Troy University has unveiled plans for a Veterans Memorial Stadium expansion that will enclose the facility’s north end.
At an estimated cost of $24 million, the project will lead to the installation of a new training center. Following a trend in college football stadium design, the center will be built in a way that allows for, more than 400 club seats, a rooftop terrace, and a videoboard.
According to head coach Neal Brown, the upgrades—which are set to be complete by the start of the 2018 season—will improve the fan and team experience at Veterans Memorial Stadium. More from the Montgomery Advertiser:
“It’s gonna be loud because now we’re going to be bowled in,” Brown said. “The jumbotron is going to add another piece for the fans.”
A lot will be going on inside the facility when it’s not game day. Plans include a first-floor strength and conditioning area and nutrition station; a second floor locker room, sports medicine facility, team lounge and pool; and a third floor filled with coaches’ offices, meeting rooms, video services and a recruiting lounge. The administration will remain at the current field house.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the Veterans Memorial Stadium renovations will be held on Saturday.
