ETSU is in the process of selecting a location for the football stadium.
Joe Smith, executive assistant to the president for university relations, said that the university is entertaining two potential locations for the stadium.
"The two possible locations for the football stadium that are being considered are the one near the facilities management building and the other at the practice fields near the soccer stadium," Smith said.
Smith said that the university estimates that construction of the football stadium will cost the university about $18 million; however, the design of the facility is still in the planning stage.
"East Tennessee State University is continuing to evaluate possible sites for the new football stadium as well as discuss potential designs for the facility," Smith said.
"The stadium will be located in one of two locations, and though the design has not been finalized, we envision a brick, 'bowl-shape' structure that will seat approximately 10,000 fans and will feature amenities that will be open to the campus throughout the year."
Smith said that more information will be made available after the university decides on the design and location for the football stadium.
