Over the years, a number of plans have been submitted to provide permanent athletic facilities on the campus. Here are some previously published designs:
The most ambitious of Georgetown's athletics plans of the 1920's involved the construction of a 25,000 seat amphitheater for football games and a 7,000 seat gymnasium modeled on The Palestra in Philadelphia. Neither were funded. (Photo Credit: Georgetown College Journal)
One of the first published designs for the MSF, described in the 2002 football media guide as "the most significant undertaking in the history of Georgetown Athletics."
A variation on the above design provided for a dedicated press box and sample drawings of the fan entrance and club seating were also circulated.
One design, perhaps based on the one above, remains the most visually appealing, even if the cost wasn't.
The 2004 football media guide announced this design had been approved by the Georgetown board of directors.
Another revision to the MSF was published online in 2008, dropping the double-deck seating and "Gothic portals" previously proposed and considering simple bleachers instead of dedicated seating.
