Arlotta Family Lacrosse Stadium Map it!

Arlotta Family Lacrosse Stadium

Arlotta Stadium is the home for the Notre Dame men's and women's lacrosse programs. Construction on the stadium began in August of 2008 and was completed in the fall of 2009.

The state-of-the-art facility features lights and an artificial turf field and has a permanent seating capacity of approximately 2,500 in the west grandstand, including VIP boxes flanking the main team entrance. Additional seating is available on a grass berm located on the east end of the grounds.

The stadium offers upgraded and expanded restroom and concession areas, elevator access and handicapped reserved seating on the main concourse level, as well as numerous amenities for both Fighting Irish lacrosse programs (expansive locker rooms with custom-made wood lockers, spacious team lounges with flat-screen plasma TVs and high-speed Internet access, and a fully-equipped athletic training center).

    The press box has over 20 seats for staff and media in addition to three broadcast booths, which are valuable for the national coverage both programs receive.

    Arlotta Stadium opened its doors on Oct. 16, 2009, as the Fighting Irish men's team played host to the Iroquois National Team in an exhibition contest. The stadium's official dedication took place the following day.

    The Notre Dame women's squad faced Dartmouth on March 7, 2010, in the first regular-season contest held at Arlotta Stadium. The Irish men played their first regular-season game at the facility on March 16, 2010, against Denver.

    On April 28, 2012, the Notre Dame men played host to Syracuse in front of a maximum-capacity crowd of 4,522. The Irish men also have played two NCAA tournament contests at Arlotta Stadium.

    The stadium is named after Notre Dame graduate John Arlotta, president and chief executive officer of Denver-based Coram Inc. He and his wife, Bobbie, pledged the lead gift toward the stadium. The Arlotta children - Mindy, Andy and Jon - also pledged an additional gift from The Arlotta Family Foundation toward the project. In addition to their generous donation, alumni and friends of the lacrosse programs donated over two million dollars.

    Arlotta Stadium is part of the long-term athletics facilities master plan that has already added new stadiums for softball, soccer, track and field, plus three relocated football practice fields (two of them artificial turf), all in the area east and southeast of Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. The tennis programs also will add a new stadium in that area.

    Arlotta Stadium replaced Moose Krause Stadium, which served as the outdoor venue for both lacrosse programs. The teams also have the ability to play/practice indoors at the Loftus Sports Center.

Guglielmino Athletics Complex Map it!

Guglielmino Athletics Complex

The University of Notre Dame is enjoying its eighth full season with access to the sparkling Guglielmino Athletics Complex, adjacent to the Loftus Sports Center on the east side of campus. Affectionately referred to as "The Gug" (pronounced Goog), it houses the football practice-week locker rooms, coaches' offices and meeting rooms in addition to enhanced sports medicine, strength and conditioning and weight room equipment areas for all Notre Dame student-athletes.

The Gug, underwritten with a gift from the late Don F. Guglielmino and his wife Flora, provides the Notre Dame football team with one of the top facilities in the nation. The building gives the Irish football team a central location for post-practice and pre-practice routines as well as daily positional meetings. Before The Gug opened, the Irish football facilities were spread between Notre Dame Stadium, the Joyce Center and the Loftus Sports Center.

The 96,000-square-foot complex was designed and built by McShane Construction of Chicago. Interior design and banners were produced by ZeDesign of Dayton, Ohio. Groundbreaking took place on May 5, 2004.

    The first floor of the Guglielmino Complex features the 25,000-square foot Haggar Fitness Center (gift of Ed and Patty Haggar, Joe and Isabell Haggar) with the latest state-of-the-art equipment that all student-athletes can use on a daily basis. The 8,300-square foot Loftus Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center (a gift of John and Julie Loftus) services all of Notre Dame's student-athletes. The athletic training facility is a state-of-the-art area with two new swim exercise pools - one of which includes a treadmill at the bottom. The facility also houses the athletic training staff and gives that department significant office space, in addition to increased area for rehabilitation.

    Also located on the first floor is the Allen Equipment Room (a gift of Marty and Sue Allen) which houses the football equipment staff and storage facility used for both practices and competition.

    The Haggar Fitness Center is perhaps the most eye-catching feature of The Gug, as the previous fitness center has been expanded to twice its size. The Haggar Fitness Center is shared by both the Guglielmino Complex and the Loftus Center and services all of Notre Dame's 26 varsity athletic sports.

    The fitness complex features more than 250 pieces of weight training equipment, six plasma television screens, a state-of-the-art sound system, a 50-yard track for speed workouts and a 45x18-yard Prestige Turf field for team stretching exercises and workouts.

    Locker rooms for both the football student-athletes and coaches also are contained on the first floor, as well as a player's lounge and nine team position group meeting rooms.

    The Romano Family Locker Room (a gift of D.J. "Buddy" and Florence Romano) provides the players instant access to the practice fields, fitness center and Loftus. The locker room houses 125 spacious lockers and six private showers.

    The Isban Auditorium (a gift of Leonard and JoAnn Isban) measures 3,800 square feet with 150 theatre-style, football-player-sized seats and theater-quality audio-visual equipment, including a 30-foot screen.

    The second floor houses the Smith Family Office Suites (gift of the Smith family in honor of Francis W. and Rita C. Smith) in a 7,800-square foot area, with head coach Brian Kelly's area overlooking the Cartier Field practice complex. The assistant coaches are arranged along offensive and defensive hallways, while the video coordinator's compound sits in the center of the coaches' offices and is linked into every room in the building. There also is a recruiting lounge on the second floor, which features a balcony overlooking the strength and conditioning complex and a panoramic window with a view of Notre Dame's central campus.

    The head coach's suite is located at the far southern tip on the second floor of the Guglielmino Athletics Complex. Kelly has a large reception area, a private bathroom, shower facility and two offices - one for official meetings, and in another a private area for film work.

    The Morse Recruiting Lounge (a gift of Jim and Leah Morse) is one of the signature features of The Gug. Located on the second floor above the main entrance, the recruiting lounge offers a beautiful view of campus and a glimpse of Notre Dame's football excellence - there are 11 national championship banners hanging in the room to commemorate Notre Dame's 11 consensus national titles. The recruiting lounge offers a balcony glimpse of a signature two-story mural near the main entrance of the Guglielmino Athletics Complex.

    The aforementioned mural is just one of several graphic presentations in The Gug. Along with the stunning two-story mural, there are trophy cases honoring Notre Dame's national championships, Heisman Trophy winners, All-Americans, walk-ons and all-pros in the NFL.

    "Though Don spent just a year at Notre Dame as a student, he had a great love for our University," Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., Notre Dame's former president, said. "This exceptional gift forever will be a testimony to Don's whole-hearted embrace of the Notre Dame spirit."

    After the death of his father, Guglielmino transferred to Stanford University in 1940 due to pressing family needs. He then left school to enlist in the Army Air Corps and serve in the Pacific theatre during World War II. After the war, Guglielmino returned to his hometown of Glendale, Calif., where he became a successful businessman. He founded Newhall Hardware Company in 1947 and helped found the Santa Clarita National Bank in the mid-1960s. He served as the bank's chairman of the board until it was sold, first to Security Pacific National Bank in 1990 and later acquired by Bank of America.

    The Guglielmino Complex serves an important role in the development of all 26 Notre Dame varsity sports, in addition to providing the football team with one of the most remarkable facilities in the nation.

Loftus Sports Center Map it!

Loftus Sports Center

The Loftus Sports Center is entering its 26th full year of service for the University of Notre Dame athletic program in 2012-2013. One of the most integral athletic buildings on campus, the Loftus Center serves as an indoor practice facility for several Irish varsity sports (football, track and field, rowing, women's soccer, men's soccer, women's lacrosse, men's lacrosse, baseball and softball) and hosts competition for both the track and field and lacrosse teams.

Dedicated on April 23, 1988, the Loftus Center saw its first football team practice on September 30th of that season. Designed for use by all Notre Dame athletic teams as well as students, faculty and staff, the $6.3 million center measures 614 feet by 210 feet and stands tucked in a forested area of campus just north of Cartier Field and Moose Krause Stadium.

The Loftus Center also shares the Haggar Fitness Center with the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, completed in the summer of 2005. The Haggar Fitness Center ranks as one of the most comprehensive free-weight and exercise machine facilities in the nation. It features a three-lane track for speed workouts, a 40-yard Prestige Turf field for team workouts and over 30 free weight areas and 40 exercise machines.

    The Loftus Center also features Meyo Field, a 100-yard Prestige Turf field with endzones, surrounded by a six-lane track one fifth of a mile long - making it as large as any indoor track in the nation.

    Meyo field sees extensive use by most of Notre Dame's 26 varsity sports throughout the year. Early spring home lacrosse games are held in the Loftus Center along with several top indoor track meets each winter.

    The lengthy straightaway and wide turns of the Meyo Track provides runners with optimum conditions for competition at NCAA record pace. The facility's Mondo track surface is respected as the best track surface in the world. Irish track and field head coach Joe Piane has wasted little time in making use of the outstanding track, scheduling two top-rated invitational meets during the indoor season. Both the Meyo Invitational and Alex Wilson Invitational attract outstanding fields each season.

    Ellerbe Becket Architects of Minneapolis designed the building and Casteel Construction of South Bend was the general contractor. The maximum height over Meyo Field in the Loftus Sports Center is 54 feet and temperature and humidity are kept at 60. A mezzanine seating area accommodates 300 people and also serves as a dry land training era for the Notre Dame's women's rowing team. The Loftus Center is a gift of John R. Loftus of St. Charles, Ill., a member of Notre Dame's basketball team in 1944, 1948 and 1949.

    Loftus is chief executive officer of JRL Investments, a real estate investment and construction firm and a member of the Mendoza College of Business Administration advisory council. The Dixon, Ill., native and has wife, Julie, are parents of six children, including William and James - both Notre Dame graduates.

    The Haggar Fitness Center is a gift of the Haggar family, including Edmond R. Haggar, a 1938 Notre Dame graduate who is retired as chairman of the board of the Haggar Apparel Company in Dallas, Texas, and is a life trustee of the University. Also part of the gift was Joseph M. Haggar, Jr., a 1968 Notre Dame graduate and retired president of Haggar Apparel Company. Also part of the Haggar family, Mrs. Rosemary Haggar Vaughn, a daughter of the late J. M. Haggar, Sr., is a former executive director of the Haggar Foundation.

    Meyo Field is a gift of Raymond D. Meyo, a 1964 graduate who is president and chief operating officer of Meyo Worldwide Inc. Meyo is a member of the College of Engineering advisory council, and was joined in the benefaction by his wife, Marie.
