Football Stadium to be Replaced

MidAmerica Nazarene University officials have announced that  Pioneer Football Stadium will not be utilized for the four scheduled home games of the 2012 fall season.  Safety concerns prompted the university to retain structural engineering consultants who after inspection have advised that use of the 30-year-old grandstands should be discontinued.

Arrangements for the demolition and removal of the current structures will soon be underway along with planning for the construction of new facilities. In addition to the replacement of spectator grandstands and support facilities, the renovation of its track and field complex is being considered.

MNU president, Dr. David Spittal stated, “Although we did not anticipate this issue, the safety of our students and guests is of primary importance to us.  We will use this as an opportunity to make needed improvements to our facilities and consider our future needs at the same time.”

University officials are reviewing alternative locations for the four home games scheduled for this fall and will make an announcement as soon as plans are complete.
