Board Approves Construction of WTAMU’s On-Campus Football Stadium

Introduction:

West Texas A&M University’s proposed on-campus football stadium is one step closer to becoming a reality after The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents approved its construction during the Board’s regular meeting Thursday, April 19 in Prairie View.

The Board approved the construction with a project budget of $38,800,000 for construction services and related costs.

Features:

The Board approved the construction with a project budget of $38,800,000 for construction services and related costs. Of the appropriated amount, $32,500,000 will come from a student-approved increase in athletic fees, and the remaining amount is covered through Revenue Financing System Debt Proceeds and interest income. Construction is expected to begin in May and set for completion in August 2019.

A new building will provide locker rooms for the home team, visiting team and officials. The 8,500 stadium seats will be constructed in long arcs along the west and east sides with an estimated total capacity of 12,000 with overflow berm seating and standing room only space at the concourse level. The stadium will offer opportunities for future expansion of up to 14,000 permanent seats. A new video scoreboard structure is planned for the north end zone and a ribbon board system along the front of the east and west upper decks.
