AUBURN, Ala. (AP) _ Auburn University plans to build a new $28 million facility at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Al.com reports that the Auburn University’s board of trustees meeting agenda states the project for the 44,000-square foot facility will begin May and end in July 2018 if approved at a Feb. 3 meeting.

The facility will be built in the southwest corner of the stadium, and will include a 16,000-square-foot renovation of Auburn’s football locker rooms. The facility will also include designated space for football and Olympic sports recruiting, a new club space for fans and a new press box area for the media.

Auburn’s board of trustees approved the improvements of the facility in 2015.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports the funds from the Auburn University Athletics Department will pay the project cost.
