R. Kirk Landon Football Fieldhouse

FIU's new football headquarters is named after Trustee R. Kirk Landon, in appreciation of his $1 million donation to Golden Panthers football.

The two-story, 50,000-square-foot R. Kirk Landon Football Fieldhouse is located on the west end of FIU stadium.

“This is just the latest example of Mr. Landon’s contributions to FIU and its athletic programs,” said FIU Director of Athletics Pete Garcia. “His leadership and financial support have helped us take FIU to Division I status and build a successful athletics program. We thank him for helping make the fieldhouse a reality.”

The fieldhouse’s highlight is a 14,000-square foot, clear-span weight room that will be used by all FIU student-athletes for strength and conditioning.

The first floor also will house an equipment room, full-service athletic training facility, ticket office, merchandise area and 8,500-square-feet of locker rooms for student-athletes and coaches. The reception area will include an Athletics Hall of Fame.

The fieldhouse’s second floor will include coaches’ offices, a theater-style team meeting room and six breakout rooms overlooking the field. These rooms also open to an outdoor deck that will be used for recruiting and game-day suites.

“Trustee Landon’s ongoing support is crucial as we build our athletics program at FIU,” said FIU President Modesto A. Maidique. “Athletics will be key in helping FIU achieve national prominence.”

Landon is the president of two charitable organizations, the Kirk Foundation and the Kirk A. and Dorothy P. Landon Foundation. He served as CEO of American Bankers Insurance Group until 1995 and chairman of its Board of the Directors until his retirement in 1999.

He is actively involved in community philanthropy and serves on the boards of the Zoological Society of Florida, Arts for Learning and the Community Partnership for the Homeless. Landon's involvement with FIU dates back to the University's earliest days, when he served on the University’s 1972 advisory board and the University Founders Council.

In 2004, Mr. Landon made what was then the single largest donation from an individual in FIU’s history to create the R. Kirk Landon Undergraduate School of Business.
