Record $10 Million Gift Going Toward UNLV Football Facility

LAS VEGAS (AP) — UNLV’s football program has received the largest single gift in its history and will put the $10 million from the Fertitta family toward a new training facility.

The gift, announced on Tuesday, will be put toward the new facility that will be known as the Fertitta Football Complex.

The two-level, 73,000-square-foot complex will include an academic center, locker rooms, a workout center, training center and a nutrition bar.

It will be built on campus at the north end of the team’s practice area. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring and last about 10 months.

The Fertitta family has been a huge supporter of UNLV and the school’s tennis facility is named after Frank and Vicki Fertitta.
