ABILENE - Abilene Christian University's (ACU) new $35 million on-campus football stadium is 'ceremonially' underway.

The new stadium will have a capacity of 12,000 fans.
ACU will be eligible for NCAA postseason play in 2017, after enduring a four-year transition to full Division I status.
ACU's new Elmer Gray Stadium for track and field/soccer opened in April 2015.
