UPDATE 12/22/09: Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium expansion is underway!!

The expansion for the east endzone of Dowdy-Ficklen stadium began on December 14, 2009. Progress is well underway. If you would like to view a live shot of the endzone, check out WITN’s webcam. Also, bids were made on the removal of the scoreboard. They varied from $7,500 to $80,000. Of course ECU chose the $7,500 bid.

We will continue to keep you up-to-date as we find out more info.
