Product Description

Built in 1997, Dick Price Stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000, and is recognized as one of the largest sports and entertainment venues in Hampton Roads. It is also one of the largest Division I Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA) on-campus football stadiums in terms of capacity.

The stadium was constructed at a cost of $12.2 million. Located on the southeast end of campus, the stadium has a brick facade, an artificial turf surface, an all-weather, eight-lane rubberized track, a two-story press box and concession areas located throughout the stadium’s ground level.

In the summer of 2018, the stadium’s playing surface underwent a complete overhaul. The natural grass surface, present since the stadium’s opening in 1997, was removed to install a top-of-the-line artificial turf field manufactured by Shaw Sports Turf.

The synthetic surface, a Spike Zone Pro 1.75” with Envirofill infill, included updated designs in the end zones, at the 50-yard line, and in the team areas between the 25-yard lines. The new surface allows the team to practice on the field during the season and allows the university to hold more events year-round without damaging the surface.

Capacity: 30,000

Tenant: Norfolk State Spartans (NCAA)
