STORRS, Conn. -
UConn basketball fans now have a chance to become part of history by adding their name to the newly-created Wall of Champions in the Werth Family UConn Basketball Champions Center.
The facility is the first building at UConn financed entirely by private donations and $33 million dollars has been committed thus far towards the $37 million fundraising goal.
Husky fans can leave their legacy in the building on the Wall of Champions as the finishing touches are put on the building with displays, graphics and artwork depicting the proud history of both the men’s and women’s program.
A gift of $1,500, representing UConn’s combined 15 national championships, will secure a place on the Wall of Champions.
This 78,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility boasts practice gyms, locker rooms and coaches offices, as well as study areas, video rooms and sports medicine and strength training spaces. The Werth Family UConn Basketball Champions Center, one of the preeminent basketball facilities in the country, opened in October 2014.
