UNLV Athletics announced the largest single gift in its history on Tuesday as the Fertitta Family has pledged $10 million toward the construction of a state-of-the-art football training facility, which will be known as the Fertitta Football Complex.
The 73,000-square-foot, two-level complex will be built on campus in the north end of the team’s practice area and overlook the Ernie Becker Sr. Football Fields at Bill “Wildcat” Morris Rebel Park.
The Fertitta Football Complex will become the day-to-day home of the program and include an academic center, locker rooms, offices, meeting rooms, strength & conditioning center, media room, training table and nutrition bar, athletic training center and player lounge.
The Fertitta family released a statement saying:
“We believe in the future of Rebel Football under Tony Sanchez’s leadership and are proud to join others in the community in helping make this vital building block for the program become a reality.”
The Fertitta family owns 19 Station Casinos in Las Vegas.
