Planned soccer stadium at University of Michigan will seat 1,800

By Jim Knight

An architectural rendering of a $6 million soccer stadium planned for the University of Michigan teams was released Wednesday. The Michigan Board of Regents will meet Thursday, and an item to move forward on the project is on the agenda.

The design by Jickling Lyman Powell Associates Inc. was approved in June and it calls for a 20,000-square-foot building with seating for 1,800. Funding will come from athletic department resources and gifts. The project includes concessions, restrooms, a media area and two team locker rooms.

To play at the Big House, they need to expand the field a little bit, taking out the front rows of seats. They are looking into this currently as Detroit/Ann Arbor/East Lansing are potential cities for the US bid for the World Cup.

Where is this supposed to go? Did you know and forget to tell us? Or did the release from UM not say? If the latter, did you ask?
