SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — Salisbury University will break ground on $19 million in upgrades to the school’s stadium this winter.
Sea Gull Stadium houses the university’s football, field hockey and the men’s and women’s lacrosse programs.
The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that the project currently includes 4,800 seats and year-round locker room facilities for the four teams. It currently has 2,800 seats. The renovation also will add bathrooms, an athletic training clinic, ticket booths, concession stands and storage.
Michael Vienna, the athletic director, says no taxpayer money is being used for the upgrades. The money comes from institutional funds.
Vienna says it’s the largest athletic project the university has taken on in 25 years, if not longer.
