Minnesota football has a new home: the David & Janis Larson Performance Center.
On Thursday, the Golden Gophers released a video highlighting the new performance center, equipped with a 16,000-square-foot weight room, 85-foot-tall indoor practice facility, locker room, training room, meeting rooms, players lounge and the Golden Gophers Hall of Fame.

The performance center is a part of the Athletes Village, which also includes a basketball development center and center for excellence. The $166 million, 338,000-square-foot project was completed and starting operating in early February and was entirely paid with private donations and athletics revenue, according to athletic director Mark Coyle.
Coach P.J. Fleck spoke at length about the complex and performance center and ensured it will fulfill Minnesota’s expectation of providing “a world-class experience academically, athletically, socially and spiritually.”
"This isn't just a football complex. This is a life complex."
