Very cool, this is great to see.
Now it's time for Kyle Krause to kick in $20M and make this stadium amazing!
I wonder how many it will hold with the bubble on it. UNI might need to get a little nervous about state football.
The real question here: is this thing going to knock out the West End?
I highly doubt it. It looks like it will be between 25th and 24th. The USPS office is right by West End and I doubt Drake owns that land.
Didn't even think about this..
Just googled what this could look like. Boston College does this:
I hope it can make that happen.
With only 4000 seats total in the facility? Seems doubtful this could do state football.
Not to mention parking...it would be a nightmare in mid-November to try to park that many cars in that area! Bad enough in April and May for the Drake Relays and state track.
Really? I wonder what the attendance figures are for each class and each round at the dome?
Valley Stadium holds 8,000. I've never been to a big game there but I assume 4,000 is nowhere near enough.
I guess I could see the problem if it was a 4A DSM Metro vs DSM Metro in the semi or final which probably happens all of the time.
I would wager that Horner is not our new women's soccer coach given this recent development. An on campus soccer stadium makes Drake a much better job than it was.
Yeah, I think several of the metro area schools have home stadiums 4k or larger.
I'm guessing the bubble would be inside the stands like the Boston College video. It doesn't matter how many seats there are if they are outside the bubble. It will probably be used more for recreational events than spectator events.
I believe one of the stipulations of the USL stadium is that it has to be located downtown.
They've said that, but I wonder if that is a actual requirement or just a negotiating tactic.
The one time my hometown made the state finals I would estimate there were more than 4,000 there between the schools, and this was class 1A.
There would also be the issue with the games being played back to back clearing out the fans and bringing in the next group. This would be a big cluster ****.
They would also need extra locker rooms to accommodate more than 2 teams.
I'm fairly certain that every session draws far more than 4k. The 4A semis and title game usually hit between 10k-12k. Not to mention locker room and media facilities.
The playoffs are in the perfect place right where they are...
