Upper Iowa University receives funds for stadium renovation

FAYETTE (KWWL) -

Upper Iowa University has received funds to remodel the football stadium in Fayette. The $7.5 Million gift comes from Steve and Diane Harms of West Des Moines. The gift completes the first phase of fundraising for the project.

The new design includes a new score board, increase seating, and an all weather field.

"The press box alone is 10 times the size of our current press box and can be used for a variety of purposes year-round," said Wendell Snodgrass, UIU Vice President for Advancement. "The versatility of the design enables UIU to use the press box and concession stands for events on the soccer field as well, and the lighted, all-weather field also can be used for high school and community events."

The university says the project will now move to the public phase of fundraising.
