Mercer University has broken ground on its new football and lacrosse complex in Georgia, US.

The facility has been designed by US-based McMillan-Pazdan-Smith Architecture of Spartanburg, and Chris R Sheridan will be the general contractor for the project.

The four major components of the complex include the Homer and Ruth Drake Field House, the William H Anderson II Family Field, the Marshall and Jane Butler Family Plaza and the Tony and Nancy Moye Family Football and Lacrosse Complex.

The initial phase of the complex includes the field house, the playing surface, seating, a press box, and plazas on both sides of the field with restrooms and concessions.

The facility will accommodate 6,000 spectators.

The Homer and Ruth Drake Field House will include a sports medicine clinic, offices for the football and lacrosse coaches, team meeting rooms, a student lounge, locker rooms, a weights room and a training room.
