KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Construction is underway for the new Indoor Football Facility at the University of Kansas. 

The facility is part of the university's Raise The Chant project, which focuses on the football program. 

"We've done a tremendous amount of benchmarking and thorough preparation since we announced this project last fall," University of Kansas Athletic Directors Sheahon Zenger said. "It is extremely rewarding - to us and to our fans - to see construction fences up and shovels in the ground. This state-of-the-art facility is a necessary component of our commitment to enable our football program to compete successfully in the Big 12 Conference."

The facility will be about 89,000 square feet. 

The project was kicked off following a $50 million gift from KU alumnus David Booth.
