Get ready for Kornblau Field, opens 8/31 with NSU at ODU

August 29, 2019

     After years of planning, crunching numbers, a $10 million private fundraising effort and an intense nine months of construction, Old Dominion University will open the renovated Kornblau Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium when the Monarchs host Norfolk State at 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 31.

     The clam-shell like stands of old Foreman Field were demolished and replaced with two levels of modern seating.

 

Old Dominion University will open the renovated Kornblau Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium when the Monarchs host Norfolk State at 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 31.

 

     The stadium's $67.5 million makeover will give fans, students and alumni 16,000 new seats with back support and more leg room. There will also be new concession stands, restrooms and a new video board, in addition to three ribbon boards.

     The stadium's west side, which is topped by a new press box, is 94 feet tall. That's nearly twice as high as Foreman Field.
