LIU Post’s renovated football stadium opened on Saturday, Sept. 6, after months of delay. The stadium was officially opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the first football game of the season. William Kirker, the director of LIU Post’s Facilities Department, said that the stadium has many improvements and features that the old stadium did not possess. “The new [home] side of the stadium holds just over 3,000 people,” said Kirker. The stadium will also add a press box to the middle of the newly renovated home side that will contain two areas for filming and VIP seating. Construction on the stadium was supposed to start in Nov. 2013, but was pushed back due to complaints by residents in the Town of Brookville.
