Hurricanes Become Partners Of New $30M Practice Facility
The Hurricanes will have a "new practice rink" in '20, as they will be "partners in the ice-skating facility being constructed at the Wake Competition Center" in Morrisville, N.C., according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER. The team will use the new complex as their "permanent practice facility, with a locker room, weight-lifting area and coaches' offices as part of their leased 12,000 square feet." Ammons Building President Jeff Ammons, whose company developed the Wake Competition Center, said that the facility will cost $30M to construct. Hurricanes President & GM Don Waddell said that team would "spend millions" in their financial commitment to the project. Ammons also said that the project received $3M from the "local hotels/motels and prepared foods tourism tax allocation." He added that the facility "should open in May or June and be ready" for the team's training camp next season (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 12/7).
