Inside LSU’s $US28 million dollar locker room

Louisiana State University recently unveiled its renovated Football Operations Centre. The whole renovation cost $US28 million.

Here’s what’s inside…

The locker room has sleep pods for every football player. Each pod has a chair that folds out into a bed, similar to a first-class airline seat. It has charging ports for electronics and ventilated drawers to store shoes.

Overhead lockers store personal items and can charge the concussion sensors on the helmets. In addition to the revamped lockers, there’s a team lounge with a mini theatre and games.

And a nutritional facility that provides healthy food options for all student-athletes. There’s also a wall of fame honouring LSU football alumni.

NFL player and LSU alum Tyrann Mathieu donated $US1 million to the renovation. The new building was designed by HNTB Architecture. HNTB also designed multimillion-dollar athletic centres for colleges including the University of Kentucky and the University of Illinois.
