Convergence Design provided sports architecture design services for the new football stadium at Alabama State University in Montgomery. The project is the capstone of a major campus capital project that saw the redevelopment of the east end of the urban ASU campus. The stadium terminates a new east-west campus mall identified in a recent campus master plan with a new entry plaza that faces into the existing campus.
The stadium also faces an interstate highway, giving ASU a new public face to traffic passing the campus on the interstate.
The stadium features a capacity of 26,000, with expansion capability up to 50,000 spectators. A variety of seating options on three decks include berm seating, traditional bleachers, club seats, loge seating, suites, and party terraces in the east end zone. A sunscreen canopy provides shading for most of the spectators on the south sideline during day games.
