief that a facility of this caliber reflects Brown's respected stature in the league and the potential for our program to continue to win championships."
Every player's dream
With dedicated team locker rooms accessible through the field, a training room for treatment on practice and game days, and a modern stadium experience, the anticipation for opening day is well founded. "I think the stadium will create a new dynamic; you can already feel it," said Sydney Cummings ’21, captain of the women's soccer team. "There is excitement and anticipation leading up to the big reveal. We can imagine how awesome it's going to be when the stadium is done, and we walk in and play for the first time."
Cummings noted that the planned rehabilitation space will be vitally important to collegiate athletes, helping them get the treatment they need. Additionally, the floor plan moves coaches' offices from adjacent buildings nearby to house all four programs under one roof.
"The new stadium is every player's dream," she said. "It's going to make a difference for every player that calls that field home."
