Alabama unveiled their brand new Mal M. Moore Athletic Facility that cost a modest sum of $9 million. The facility created a lot of buzz on the Internet after it was first shown off, but now we are getting an even closer look at the facility thanks to a video tour from Jeff Springer (the Tide’s equipment manager), Amy Bragg (Director of Performance Nutrition) and Jeff Allen (Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Medicine).
Photos have done the Mal M. Moore Athletic Facility plenty of justice, but the video tour provides a closer look and really shows off just how incredible and unique the ‘Bama facility truly is.
The upgrades to Alabama’s state of the art facilities include (via Yahoo! Sports):
- Two pool tables
- Ping pong tables
- Two foosball tables
- An arcade
- A smoothie bar
- Jerseys from all of the NFL first round picks since Nick Saban took over
- A hydrotherapy area consisting of a hot and cool tub (they’re really pools)
- Flat screens everywhere you look
- New lockers with lock boxes and power cords to charge electronics
The new facilities will be used by all of the athletic programs
Here is the full video tour of the new facilities:
