MSA Sport worked with The Ohio State University Athletics department to plan for a series of improvements in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
A Team Effort
The original WHAC facility, built in the 1980’s and expanded in the early 2000’s, lacked the many amenities required to recruit and retain student-athletes for a football program of the caliber of the Buckeyes. Throughout late 2016 and early 2017 MSA Sport partnered with the Athletics Department, Men’s Football Coaching staff, and Facilities Operation and Development department to plan a renovation/expansion project for the WHAC. MSA Sport completed the documents in 2018, and construction occurred in 2018-2019.

The project provided renovation and expansion of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center’s East Wing and the improvements included: Renovations and expansion to the Dining Area for the football program, new food preparation kitchens, food serving areas, renovated and expanded student lounge and activity areas, multi-purpose athletic assessment and recovery facilities, recruit viewing and entertainment areas storage addition to support the indoor field, adding large glazed overhead doors to the Indoor Field to connect with the Outdoor Practice Area.
