Nodak Insurance Football Performance Complex

“Climate-Controlled Training Facility for High-Level Preparation”

The Nodak Insurance Football Performance Complex project will provide a state-of-the-art training facility for the fourteen-time national champion NDSU football program that will also include capacity for women’s soccer, men’s and women’s golf, baseball, softball, and men’s and women’s track and field also affected by North Dakota’s changing climate throughout the year.

The complex will have two artificial turf fields – one indoors and one outdoors. The indoor field will be a full 120 yards long and 60 yards wide with a roof clearance of 72 feet at the peak. The indoor facility will cover more than 117,000 square feet including the practice field, operations building and storage warehouse. There will be camera decks on all sides, an elevated viewing area for recruiting and guests, a weight room and fueling station, and a retractable netting system to accommodate multiple sports.

Seven overhead doors will open from the indoor facility onto the outdoor practice field for ease of transition during team practices, scoreboards and play clocks will be provided on both fields, and LED lighting systems will be installed indoors and outdoors.
