This project includes the construction of additional softball, and multi-use lacrosse/rugby/soccer fields to provide more capacity for outdoor intramural and club sports.
The completion of the SportsPlex in spring 2020 is the culmination of Campus Recreation’s long-term goal to expand the Intramural Field complex. The existing facility was constructed in 1979 when Auburn University student enrollment was approximately 18,000. The complex consists of 15 acres on Biggio Drive.
Since that time, student enrollment at Auburn has increased to over 25,000 students without any increase in recreational field space on campus. Fields are heavily utilized by over 10,000 participants and more than 1,000 intramural and club sports teams annually. The lack of adequate outdoor field space has limited the expansion of student sports and recreation programs for many years.
The new SportsPlex and current intramural fields expand offerings for club and intramural sports and provide state-of-the-art facilities for intercollegiate competition, tournaments, and special events.
We are excited for the opportunities the new facility and field space make available to Auburn students and look forward to expanding our programs and services to better serve the campus community.
