YOU are invited to help celebrate MSU’s newly renovated Brick Breeden Fieldhouse at an open house set for Wednesday, Aug. 20, from 6-7:30 p.m.

Individuals who attend will have the opportunity to view the Fieldhouse’s new $3.2 million upgrade, which includes a new running surface, upgraded seating, a new sound system and venue curtains. Complimentary Pepsi products and popcorn will be provided at the event.

The fieldhouse was originally built in 1956 at a cost of 1.6 million dollars. This would be 13.8 million dollars today.

  • New athletic offices and main offices for coaches
  • A weight room addition and remodel
  • A new main entrance on the south side of the building
  • Locker room remodel
  • New reception areas
  • New Hall of Fame
  • Major infrastructure improvements for the heating system, electrical distribution system and plumbing
  • Seismic updates
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) updates, including the installation of an elevator from the main level to the mezzanine
  • Replacement of all the seating, including the installation of some padded seats
