Alabama State University okays on-campus football stadium

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - It is going to happen. Alabama State University says it will build a football stadium on-campus.

During Friday's board of trustees meeting, Dr. William Harris told WSFA 12 News it is happening, and they have started the process.

"We have the land available, we have the site picked out. Football is going to be returned to the campus of Alabama State University campus and we are talking about in a matter of a few years," Harris said.

The board is currently preparing bond documents to fund the project.

The ASU football team currently plays at Cramton Bowl.
