Here's a slide show by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer of the Seattle Seahawks' new practice facility, which opened Aug. 18. It's called the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. Here's what the Seahawks say about it in a press release:
- The privately funded practice facility will be situated on 19 acres of industrial property. It will house a permanent indoor practice facility, the team's current Kirkland front office departments and will also accommodate Corporate Sponsorships and Fan Development that are currently located at Qwest Field.
In addition, there will be four outdoor practice fields, 50,000 square feet of training facility space (currently 16,000 in Kirkland), 15,000 square feet of player meeting space (currently 5,700) and 48,000 square feet of administrative office space (currently 14,500).
The facility will also include access for fans to attend training camp in 2008 for up to 3,000 spectators per day.
