“Setting the Standard for NFL Training Facilities”

The privately funded practice facility is situated on 19 acres of industrial and waterfront property. Because the development is located on Lake Washington, permits were required at the Federal, state, and local levels.

In operation year-round, 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art waterfront facility is the second largest in the NFL. The VMAC features four practice fields, three outdoor and one indoor. The indoor field has a clear height of 95 feet to allow kicking and punting. Fans can watch training camp from a large berm beside the outdoor fields.

The first floor of the building, approximately 50,000 square feet, holds an auditorium and the team area, including locker room, lounge, training room, weight room, team meeting rooms, and media production studios. The second floor, approximately 48,000 square feet, houses the Seahawks football administration of coaching and football personnel offices, draft room, cafeteria, and weight room mezzanine. The third floor is for the team’s administrative offices. The on-site parking lot holds 275 vehicles.
