Bobcat Athletic Complex

“Built to Win Championships”

The Bobcat Athletic Complex (BAC) is the first building to be constructed as part of Montana State University athletic department’s “Our Heritage, Our Future” vision, which seeks to improve all on-campus sports facilities and potentially pave the way for the introduction of additional sports in the future.

The 40,000-square-foot BAC was designed to meet the needs of the Montana State University Athletic Program as identified by users and stakeholders in a manner that encompasses current trends in Division I Athletics and Football Operations. In addition, the facility was designed to accommodate 5,000 square feet of clinical space for regional health care provider Bozeman Health.

Facility details and amenities
This facility contains a new locker room for day-to-day use and game-day use. It also provides all necessary health, safety and training areas for the football team and all student-athletes, including:
• A new weight room
• A nutrition refueling station
• Training, rehabilitation and recovery rooms

The building serves as a showcase for recruiting, highlighting the history of MSU football and giving recruits a glimpse of what life as a Bobcat can be. It provides the necessary spaces and tools for coaches including team rooms, coaches’ offices, conference rooms and space for video analysis.
