The Pirate Football Stadium has been under construction for months, so now that we're inching closer to game time in September we wanted to check in on renovations.
It's a big project for Dowdy Ficklen Stadium, worth 20 Million dollars in construction. We're talking seven thousand new seats, which pushes capacity to 50-thousand.
More than 10 thousand new chair backs for both sides of the stadium. Plus a scoreboard that's 2 to 3 times larger than then previous one and will be HD.
Construction is set to be complete August 15th.
The Pirates first kick-off is against Tulsa a few weeks later on September 5th.
ECU Athletics says construction is on time and on budget.
