Manley Field House is a multi-purpose Archbold Gymnasium, which had served for almost sixty years prior.

Manley Field House hosted the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) in 1976 as well as a semifinal game of the 1977 ECAC South Region Tournament.[1][2][3]

Renovations

On September 26, 2007, ground was broken for the new Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center, which will house practice courts, weight rooms, locker rooms and offices for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. This will free up Manley Field House, which is the current practice facility for the teams. Additionally, for the 2007-2008 season, the women’s basketball team will play all of its home games in the Carrier Dome for the first time. With basketball out of Manley Field House, the arena will be converted into an indoor practice facility for football and men’s and women’s lacrosse.

Due to the climate of Syracuse, the University had lost a recruiting edge to other schools with newer football facilities. The field house will be retrofitted with Field Turf and will provide ample practice space for the outdoor teams, which usually fight for space (usually only half of a field) in the Carrier Dome in late-winter/early-spring when the basketball court is still set up. Full glass windows will be installed and the seating will be removed, creating room for nearly a full-sized football field. The entrance to the sports complex will be upgraded to create a sleek new look, joining the new basketball with the renovated field house and the Iocolano-Petty Football Complex.

On January 27, 2008, a temporary AstroTurf-like "carpet" was installed to provide immediate practice space for the outdoor teams until the permanent installation takes place.
