The Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York, has broken ground on a $30 million stadium that will provide a home venue for the men's and women's lacrosse and soccer teams.

The 38,828-square-foot facility will seat 1,180, with additional capacity in the hospitality room, along with standing room.

Amenities in the new stadium will include team locker rooms; a training room with two large hot and cold tubs, taping tables, and exam tables; media suite; concession area; hospitality room with glass viewing wall; and outdoor concourse.

The facility is expected to open in fall 2025.

“This achievement marks a pivotal moment in our journey to revitalize our athletic facilities and provide unparalleled experiences for our student-athletes, campus community, alumni, and the vibrant Rochester community,” said Jacqueline Nicholson, RIT’s executive director of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Once the stadium is completed, the school would be in a position to bid to host NCAA regional events while also providing the greater Rochester community with another athletic venue, The Rochester Business Journal reports.

The architects are LaBella Associates and Populous, and the construction manager is Pike Construction Services
