Named for Bob Pascal, a 1956 graduate of Duke and a former All-America running back for the Blue Devils who provided a lead gift of $6 million for the project, the 80,000-square foot building is located within the Brooks Practice Facility. The structure features a 120-yard football playing surface.
The building, designed and constructed by The Beck Group with primary use scheduled for Duke's football and campus recreation programs, has a 65-foot ceiling at its peak and also includes a filming tower, retractable goalpost and locker room facility for game officials.
In addition to having a dynamic impact on Duke's football program, the indoor facility will significantly augment the school's Health, Physical Education and Recreation Department where over 5,000 students participate in club and intramural sports annually.
