More construction is underway on ASU stadium

March 16, 2004

Albany - Albany State plans to start construction April 1, 2004 on the field house and visitor stands at the new stadium.

ASU didn't play a single football game in the stadium last season, despite hopes players could hit the field by late October. ASU is taking out a loan for about $2,000,000 to complete the visitors stand and field house.

The "Friends of ASU" had been trying to raise money since the state legislature failed to approve the complete $10,000,000 needed for the stadium. Albany State officials say the stadium will be complete by August - in time for the home opener.
