Must be nice to be a Stags fans.

CCSU fans have to sit back and laugh while Fairfield builds a new facility and Central will simply paint the walls in Detrick. :roll:
FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Fairfield University has announced plans to build an 85,000-square foot, 3,500-seat Convocation Center on the current site of Alumni Hall. Projected to open in 2021, the new facility will boast a state-of-the-art broadcast and media center, luxury seating and lounge areas, and updated features that will truly make it a showpiece of Fairfield's modern campus.

Designed by Centerbrook Architects and Planners of Centerbrook, Conn., Fairfield's new Convocation Center will be home to its Division I basketball and volleyball programs, Prep basketball, and will host convocations, concerts, and gatherings for the University and the neighboring community at large. Although the official timetable for construction is still to be determined, the building project is expected to begin in the spring of 2020 and take between 18 and 24 months.

"The new arena will be a versatile, dynamic, and contemporary space," said President Mark R. Nemec, PhD, "providing a much-anticipated upgrade in size, technology, and amenities."
