Griffon Indoor Sports Complex
On July 21, 2010, the Griffon Indoor Sports Complex was completed and officially opened. The facility serves Griffon football, softball, baseball, soccer, men's golf and women's golf teams, and is the summer training camp home of the Kansas City Chiefs. The facility features a full 100-yard turf indoor field, a state-of-the-art locker room for the Griffon football team, which can accommodate up to 120 players, as well as coaches offices, a dedicated weight training facility for Griffon student-athletes, meeting rooms, a 120 seat theatre, equipment room and athletic training room. The facilities available to Griffon student-athletes rival those of any collegiate or professional sports organization.
Total cost of the building portion of the Griffon Indoor Sports Complex was $10.3 million.
The major "wow" factor of the facility is the indoor field portion of the complex. The field includes markings for football and soccer. Overhead netting allow the Griffon softball, baseball and golf teams to conduct practices if needed. The facility is large enough to accomodate a regulation softball field. Climate controll affords comfortable practice conditions 365 days a year.

This room is equipped with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment including two large projection television screens and surround sound.
The facility houses ten smart classrooms which are used by MWSU students and are also perfect for position meetings or other team functions.
