ODU stadium expansion

#21

Reading about the ODU expansion is like a window into another world. A world of planning, communicati​on and accountabil​ity. There is a better way people. Don’t forget it. There is always hope.

Interesting they aren’t expanding capacity, considering how successful they have been with ticket sales.[/quote]
In spite of the original plan for a 23,000 seat stadium as well as a consultant calling for 25,000, seems like several factors causing ODU to scale back.

Among them are decreasing enrollment at the school, numerous no-shows at games, as well as the national trend of falling attendance.

And the cut back isn’t just stadium capacity but amenities as well. Of course, from what I’ve read, conveniences at the current facility are spartan at best and non-existent at worst.

Went to the ODU game this year. Their stadium was not bad at all. Sure, I used a port-a-john and survived. Didn’t wait in line and the stadium was 90 percent full. It was not as nice as the Rich but much nicer than I would have imagined having read about it. Their tailgate areas were much better than ours by a long shot. Everything was right around the stadium, instead of sectioned off around the campus like ours. Really added to the atmosphere.

Nice stadium, nice video. One thing I noticed is that they only showed clips of ODU winning. We need some of those, and then other things will fall into place. Take us to the promised land Coach Healy.
