Located one floor above the football locker room, the newly-renovated Sanghani Player Lounge is the perfect spot for the Hokies to relax, play video games, watch movies or simply unwind. Featuring arcade games galore, as well as ping pong and pool tables, the lounge comes complete with a refreshment station and a theatre room.
The 2021 renovation was made possible thanks to the generosity of Virginia Tech graduate and longtime donor Mehul Sanghani as part of a larger gift to Tech Athletics.
The entrance to the lounge includes a fully-immersive “Sandman Experience” replicating the gameday feel of walking through the Avery Tunnel and into Lane Stadium with sensors set to play Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” as players walk in.
Tech officials had envisioned the look and feel of a modern entertainment complex and player centric environment, which is exactly the vibe the Hokies now have in this updated space.
