Tennessee State Preps Grand Reopening of Hale Stadium
The countdown is on in Nashville, as Tennessee State University prepares for the grand reopening of its campus football facility, Hale Stadium. “The Hole” will boast $1 million in renovated and expanded seating, scoreboards, video displays and more for September 15, with the Tigers will host the school’s first on-campus football game since 1998.
Following appeals by alumni and students, the administration obtained Tennessee Board of Regents approval and the upgrades got underway in December 2011 with the demolition of the 60-year-old ROTC building at the south end of the stadium. Work has since kept pace with completion deadline.
Tennessee State is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year.
