Hawks Championship Indoor Center and Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Fields
The Hawks Championship Indoor Center opened for the football team during spring practice in 2006. The magnificent facility features FieldTurf identical to Memorial Stadium's surface.
The Hawks Center features 81,200 square feet, including a full-length field identical to Memorial Stadium's game field. The field is available to all 24 of Nebraska's varsity teams and provides a controlled environment with excellent lighting.
The Hawks Championship field also opens onto the practice fields of the Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Facility, which includes one grass field and one field which was converted to FieldTurf in the summer of 2012. The outdoor FieldTurf was replaced during the summer of 2018. The Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Fields help provide Nebraska with the most complete practice facilities in the nation for football. The Gass Practice Fields give the Huskers two full-size grass fields located in between NU's two indoor practice facilities - the Hawks Championship Center and Cook Pavilion.
