Construction set for next year on UofA stadium

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Construction on the University of Arizona football stadium's north end zone could begin as soon as January after the school's athletic director confirmed that the school received three donations for the project.

The Arizona Daily Star reports the structure beyond the north end zone will house a club area, football offices, weight room, medical treatment center, lockers and cafeteria in about 80,000 interior square feet.

One gift of $11 million for the project came from an anonymous donor. Athletic director Greg Byrne says the donor is a long-time supporter of UA athletics.

The new facility is expected to replace the current football offices at UofA's McKale Center.
