Michigan Building Lacrosse Only Stadium

According to a report from Lacrosse Magazine’s Corey McLaughlin, the University of Michigan is planning on building a 3,000 seat lacrosse only stadium. The Wolverines would add the stadium for their men’s and women’s lacrosse teams.

This is part of a plan to build several new athletic facilities and will be partially funded by Michigan alum and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Michigan has had varsity men’s and women’s lacrosse since the 2011 season.

The Big Ten is now a factor in Division One lacrosse after Rutgers and Maryland moved to the conference this season. Also in are Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State, and there might be more teams joining in the future.

It will be a 3,000 seat stadium will be adjacent to the other athletic facilities in Michigan. They will be the fourth team to have a lacrosse only stadium along with Denver, Notre Dame, and Albany.
