That may be true but this is ODU's stadium, not Norfolk's


In an city with two state universities playing football (Norfolk State the other and they have a 30,000 seat stadium four miles from the ODU campus), it makes no sense for Norfolk to invest tens of millions of dollars in a stadium for a possible bowl game or concerts. There is no need for any more bowl games and there is a perfectly fine outdoor concert venue in nearby Virginia Beach that accommodates 20,000. ODU does not intend for this to be the ultimate capacity and can expand in future years.
