LSU Indoor Practice Facility

The LSU Indoor Practice Facility,[1] built in 1991, is a climate-controlled 82,500 square feet facility connected to the Football Operations Center and adjacent to LSU's four outdoor 100-yard football practice fields.[2][3] It holds the 100-yd Anderson-Feazel LSU indoor field.[4][5] The playing surface is Momentum Field Turf by SportExe. The indoor practice facility is adjacent to both the football-only weight room and LSU's four outdoor practice fields.[6] Besides allowing the team to practice during inclement weather, the indoor practice facility is used for LSU's summer endurance training and summer football camps.[7]

The LSU Lady Tigers soccer team uses the facility when inclement weather prevents the team from practicing at the LSU Soccer Stadium.
