ASU Stadium now Liberty Bank Stadium

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Arkansas State Red Wolves will play their first home football game in the newly renamed Liberty Bank Stadium.

The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees met at 3 p.m. Saturday before the 6 p.m. kickoff against The University of Memphis to adopt a resolution to change the name of the facility from ASU Stadium to Liberty Bank Stadium.

Board Chairman Ron Rhodes said the change is in recognition of a "significant" donation from Liberty Bank of Arkansas to ASU."The contribution was in the amount of $5 million," he said. "This will be an amount that will help us to jump start the new facilities that most of the people know about."

Chairman Rhodes is referring to the $22 million football facility project ASU unveiled Thursday.
