Two cool things you'll notice if you blow this pic up on a desktop screen: the "Welcome to S.B. Ballard Stadium/Home of the Monarchs" signage above the press box and the brick facade inside the stadium.

There are a lot of nice looking details with these renderings

Like those fans that brought actual picnic tables to their tailgate. =]

Will all the canopies match like the picture? Banks aren't going to like that.

This stadium is not going to look anywhere close to the Populous design when Phase 2 and/or 3 is completed.

Major Stadium Announcement
The area at top is that press boxes? Could easily be turned into suites. Also the breezeway underneath looks like a perfect place for vendors and restrooms.

That area underneath ends up being another concourse in another rendition right?

Either way I would love to see that area extended out over the entrance in the future to have a larger open space to watch subset on water and have bars and standing tables, live music etc

RE: Major Stadium Announcement
does anyone know if they have the completed rendering of the stadium after the phases are completed? curious to how it would look at 30,000 capacity if that is at all possible with this particular stadum. also if there will be more tiers to the glass portion of the press box for luxury suites or event space.

RE: Major Stadium Announcement
My uninformed guess is we can get to 35k with expansion. They switched to bench with chair back. That'll fit a few more in. I'd love to see 37k. Thats the perfect number for us imo

Getting pretty pumped. For me we can't teardown Foreman Field quick enough.

RE: Major Stadium Announcement
That seems like a mighty big press box for a G5 school. I wonder if they could put some suites on the ends to raise money for the end zone and scoreboard?

I think this stadium looks good. Some ODU fans are getting caught too much in the capacity number.

At least you guys have a seat at the table of the supposedly inevitable southeastern regional G5 conference to be formed sometime in our lifetimes.

Very short term thinking. In 5 years we would have been down to 1 smelter and potentially been almost out of US Steel producers. If you think the costs are a little higher now, imagine the day we are totally dependent of foreign steel and aluminum. It is a national security issue.

The article said it was press box and coaches box together.

Fake news. This problem was in place well before anybody was talking about tariffs. More to do with the hurricanes and booming economy driving skyrocketing demand for construction.

I agree with DaBig.... I’m delighted they’re going to start digging on this project instead of just farting around.

New is New!!!

Let’s go Monarchs!

RE: Major Stadium Announcement
Makes sense now. At the spring game, I noticed the route of the proposed foundation location for excavation. To give you a visual how close the stadium will be to the current field. The proposed foundation is right at the edge of the fence that goes around the playing field (astroturf). If the press release is corrected there will be a sight line 10ft above the field, it's going to look like this.
