Facilities & Directions
Multi-Purpose Indoor Practice Facility

The Auburn University Board of Trustees approved plans in June 2010 for a multipurpose indoor practice facility for football and other sports at Auburn. The facility features a 100-yard field and allows Auburn football, baseball, softball, soccer and track teams to practice indoors during inclement weather.

Construction on the 92,000 square-foot, $16 million facility was completed in the fall of 2011.

The facility is located adjacent to the current football practice fields behind the Auburn Athletic Complex. It runs East and West along Samford Avenue and connects with the Charlotte G. Lowder Student-Athlete Development Center and the James T. Tatum Jr. Strength and Conditioning Center. Athletics plans to continue using the existing John H. Watson Field House for Auburn’s Olympic sports strength and conditioning.

Jordan-Hare Stadium

Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium, the nation's 10th-largest on-campus stadium, with a capacity of 87,451, has served as home of the Auburn Tigers since 1939.

On football Saturdays in Auburn, Jordan-Hare Stadium becomes Alabama's fifth-largest city. More than 75,000 season tickets have been sold to Auburn home games in each of the last 18 years.

The stadium is named for Ralph "Shug" Jordan, Auburn's all-time winningest football coach, and Clifford Leroy Hare, a member of Auburn's first football team, president of the old Southern Conference and longtime chairman of Auburn's Faculty Athletic Committee.

Legendary coach Pat Dye has also had his name forever attached to Jordan-Hare Stadium, as the turf officially became known as Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium prior to the 2005 Iron Bowl.

Dye, who served as head coach and athletics director at Auburn from 1981-92 and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in December 2005, led Auburn to a 99-39-4 record and four SEC Championships in his 12 seasons on the Plains.
