High Point Solutions Stadium – Rutgers Football Stadium
In June 2011, the Rutgers Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced that High Point Solutions has acquired the naming rights to Rutgers Stadium, the 52,454-seat home of the Rutgers Football program. The crown jewel venue of Rutgers Athletics is now called High Point Solutions Stadium.
In 2009, Rutgers, the Birthplace of College Football, completed a 102-millon dollar expansion of High Point Solutions Stadium to increase the capacity to 52, 454.
The Hale Center, which underwent a $12.5 million expansion, is the home of the Rutgers Football program. Along with the High Point Solutions Stadium adjacent to it, this facility houses some of the most advanced sports and training facilities in the country.
The first phase of the stadium project – construction of nearly 1,000 premium club level mezzanine seats and related infrastructure – was completed on time and on budget for the 2008 football season. The second phase added 11,412 seats, a new scoreboard and sound system, restrooms and concession stands to the stadium’s south end. A new entrance off River Road increases the stadium’s visibility while helping to ease traffic congestion on game days.
The 7,656-square-foot football recruiting lounge and welcome center opened in December of 2009 in the mezzanine level in the new south end zone of the expanded High Point Solutions Stadium. Uses of the facility, which seats more than 300, include:
• Year-round football recruiting functions
• In-game entertaining of appropriate groups
• High end Athletics fundraising opportunities and events.
• Recruiting tours for all other sports on non-football recruiting days
• High-end fundraising for senior level university officials and the Rutgers University Foundation
• Tours for prospective students and their families.
In addition to the new seating, the expansion upgraded the stadium’s sound system, scoreboard and video screen; concessions and rest rooms.
High Point Solutions Stadium has always been a place where students, alumni and friends could get together on a crisp Saturday afternoon in the fall, and cheer on their Knights.
The excitement at High Point Solutions Stadium on game days is at an all-time high in the Tri-State area.
