October 6, 2021
Western University has announced its newly renamed Western Alumni Stadium in honour of a $1.4M donation from Western’s Alumni Association. The stadium embarked on $5M in renovations over the summer and features a new playing surface, eight-lane running track, and modern facilities. $1M of the Alumni Association’s donation will be used for maintaining the stadium grounds over the next decade. The newly renamed Alumni Lounge is receiving upgrades such as window improvements, new flooring, increased seating capacity, and updates to the audio-visual equipment. “The Alumni Association’s generous gift ensures [the stadium] will continue to be an important landmark for the entire community for generations to come,” said Western President Alan Shepard.
