Dear football alumni, supporters and fans, 

Success in Tech football transforms our campus, city and community. Winning fuels energy and passion in communities, economies and campuses. There is no substitute for winning. 

Building a new Football Operations Center is about more than rekindling a strong tradition in Golden Eagle football. It’s about leaping into a future where players, fans, students, alumni, businesses and supporters take on the team’s identity as part of themselves. 

A winning team brings people to the front door of a university. Success breeds loyalty, traditions, and support. And the positive economic impact follows. In the short term, people travel to games, buy merchandise, food, gas and more. In the long run, the university and community become known for being full of spirit and success. 

It is rare that you have a chance to experience the transformation a new facility and attitude can have on a program, a campus and a city. 

We have challenged ourselves to do more than catch up with other teams. We plan to jump ahead of competitors. This is the project you’ve been waiting for if you love Tech athletics. Join us. Let’s win. 

Wings Up,

There is no American tradition more exciting than college football!

A winning football program benefits Tennessee Tech, the campus and the local communities. A new Football Operations Center will provide a wow factor for recruiting prospective student-athletes, enhance the overall competitive experience of our current football players, create fellowship and instill camaraderie among the players, resulting in a strong and lasting bond when playing days are over.
