LU – Belleville to Begin Football Stadium Renovations Next Week
February 29, 2012
The Lindenwood – University Belleville Lynx football program will have a brand new stadium to call home during its inaugural season this fall. LU – Belleville has announced that Monday, March 5 will mark the groundbreaking for the new football stadium.
The original venue, a staple in the metro-east community, has been around since 1933. Formerly known as Township Stadium, the sports fixture will undergo significant changes beginning next week.
“We’re really excited to finally see the construction portion of the program begin,” said Director of Athletics, Scott Spinner. “A lot of planning has gone into this project and it’s a big deal for the University and the community.” The new stadium will include complete renovations on the field, sideline bleachers, press box and locker room. The state-of-the-art stadium will have a seating capacity of 4,129.
The 2.3 million dollar project will also feature a maroon and gray turf, distinctive characteristic not seen in most stadiums. Spinner looks for the new turf to be a unique attraction for the community and future student-athletes.
“The field is going generate a lot of publicity and serve our athletic program well,” said Spinner.
The renovated stadium is projected to be completed by July 15. The Football Lynx will kick off their inaugural season this fall.Related Items:
