Albany, N.Y. - The University at Albany athletic department has launched its Multi-Sport Complex Webcam, allowing Great Danes fans to easily follow the construction of Bob Ford Field. The camera will take pictures now through the end of construction and will provide images that are archived throughout the process.
Using the camera control on the left side of the screen, visitors can zoom in and out and select archived images from the calendar. In addition, fans can click on the time lapse link and get an accelerated view of the process.
The University broke ground on the Multi-Sport Complex in April 2012. The project is phase I of a three-phase plan, replacing UAlbany's current football venue with a state of the art athletic and recreational complex. The complex, which is east of the SEFCU Arena, on the site of the current soccer field, is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013. Upon completion, the complex will be home to the Great Danes' NCAA Division I football and men's and women's soccer teams. Phase II includes the creation of a synthetic turf field designed for year-round recreational, intramural and club sport activities by the student body. This field will be located east of the campus tennis courts and south of Dutch Quad, and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2012. Phase III will include repairs and upgrades to the track and field facilities, which is currently housed in the existing football venue.
