When the weather isn’t conducive to practicing outdoors, the Utes are able to work out in one of the finest indoor facilities in the nation.
The Spence Eccles Field House, a $6 million training venue that opened in November of 2004, provides Utah athletes with 74,000-square feet of space and a regulation-size FieldTurf football field, all under a 60-foot roof. The facility includes netting and batting cages for softball and baseball, a training room and restrooms. The Spence Eccles Field House was privately funded, largely through a $2 million gift from former Ute All-American skier and long-time benefactor Spence Eccles.
The building is located adjacent to the newly-opened Spence and Cleone Eccles Football Center, which includes a technologically advanced sports medicine and rehabilitation facility, a 19,000-square-foot weight room, and the Utah Athletics cafeteria.
