Lafayette, in partnership with U3 Advisors, has entered into an agreement with Sports Facility Advisory to perform a market analysis evaluating potential revenue generation opportunities for the College through a new facility at Metzgar Fields.
The concept being explored is similar to the McCartney Street residences in that it would be managed by a private company. It would feature a multi-purpose indoor facility that could be used by the College and leased to non-College users, including USA Field Hockey, youth sports camps, and other community programs.
Sports Facility Advisory is simultaneously partnering with USA Field Hockey to relocate its national headquarters and training site. The College has submitted a letter of interest to have USA Field Hockey become a partner in the potential development partnership at Metzgar.
Sports Facility Advisory has helped develop similar projects in more than 2,000 communities across the country.
