    What do you mean by "facility" here?

    Try again

    Антон посетил команду перед зданием.

    Do you know the question for the dative case? Or is it just a random choice again?

    facility means gym or sports gym or sports arena

    is the word facility neuter? I thought it was feminine because the russian word ends in 'a'.

    "Facility" does not have a gender. What Russian word do you mean? "Здание" (a building) ends in "e", as well as "приспособление" (which is not good, because it means an "appliance"/"device").
    facility means gym or sports gym or sports arena
    You can use "спортивный зал" (a gym in a building), "спортивная площадка" или "спортплощадка" (pitch), стадион "(an arena/stadium) or "спорткомплекс" ("спортивный комплекс") (a sports complex).
