On November 14, 2013, the University released plans to build a football and lacrosse stadium, slated for completion by the fall 2015 football season. However, the university then walked back on their promises and instead recruited three more classes of athletes with false hopes of having an on campus stadium.[2] The stadium will be designed by Wagner Murray Architects and Echo Artz. The stadium is slated to seat 5,000 while including a two story pressbox, and full matrix video board. UF will use this stadium as opposed to playing at Findlay High School's high school stadium: Donnell Stadium.
