Albany -- As Albany State continues registration and opens classes for fall semester, the new football stadium continues to take shape.

 The $5 million to build Phase One of the stadium came in from the state, city, and donations. Another $5 million is needed to complete the project to a ten thousand seat stadium with field house and community meeting room.

As the concrete is poured for the 5,500 seat home side of the stadium, fundraising to pay for the work are also underway.

Friends of A.S.U. will hold a Stadium Fundraising Dinner at the Civic Center August 29th. Tickets will be $50.00, as Albany State starts raising the money needed to make the stadium a reality.

Albany State President Dr. Portia Holmes Shields said "In order to make it state of the art, there are some things that we need that the budget will not bear at this time. So this will be critical for people to come. And yes fifty dollars is a lot of money, however the more fifty's you give, the better the stadium will look for the whole community."

The Rams will play their final home game this season in the new stadium, hosting Morehouse November 8th. Plans are for Albany State to complete the stadium project by August 2004.
