Troy University officials today kicked off the construction of the $31 million Trojan Arena with a groundbreaking ceremony on the Troy Campus.
“This new multi-purpose arena is about the future of TROY, and I believe the new Trojan Arena is one of the most important additions we will witness in our lives together at Troy University,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor.
When completed in Fall 2011, Trojan Arena will seat 5,200 people for basketball, and provide 5,600 seats in a floor-use arrangement, said Jim Bookout, Senior Vice Chancellor for Finance and Business Affairs and chair of the New Trojan Arena Design Committee.
Designed not solely as a sports venue, the arena will be the University’s convocation center, providing multi-purpose space for large meetings, commencements, concerts and special events.
