The Alfie Norville Practice Facility

Eight years ago, Allan Norville (BS ’60) had a vision: to provide our student-athletes with unmatched opportunities for growth by transforming Loyola athletics. When the Norville Center for Intercollegiate Athletics opened its doors in 2011, it ushered in a new era in athletics, and students embraced a renewed sense of pride and energy–pride that has filled not only every area of student life but also the hearts and minds of Loyolans everywhere.

Ever prescient, Al once again sees the future as he lends his support to construct a new building to be named in honor of his late wife, Alfena: The Alfie Norville Practice Facility, or simply, The Alfie.

When completed, The Alfie will offer a state-of-the-art space, allowing flexibility in usage that will enhance team building, chemistry, and overall performance in every program. The Alfie also will enhance the Rambler brand, serving as a tremendous recruiting advantage to secure top-level talent year in and year out.

Name a space in The Alfie

When the Alfie opens its doors in summer 2019, it will fill a critical need for Loyola’s student-athletes, providing the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs dedicated space to practice. Leave your lasting legacy on Loyola Rambler athletics by funding one of many custom opportunities in The Alfie that can be made in your name or dedicated to someone special, with gifts payable over five years. Several of these attractive new spaces are featured in the photos above.
