A new skyway will protect fans from Park Street traffic by routing them from the University Center to the new Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium when the fall athletic season opens.
With brick going up on the stadium′s exterior walls and the rooflines taking shape, the gables and other architectural features are becoming more defined. The facility will have the capacity to serve 5,000, and will include an athletic support building with new locker rooms, coaches′ offices, training room, classroom and weight room. The second floor will include media and press boxes, a hospitality room and Thunder Club deck, along with rooms for overnight visitors which will convert to private suites on game days.
New lights will expand practice times for student–athletes and allow for the viewing of night games and matches. The stadium will support men and women′s soccer, men and women′s lacrosse, football and women′s field hockey which will be added in the fall.
