May 2018 Update: The University of Virginia Board of Visitors has formally selected a site for a new softball stadium, which will be located at the corner of Massie and Copeley Roads. The goal is to create both a compelling team and spectator experience, with the benefit of having the other shared athletic facilities nearby. The design of the new facility should be available for the Board to review in June.
“It’s important for any of our student-athletes or any of our students to make sure that they have a great facility to maximize their potential to learn, grow, develop, get better, and so this facility will certainly help our softball student-athletes thrive,” says UVA athletics director Carla Williams.
Plans are underway to expand the team-support facilities and fan amenities for the University of Virginia Softball Facility located at the corner of Massie and Copeley Roads. This project is based on the UVA athletics department’s goal to build and maintain the highest quality facilities in the country with the purpose of attracting and developing the best student-athletes to the University annually. This facility will also further strengthen team culture and enhance UVA softball’s competitive presence in the ACC and on the national stage.
The main focus of this project is to enhance the capacity for player development by constructing an indoor practice facility that includes two batting tunnels. In addition, this facility will include player lockers, coaching offices, administrative support space and a lounge for players.
These additions will help create a dynamic area for players and coaches. Upgrades to the grandstands to benefit the spectator experience will also take place.
This project will be funded with donor contributions. Naming opportunities for this project will be published at a later date. Please contact the Virginia Athletics Foundation at 800-626-8723 / 434-982-5555 to invest in the future of Virginia Softball and help us with this expansion plan.
