Albany -- After 2 years of waiting Albany State University is celebrating its new stadium. The party kicked off Friday with a pep rally pumping up a crowd of excited ASU Fans.
With a snip of a ribbon and some cheers from those who do it best Albany State University's dreams of have a complete stadium were fulfilled and University President Dr.Portia Shields crossed off one of the goals on her list.
"I knew what we had to do to get to this point but in addition to that I was given a mandate,'bring us a stadium'," says Sheilds.
And that's just what the supporters of this project did, working to build a seven million dollar stadium that will seat 10,000 cheering fans. Fans that are already revved up for this season.
"I'm very proud, excellent as my daughter says I breath and eat Albany State," says Gene Lynn who is apart of the Class of 1966.
"My sister went here a couple of years ago before the stadium and now we are winning games and I'm excited," says one Freshman student.
This stadium isn't just for the University it will also act as venue for the community but it's finally a place that the Golden Rams can call home.
"We played in other stadiums for so long and now we have place to call our own," says ASU Football Player Chris Henderson.
And its a place excited football fans are hoping the team will bring in the wins.
The ASU Golden Rams will square off against Miles College Saturday inside the new stadium.
