WHAT: Mayor Michael Hancock will join Metropolitan State University of Denver leaders to celebrate the completion of the University’s $23.6 million Regency Athletic Complex at MSU Denver. The 13-acre facility includes baseball and softball diamonds, a soccer field, eight tennis courts and a multi-purpose fitness trail.
Among Division II athletics teams, the state-of-the-art complex is one of finest facilities available. It is home to six of the Roadrunners’ 16 sports including baseball, softball, men’s and women’s soccer, and men’s and women’s tennis. In addition to competition areas, the facility includes a 23,000 square-foot locker room and athletic training area. The complex will also provide health, sports and recreation opportunities to children and families in the surrounding neighborhoods and to downtown Denver businesses and residents.
The complex is the fourth MSU Denver-owned facility to be constructed as part of the University’s master plan. It follows the opening of the Center for Visual Art in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe, the Student Success Building, and the Hotel and Hospitality Learning Center along Auraria Parkway on the Auraria Campus.
