Savannah State University held a ribbon cutting on September 29 for the newly renovated T.A. Wright Stadium.
Savannah State students voted in 2009 to pay an extra fee each semester to fund construction of the new Student Union, and later agreed to also fund the $6 million renovation of the T.A. Wright Stadium.
The facility is named in honor of Theodore Wright who served as the Tiger’s head football coach from 1947-1949.
The completed stadium features seating for 8,000 patrons; new team locker rooms, concession areas and bathrooms; a 500-seat student section; a resurfaced track and a turf field.
