NEW stadium construction
Was wondering if anyone has information about the timeline or schedule for the teardown of the east side of SB Ballard. Is it still a go for the East side to be completed before the start of next years football season )2017-18) It maybe the west side and not the east side they plan to do first, I am not sure?

I was under the impression that construction will begin immediately after the final home game next season.

This is correct. Wrecking ball shall swing after the final home whistle next season.

I understood that Norfolk State was to be the first game in the new stadium. They had said it would be constructed in two phases over two seasons. They have scheduled NSU to open the stadium for the 1st game in 2019. I would have thought they needed to start after the end of this year.

I found the article. It is to start after next year...thanks.

Yep. It's pretty good to have NSU as the first game, so as a just-in-case scenario if running a bit behind, we could always move the game to their field.

Honestly, I think they would delay the game until later in the season before sacrificing a home game to an FCS team.

Or finish the last two games on the road and get started a couple of weeks early. Not ideal for the team, but it might help to get a head start. Last season we had one home game in the whole month of Oct.
