On March 13, Westminster College in Fulton, Mo., made a surprise announcement to students, unveiling plans to build a new $3.5 million athletic stadium. The new stadium will be located within the college’s existing sports complex, which includes a training facility, softball and baseball fields, tennis courts, football fields, and soccer fields.
The new athletic stadium will replace the current field with a new turf field and a 2,000-seat stadium. It will be used for Westminster and local community events. A walking track around the new field for use by students and the public is also planned.
Phase I of the KWK Architects-designed project will include new turf, a scoreboard, and lights on the field and is expected to be completed by the start of the 2018 football season. Phase II will include the construction of the bleachers, press box, concessions, and restrooms, and is slated for completion in summer 2019.
