The playing field at the University of South Alabama’s new Hancock Whitney Stadium will be named Abraham A. Mitchell Field, in recognition of a $5 million commitment from Mitchell to the football stadium project. The gift will be a challenge match to attract additional philanthropic support for the project, the University announced today. The $5 million naming gift for Abraham A. Mitchell Field is structured as a challenge gift that will facilitate additional donations to Hancock Whitney Stadium. Mitchell will match, on a one-to-one basis, any donation to the stadium project from a minimum of $500 to a maximum of $250,000 per donor. The 25,000-seat Hancock Whitney Stadium will be located on the west side of campus, adjacent to the Jaguar Training Center, Football Fieldhouse and football practice fields. Included in the plans are a state-of-the-art video board and sound system, an end-zone terrace and concert stage, 18-seat suites, a club level with 800 seats, and premier chair-back and bench-back seating options. The site will include hospitality areas for tailgating, events and recreational vehicle parking. –Read More
