STEPHENVILLE — Tarleton Football debuted one of the top field houses in college football just under two years ago, and now final touches to complete the project have begun.
Tarleton announced its final phase of the field house renovation on Wednesday, further enhancing the student-athlete and coaching experience as the program nears the end of their reclassification period to NCAA Division I.
Additions to the field house next season include a multi-purpose room, nutrition bar, film room, nine coaches offices, an academic advisement office and a full service barber shop.
In 2021, Tarleton opened its multi-million dollar field house and locker room. The new facility expanded out to 16,000 total square feet of space, which includes a unified locker room, training room, hydro room and equipment space.
Also, Memorial Stadium has undergone major upgrades recently, including new north end zone seating to boost capacity to 24,000 this past season. In 2019, a grandstand was built on the west side of the stadium, plus a video board was added on the south side, a $26 million renovation.
The continued investment helps keep the momentum surrounding the Tarleton Football program growing, one of the rare teams that has started its NCAA Division I era with three straight winning seasons. Only three other teams in the country since 2004 have begun their reclassification period with three winning seasons.
