MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - University of South Alabama officials are asking for $15 million to help build an on-campus football stadium.
WALA-TV reports the school is also asking for $10 million from the city of Mobile and $5 million from taxpayers.
There was no vote to approve the contributions during a meeting with about 250 supporters this week, but it could happen after a meeting on July 10.
University officials estimate the stadium would cost about $75 million.
Some question if the stadium would be in the best interest of Mobile financially.
South Alabama football home games are being played at the 70-year-old Ladd-Peebles stadium.
If the city agrees to provide $10 million toward an on-campus stadium, South Alabama would provide the city with $2.5 million for renovating Ladd.
