Mara-Tisch Practice Fields

The practice fields on the Western Avenue side of campus were renovated in June 1996 with 263,000 square feet of two-inch thick athletic sod. The irrigation system was refurbished, and the area was surrounded with a 3,100-foot chain-link fence.  

The practice fields also served as the summer home to the New York Giants, who held their National Football League summer training camp at UAlbany from 1996-2012.
