​​​​CANYON - Administrators are moving full steam ahead after West Texas A&M University students approved an athletic fee hike to pay for an estimated $19 million on-campus stadium.

While the cost of the proposed 12,000-seat stadium is $19 million, the cost of moving a soccer and track facility to make room for the stadium in Buffalo Sports Park, the school’s massive sports complex, adds an additional $2.7 million to the price tag.

The total project cost moves to $26 million when factoring in design, management and other costs.

The campus soccer and track fields are set to be relocated by spring 2017.

Construction of the stadium itself is planned to follow soon thereafter, and the WT football team could play its first game in the new facility in fall 2018.
